We love El Ranchito! My children like the P5 and the fajitas are great. It's always fun at the Ranch!

This is the best Mexican Restuarant in Madison. Period. I live in Madison and probably eat here once a week. The waiters call the locals by name. Can't do any better than the 'Ranch!

This place has what you typically expect in a Mexican restaurant. The food is not "gourmet" Mexican, but it is consistently good and the menu is quite extensive. Good Margaritas and nice selection of beers. Very casual and family friendly.

We were greeted immediately, seated quickly, our server arrived immediately and provided great service throughout the meal. The chips/dip were brought quickly and our drinks were cold when brought to the table. Both entrees were hot when they arrived quickly at the table and the server monitored our progress regularly. It was a great experience as it always it.

Service is good. Food is good, nothing spectacular as far as Tex-Mex goes. I have been there a few times and received good service, and the food was good. I have several friends that would not eat at any other Mexican restaurant - I just haven't found it to be spectacular for me!

I had a couple of lunches here as i frequently visit Madison for business. All the food seems pretty good and the portions are huge. The service is good and quick. Very good value for money. I recommend this place. Hope to have many more meals there.

The servicer here is quick, the price is reasonable. It is nothing special but good Americanized Mexican food. It is the one we typically frequent in the Madison, MS area.
