Friendly staff, reasonably priced, tasty tacos, and bad karaoke after midnight. What more can you ask for?

They deliver it usually within an hour, which could be improved but they are always busy.\r

THE BEST Hispanic Restaurant in the Avondale neighborhood! This is authentic Mexican food, plus they have a few other, non-ethnic choices on their menu. El Ranchito in Avondale is clean, cozy and family-oriented for eating in, and their

I order from Ranchito sometimes 4 times a week. It is so affordable to feed my family, get a 6 pack or a margarita, burritos, tacos and now with this amazing semi-high quality Italian side menu they lay waste to whatever notion of Leona's

OK - This place gets four stars just for having $.99 margaritas on Thursday nights. YES I said it - $.99 margaritas. Margaritas have the power to make my friends and me giggle and get silly. They're so delicious and we always have a

I live right down the street from this joint. The only thing nice about it is the convenient location and the hours. Service is very slow, and when i eat there i feel as if the waitresses dont really listen to us very well. This afternoon

Slow service (and only in Spanish), even though the restaurant was virtually empty and 2 waitresses were seemingly "assigned" to our table. Don't try ordering a beer based on their beer display because they only carry certain ones - the one I settled on was not even in their display. My son wouldn't eat his fries -- no wonder, they tasted like a burrito. They wouldn't accept a gift certificate that I obtained from a prominent local radio station. I couldn't determine why they wouldn't accept it (because of the language barrier) but my point of contention was that it had no expiration date on it. They only give you a fork: My son had to stir his coffee with a fork and I had to butter my bread with one.

Despite the poor reviews from 2008, went to El Ranchito and had a great meal with good service at bidget prices. Plus they are open very late and delover very late. 99cent margaritas (no limit) on Thursdays!

My husband and I used to love this restaurant for its authentic food and long delivery hours. Recently (as in the past month or so) El Ranchito must have come under new ownership, because the food is now terrible, they charge extra for cheese and sour cream (even if you have a dish that's supposed to include these items), the service is bad, and they changed their hours, so you can no longer order so late. We were extremely disappointed in this change, and will no longer be ordering from El Ranchito.

Don't order from here. We ordered online and after we waited an hour, we called. They claimed they didn't receive our order. After I complained, they suddenly had our order and claimed it was on its way. We waited 25 minutes (they told us it would be here in 5 to 10) and called back. We were first placed on hold and then told to wait another 5 to 10 minutes. The food never arrived.

When we moved into the city we didn't know where to go for good Mexican food. We tried a few places and this is IT! Their food is always fresh and very tasty, and the cost is pretty inexpensive (adults under $10) Service was okay, as the waitresses didn't know a lot of english, but it wasn't a big problem for us. They stay open late, too!

PROS: Fresh, authentic mexican food at reasonable cost
CONS: Staff don't speak much English
