In 1983, after the success of La Calle Doce, Oscar and Laura Sanchez wanted to open another restaurant but they didn't want to duplicate their previous success nor did they want to open just another Tex-Mex restaurant. Oscar wanted something that wasn't found in Dallas, something that reminded him of home. Since both Oscar and Laura are from Monterrey, Nuevo Leon in Northern Mexico, they decided to open a restaurant that specialized in Comida Norteno (northern food) and Tex-Mex featuring dishes such as cabrito, mollejas, and asado de puerco. Today El Ranchito is known for it's authentic Mexican food, freshly made tortillas and festive atmosphere where mariachis play daily. These elements - the food, the music and the friendly staff - have helped El Ranchito achieve it's ultimate goal of creating an atmosphere where the customer feels as if they are back home in Monterrey.
When my sister comes in from out of town we always go eat TexMex. I’ve always lived in Oak Cliff, but never ate at El Ranchito. It has some pretty good reviews so we thought we would give it a try. My sister ordered the pork, she said it was tough. It looked tough too. My other sister had the shrimp, she said it was acceptable. I ordered the Chiles Relleno. If you didn’t see the stem of the pepper sticking out you couldn’t tell what it was. It looked like a puddle, and it didn’t taste very good. Quite gross. The salsa was so hot one sister couldn’t eat it at all. The service was adequate. There were no mariachi bands, nor any music anywhere. If you like CNN news, that was what was on the TV. We won’t be going back.
go for breakfast! the machacado con juevos is great... I dont really like going for dinner.way too loud. (if you dont like loud mariachi, they arent usually there early in the day) but theres always takeout!
it was really really aweful. DONT GO EAT HERE!!! i have been before many times , but it was never as bad as today. My food was brought to me wrong. i ordered chicken and they brought beef. the waitress served my date his food and took mine back.he ate. and i was expected to eat alone when my food came. i refused the food and didnt eat at all. i was not going to sit there and eat alone.
it was so unclass.really poor waitstaff.
also the place was so crowded ,i am surprised they dont get fined by the fire marshall. people and tables so crowded together they could touch elbows while eating.it was really a bad place. the employees did care about anything.no smiles no care , no anything. just worried about how many people they can get money from ,i guess. i told the manager and he didnt care.he said i must pay anyway.i said i will not pay, i sent it back,and i told him he was wrong as a manager.he needs training, alot.i hope you all read this before going there.
they dont care about you or your needs.they dont respect you as a consumer and they dont respect the fact that we , the client , pay their bills.
SO DO NOT GO HERE ITS BAD.
The food is not that good, I didn't like it. The customer service is not good either, I order a drink and they and they forgot about it. I found a piece of wire in my food and they still wanted me to pay for it even though I didn't eat it. The only good thing is the mariachi.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE El Ranchito!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The food is excellent, and the ambiance is great!!! They have live Mariachi Music and I think that rocks!! Lots of Mexican restaurants have Mariachi singers that go from table to table, but they charge per song per request. El Ranchito provides the Mariachi DAILY, for FREE!!!! It's just the little thing that adds to that extra something!!! My only complaint is that the restaurant is a little small and a little over crowded,oh! And the parking stinks!!...but other than that it's PERFECT!!
I went there with about 8 of my friends to have dinner. The service and the live music were great. The decorations was very much the feel of a mexican restaurant. The food however was not up to my standards. Maybe because i've had mexican food all my life but i was not impressed. I had the enchiladas with beans and rice (btw the restaurant charges extra for beans and rise with this plate.) The drinks did come in an oversized cup which was good. I have been to many mexican restaurants and El Ranchito did not impress me in the least bit. But I would go there again just for the great music and good decorations.
