We came to Las Trancas after hiking the Big Schloss trail. It was a scenic but cold day and we needed a good dinner. We are all huge fans of Mexican food. I had the enchiladas poblanas and my boyfriend had a "combo" with an enchilada and a chile relleno. I ordered a margarita to start. The margarita and our... More

Place was rough from broken door to really "worn" bathrooms. This place has seen many days as different eateries. Food was tasty and staff was friendly.

This place is nice, clean and it has good food. Quick service and fairly priced. I don't think you can go wrong here. They have pretty decent margarita's also. If you have a large they have the seating with semi-private room. Not much of a view from their patio but you can sit outside if you like.

This is the worst Mexican restaurant I've ever been to and I've eaten at them all across the country. In my opinion if you mess up a chili relleno you are not a Mexican restaurant. It's a basic dish. Never have had a server be polite yet. Just a smile would help. Not ever going back.

This was our first time at LasTrancas since we were just in Woodstock for 2 days. The group of us were very pleased with our service & food for our late dinner. I don't know when we will be back in the area, but we will eat there again.

Without a doubt the most hopefully forgettable Mexican meal I can remember! On two previous visits some months ago, my impression was favorable and both the food and experience was above average. Tonight, my drinks arrived before the chips and salsa for which I finally had to ask to be served. The margarita was actually warm! Hope does a margarita... More

I've been here several times and if you want quick service and fuss free food please come here. I wouldn't go out of my way to say this is the best Mexican around but overall if you are hungry and looking for some chips and salsa and some quick service stop by.

We had a large group come in and called ahead and they had a section ready for us. The food was good. However the restaurant needs some major renovations. The women's bathroom was very old and falling apart. The bathroom divider walls were not secure and you could not lock the stall door. The knob for the lock was missing... More

This is the second time we have ate here with our Virginia family. The food is great! Super fast service too. Also it's inexpensive! It's great to take the entire family or just a couple. I love this place!
