When my b/f and I went to El Ranchero the chips were so thin that they fell apart in the salsa and the meat in his dish was so overdone that it could not be chewed. The restaurant was also dirty. Eat across the street at Los Portales. It's not excellent (I've been spoiled by out of region Mexican restaurants that know how make great food), but it's certainly better than the utter garbage served at El Ranchero.

Great food, great service, friendly wait staff.
Chips and salsa are delicious. If like it spicy, try the salsa verde or the pico de gallo.
My favorite Mexican restaurant. I was in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado this summer and ate at lots of Mexican restaurants and none of them were as good as El Ranchero

Let me first say, the decor of the interior is awesome! It is brightly painted and delightfully gaudy. The food was good aside from the fact that the cheese tastes like processed cheese food (american) not cheese, and there's lard in their refried beans. So, if you don't mind these things, check El Ranchero out. Regardless, it'll be fun.

Now, I don't exaggerate when I say El Ranchero is the most popular spot in town to get tasty Mexican fare! The parking lot of this restaurant on any given night is a testament to its popularity. And if you doubt the number of vehicles in sight, then step inside the door and begin experienceing from first sniff the wonderful aromas (and later tastes) that make this restaurant tops in its class!

The portions are hearty, the flavors...sublime and the customer service is osme of the best in the area! All these combine to make a wonderufl dining experience for anyone who enjoys Mexican food!

Located on Sturgis Drive, just off the main drag in Iowa City, it is easy to find and easier still to make one of your favorite places to dine....give it a try and you will soon see why El Ranchero is the #1 place to dine in the area!

PROS: ....wonderful food, good prices and great service
CONS: ...can be crowded...so plan ahead!
