My mother and I stopped in at Los Rancheros. We were greeted with very friendly and fun servers. Nearly the best we had met. We shared the finger food platter, coconut shrimp, and strawberry flambeau. It was so DELICIOUS! It is fast and easy to get to, and I highly recommend it! The prices were very reasonable, considering the quality... More

Wonderful balcony views especially at night. The service is attentive. The food is better than average, the beef is superb and tasty.

Myself and 3 friends stumbled across this place one Saturday and was enticed by the ladies night special they had. We sat upstairs on the balcony and was waited on by the lovely Candido all night! We ordered the Mexican platter and nachos which was more than enough to feed a small village. Compared to some other places we'd eaten... More

We go to this place for two very specific things, the fresh guacamole made tableside and Pacifico beer which is surprisingly difficult to find in this part of the country.

After buffet dinner every night and 4 separate trips down 5 th Ave we were looking for a place to have a special dinner out on the town! We had a drink at most of the the hot spots along the way but the atmosphere of Los Rancheros kept pulling us back. This was no disappointment, the food was incredible,... More

The food was wonderful. I highly recommend the Margaritas. I have had Margaritas at many of the local establishments throughout my visit but, hands down, do believe the Margaritas at Los Rancheros were the best overall. Did I mention that the food was great too.

We stopped by here during one of the day trips. I wouldn’t recommend it as I barely ate. I simply just had tacos, nothing else to compliment the dish. I only enjoyed watching the server bring out my drink on top of their head. Wonder what happens if it falls over, LOL! for more review check out my blog!
