Great atmosphere, good service, satisfying food. Over priced compared to average Mexican food prices, but the downtown location makes this a fun spot. Didn't care for my pinot grigio (also over priced). My husband enjoyed the Margarita.

I like this location better than the Laguna Niguel location, but I am not impressed with the food. The only good thing is Mama Avila's Torilla Soup. That is delicious.

Great food! Horrible service. I have ended up paying in cash in order to finally get out of the place. The food on the other hand is very good and the prices are reasonable.

This family owned restaurant is authentic Mexican food with a full bar - good Margaritas. You may wait a bit for a table during dinner time on weekends and the service is fair at best, but what can you expect from a casual place. I go there for the food, especially the tacos.

I was not expecting too much before arriving, but I left pleasantly suprised! The service was incredible, while the decor is second to none. It truly was a great experience. I recommend this to family's and singles and anyone in between. Don't forget to try the cadillac margaritas because they were the best I have ever had...Viva El Ranchito!

Message from Avila's El Ranchito

It all started in the kitchen over 40 years ago. Mama brought with her recipes that have been in her family for generations, paying strict attention to freshness and quality. Today, the almost 50 year tradition that has made our authentic Mexican cooking legendary continues to be served at the family's eleven restaurants. It is still a family business, family owned, family operated and family loved. Mama and Papa eventually shared the responsibility of running El Ranchito with their children and now their grandchildren. Each restaurant is under the personal care of a family member, guaranteeing the reputation the family has earned for treating the customers "like part of the family." Come in and visit us and we are sure you will have a great experience!
