We looked for a dinner place near our VRBO, and our Mexican food low light is always on so we found El Rancho. Great little family run place, free flowing chips and salsa is always a good beginning. We order combinations and everything was fresh...More

Over priced, small portions. My wife's chili relleno was very greasy and over cooked. My enchiladas were good but small.

This restaurant is owned by a local mexican family. To my knowledge it is still the matriarch of the family making the beans from scratch and pounding out the tortillas in the back. Great food, great services

Family owned, friendly staff, good food! Nice Mexican music and decor! We had chicken supreme burrito and chicken mexi-bowl. It was a nice change to go to a Mexican restaurant and eat food that actually tasted like Mexican food!

Excellent Lunch Menu and Options. Voted best in Flathead Valley and easily understood. In-house salsa was delicious. I recommend the mole enchiladas.

Their food is probably the best Mexican food in town- No beer or wine license- Mom is the cook and the food is great.

The same family that ran La Hacienda in Whitefish. Great, polite staff and amazing food. Only drawback is the lack of a liquor license for beer and margaritas (but rumor has it they are working on it). Still deserves 5 stars!
