We have been coming to this restaurant for close to 60 years, it originally was on Hwy 90 W and moved to the current location 20 years or so ago. We have eaten most every dish on the menu and my favorites are Green chicken enchiladas which have green tomato sauce and sour cream over a chicken enchilada. Another favorite... More

Great Tex-Mex food with a Mexican flavor. Just 5 minutes off I-10 at the 123 bypass . exit. Go toward Seguin about a mile and take the u turn to get back to other side going back to I-10- Under live oak trees - nearby to (not so good) Chinese Dragon restaurant.

The restaurant was clean and the atmosphere was nice. We thought we had found a great Mexican restaurant during our visit to Seguin. We were wrong. I don't know what they served with their chips, but it wasn't salsa. I think it was an attempt at pico de gallo. But, it wasn't that either. Whatever it was it wasn't good.... More

I ordered Enchiladas with Tacos and was sorely disappointed. I have loved Mexican food since I was very young in the 1950's. I grew up in the Valley and came to love cumin, one of the quintessential spices in good Mexican food. This food was basically void of cumin or any other seasoning I have come to expect in authentic... More

I enjoyed the big dining room with lots of natural light but unfortunately the food is quite bland. Just about tasteless.

You can always count on good service and deliciously fresh food at El Ranchito. It has been a long time favorite of all the locals for many years. Highly recommend it.
