Great staff and great authentic Mexican food. We go here every time we are in the area. Went many times while attending Life Chiropractic College back in the early 80's. Nothing has changed and that is a good thing!!!

I ate at El Ranchero and it was very good. There is nothing fancy here, just good food and friendly service. Parking can be a little awkward backing out, not pulling in, when it is crowded. I just find it a comfortable place to enjoy...More

We go there weekly as our local Mexican hang out. Good food, good salsa, good service. La Favorita is our favorite.

A local favorite with Dobbins Air Force Base, this is a good, cheap Mexican place. The salsa, chips and quesadilla are typical favorites.

The place is short on decor, but long on taste, and great value for the money; best enchiladas, combo fajitas, chile colorado, and a fabulous spicy pork dish give you many quality choices.

good food, great margaritas to consistent service. we go there at least once a week. The crowd is composed of young and old alike. Simple Mexican food served hot and fresh made. Simple consistent formula that keeps up coming back

I visit at lunch and for as long as I can remember, I always get grilled chicken nachos. They are the best and no other Mexican restaurant can top them. The salsa is great as well and the chips are always fresh.

The food here is plenty good, they have half price Margarita pitchers on Wednesday, and the people couldn't be more fun and friendly. It's reasonably priced and very consistent. Reliable, fun, fast. A trifecta!
