A large group of family members numbering 17 was accommodated very well. Service was attentive and friendly. Food was fresh and appetizing. Prices were reasonable.

We have traveled all over the US and have tasted Mexican food in almost every state. We compare all of them with Rancho Chico. There have been some very good restaurants but none can meet Rancho Chico's food. We come here once a week and enjoy it each time. The super burrito is huge, fajita bowls, fajita salads, super nachos,... More

An unassuming, down to earth restaurant, this place has a HUGE menu....featuring any Mexican food you've ever had, and mostly those you've never tried! Wait staff, young and friendly. Food was delicious and the presentation on the plate was wonderful. Time from order to service was minimal. Prices low. Can't beat this place!

Well our first was Thai food choice, but place was full. We all decided then on Mexican. Upon arrival, it took us a while to be seated for such a big party (7). The server Juan wasnt very social. Being that it was our first time..he didn't recommend anything. One of my friends ordered a Presidente beer as stated on... More

Excellent food! Best prices in town! Service fast & friendly! Clean atmosphere & well lighted! Had a taco salad, guacamole was extra but I really enjoy it! My husband had carne asada & asked for the beans separated, & the were delicious, I help to eat them! My cousin asked for chicken fajitas & they can a little bit burned!

Food is excellent however the service at the end spoiled a great meal. Server was fine until he brought the check, took him nearly 15 minutes to comeback and pick it up along asking for a second time for a takeout contaner, it took the server over 10 minutes to return with the check so I could sign and again...

I arrived after the lunch rush. Food was fast as were the drinks. The meal was typical American Mexican and quite tasty.

Food was good and plentiful. Surprised there was no pork on the menu. The salsa had good flavor and the chips were fresh. The only bad thing was getting water glasses replenished.mother than that the meal was good, great lunch specials and the atmosphere was authentic Mexican done classy.

Stopped by the Stuart location for an early dinner. The only thing that move slower than our waiter Raul was the melting of the polar ice caps. However, it is a close race. Our order was eventually taken and the food arrived quickly....well most of it anyway. I ordered the Taco/Tamale plate and my wife had the Carne Asada. The... More

The restaurant uses a lot of authentic hand carved wood tables and decorations. At 7:30 on a Friday night we had to wait about 20 minutes for a seat for five adults. Then we waited another 30-minutes to be served our meals. The servants were good however. The food was very good, but was Americanized Mexican (which I prefer). I... More
