The menu had many good looking choices. We ordered and the food came fairly quick. It was very good. The waitress didn't check back to see... More

Los Rancheros was a pleasant surprise that had great food and service. They sat our party of 12 right away and got our drink and food out quickly. Everyone enjoyed the experience.

I always love a good Mexican restaurant,& this is so good! They have a variety of different items to choose from. Great margaritas! Awesome chips and salsa.... You have got to go at night and eat on the patio with the great ambiance !

Ordered taco salad...how could this go so wrong. It was over $9.00 for a partial taco salad!!!! I ordered nachos at a Hardee's in Nashville for under $3.00 that was superior to Los Rancherous

We were in town for a little while and tried this place. We all had enchiladas that had no beans in them and were really good. The chips were good and the cheese sauce excellent. Service was prompt and very helpful. I would go back if I returned to the town and wanted quality Mexican food

Was pleasantly surprised when a friend took us here for supper recently. Looks like a "typical" Mexican restaurant, but was definitely a notch above! The food was seasoned perfectly, not with a heavy hand as is sometimes the case. Service was just the right amount of attentiveness. Margaritas were great, and were a $1.99 special that night.

We were here for a softball tournament and needed a place to hold 25-30 people. I called about an hour before we wanted to eat and the manager was very helpful. They were able to accommodate all of us, and easily handle 10 separate checks. Service and food was fantastic.
