Very basic and I found the food to be bland. Not what one really expects to find when they go out for Mexican food.

I enjoy Mexican cuisine and this place is a hole in a wall but it was terrific food with large portions that makes me prefer this place rather the other place across the street. If you go, bring your appetite and you will not be disappointed with anything you order.

We have been going to El Rancho for a long time and have never been disappointed. The food is traditional Mexican. I have never left hungry and the prices are very reasonable. El Rancho is one of our favorite restaurants.

Great chips and salsa. Salsa both mild and medium, did not ask but they probably had hot also.. Our Red Hat Group went there. The food was terrific, no one had a problem. The lunch specials were huge portions for $5.99 - $8.50. Service was excellent, even with the large group. So accommodating, the waitress even took the time to... More

Wanted something different for dinner with the children. Our previous trip was very similar. Staff was attentive, refilled my strawberry Margarita and kids coke. Salsa and chips very good and so was the main meals. Fajitas, grilled chicken and steak combo are excellent.

Fast if sometimes abrupt service. Food is typical for the genre. Prices seem fair and in-line. Worth a visit.

We were on a 3 day motorcycle ride and just happened to see this wonderful little place while sitting at the light. Wow, it was really, really good and I had the best tacos I have ever had. My husband had a pork dish and was so pleased. We would travel back to Deland to eat here again. I have... More
