The dinner was delicious. I had a taco salad. The portions were large well worth the price. The service tonight was exceptional!! Katrina was more than accommodating! It made for a pleasant evening!

We frequently visit this Rancho and it's hit or miss every time with the service. Last night we decided to sit in the bar booths hoping for a better experience. After over 5 minutes at the table we finally got acknowledged. We had to ask for the chips and salsa, they were not brought to us upon sitting. I ordered... More

Rancho Chico has typical Mexican decor with Typical Mexican food. Service is prompt and the servers understand and speak English. The chips, salsa and guacamole is always fresh and delicious. In the past, My standbys are the chimichangas and Fajitas. They are always served hot and fresh. They have a full bar with a nice selection of margaritas and Mexican... More

There a 4 or 5 of these around I actually think this is the better one. There is nothing like good Mexican food and they have it. Great homemade salsa. Give it a try!

There aren't enough damning words in the English language to describe the awful "food" on offer here. Greasy, poor-quality meat; tasteless; vile. Avoid.

Enjoyed a good dinner here. The kids liked the cheese queso(white cheese). Fish tacos were good and the fajitas as well!! Generous portions. Service was a bit spotty, seemed like we were taken care of by a hodge lodge of people as they thought about it. But we were there with another family with kids so we were talking and... More

Have had poor quality food and the worst margarita's ever. Staff is mediocre and ambiance is non-existent. Will not be going there in the future.

Our waiter, Elezar, was terrific. We started with the Margaritas which were $7.00 each. They were OK, but lacked the distinctive Tequila flavor. They should charge a dollar more and put some Tequila in them. We had the Super Nachos with ground beef for an appetizer. The plate was loaded and very good. For a main course my husband had...

When we are in our Tequesta home (Nov-April) Rancho Chico is our "go to" weekday restaurant (1-2 times per week). My wife's favorite (among others) is the Chile Rejeno; mine is the Camarones Al Ajo!! Great Magaritas at a GREAT PRICE!!
