My son and his wife live in the area, so while we were visiting they took us here. It wasn't very busy for a Saturday night. The waiter was attentive and the food was good. Each person liked what they got, but I guess I wasn't careful enough when reading the menu because the shrimp dish I ordered was served... More

Los Rancheros is a fairly typical Mexican restaurant, with a wide variety of items on their menu. The surroundings are pleasant, and all of the food we had was good. Our server was pleasant, but our service was erratic at best. He was slow to bring the chips and salsa that we saw all the other tables around us had,... More

This place never disappoints with food. It is always served quickly and is prepared well. The service ie excellent! We go here a lot and have never had a bad meal. The only reason I did not give them a perfect score this time is because it was my first visit there when the menus were dirty. That is one... More

Date night with my wife & the service was very good and fast. Food very tasty and a great price. I like Los Rancheros for many reasons, but don't overlook the clean ascetics and friendly staff. Didn't get 5 stars because it wasn't busy enough to really put them to the test.

Nestled between a Fairfield Inn and Courtyard, it's easy too overlook this nice little piece of Mexico. Decor is nice and a little kitschy, but well done. Service is attentive and friendly. Margaritas are first rate as is the food. This is a must stop on the Springfield food circuit.

We eat here about every other month. Quality is consistently very good. Reasonable prices and fast service. I tried their guacamole today and it is excellent. Nice and fresh, not too spicy. Taco, burrito, enchilada all great. Staff is friendly too. Lunch menu available M-Sat.

My husband and I split a chicken fajita. If you are a light eater, it is plenty for two. The food was cooked well and service was fast. I would have given it a five, but the lime margaritas had a little too much lime.
