Review №1

Absolutely terrible experience.I placed an order online for pickup and paid in full. After arriving to pick up my order, they stated they did not receive any order. They looked at the receipt on my phone and verified everything appeared to be in order, however, offered no resolution for me. The owner was apparently in the back but simply told the cashier there was no order, and refused to come out and discuss the issue with me. After making me wait over 20 minutes and offering no resolution, I finally stated I would dispute the charge with the credit card company and left. There was not so much as an apology or any effort whatsoever on the part of the restaurant to attempt to remedy the situation. They simply did not care.There are many restaurant options in the area with excellent customer service that deserve our support during these crazy times. This is not one of those restaurants.I will not be returning.

The food was delicious and hot. I ordered 3 super tacos with chicken and really enjoyed my lunch time. The service was very quick and price was fine. I also ordered a carne asada burrito which was huge. I'll definitely come back.

Review №3

Had a excellent experience in here with my girlfriend. The food arrived rapidly and the service is just good. Prices are fair.

Review №4

Quick order. The food came out quick. There are chips and different salsas to choose from. We had huevos rancheros and an order of Al pastor enchiladas. Food was great!

Review №7

Pulled a 10 hour work day “no food or water” to say I was hungry would be an understatement. As I was driving on Camden Avenue I spotted a couple of fast food joints that I tend to frequent so I pulled in the shopping center driveway, when lo and behold I spotted this hole in the wall place. As I walked in I noticed that they have an extensive menu, so much so that pops and I had no idea what to order, I asked the cashier what's good? “Everything” she replies. I laughed and said I'll take one of everything then “then she laughed” as we were deciding pops noticed a TV with revolving pictures of there food items “I'll take that!, as he pointed to the screen” (Shrimp fajita plate, with shrimp, red peppers, onions, rice, beans, tortillas, green onions, guacamole and sour cream) and a coke please.I ordered a Carnitas quesadilla (thinking it would be small) I also ordered a Totra “boy was I wrong!”And a horchata to drink. As pops and I waited for our food I went to there condiment bar. The bar had all you can eat warm tortilla chips, freshly made pico de gallo “so delicious” 4 different sources for your chips and food, sliced roasted hot peppers fresh lime wedges, turnips and mix veggies.When we got our food I was blown away by how much food they give you and the quality of it, the presentation was also appealing to the eyes, oh and did I mention it tastes great also?My only complaint actually was the price point, $35 and some change seem a little high But overall the food and quality is good at this establishment.

They don't pay attention to order details and leave things off the order. Won't order from again.

Review №9

Customer service was good. Got 2 supreme burritos and they were okay. One plus is the free nachos the provide.

Review №10

Food is great and comes out fast. their orange sauce is amazing! Never had a bad experience here. I'm supposed to be on diet and I eat here way too much, probably 2 or 3 times a week. It's addicting.

Review №11

With a wide range of options to choose from for mexican food, El Ranchito has been my favorite to go to. Good quality food each time, with fast and friendly service.

Review №12

Bought some taco's and burritos for workers at my house. Good food, no wait. Good to take out- nice people.

Review №13

Small Taqueria with indoor and outdoor seating. Extensive menu with delicious food. Seems authentic as evidenced by the percentage of Hispanic clientele. Friendly, fast, efficient service.Restroom is spacious and clean for one person.

Review №14

Ate some breakfast here, absolutely amazing!!! Great food, Great Price!!!!! Recommend it to anyone looking to eat some quality Mexican food

Review №15

The food is good, but you need to check your burritos if it's take out. On two occasions I've gotten my order wrong and today I called and the guy insisted I gave him the wrong order which is b's and I even spoke to him in Spanish. What a waste!

Review №16

Overall, I would skip this place unless you had a rabid hankering for burritos and youre on a major time crunch. I ordered the Cali Burrito, a shrimp, and fish taco.Cali burrito - mehhh. coming from SD, this was subpar at bestShrimp and Fish tacos - took these items to-go, and when I opened them up, the disposable paper plate was soggy. gross. both tacos were a huge let down, with the fish being a really not so great thing to eat.Service was fine though! Dude was really nice.

Review №17

Great Al Pastor. Burritos have beans and rice. There's also jumbo burritos that come with tomato's and lettuce. The Salsas they have are great!

Review №18

They offer an awesome variety of delicious food. I liked eating here. Employees are always friendly, rates are fair and the place is always kept clean.

Review №19

This place is delicious, does have tortilla chips and salsa for wait, all you can eat!

Review №20

This was my local taqueria before I moved. My go to item was the super burrito. Quality ingredients, good food.

Review №21

If I could give this restaurant a lower rating, I would. Their system is awfully bad. I went today and they were backed up with their orders, plus I was given the wrong order. Besides everything the restaurant floor was super messy. I won't be going back.

Review №22

This is the spot! Great food

Review №23

This is a great taqueria, the menu is visually attractive and the taco flavor is just delicious.Also they have free chips and great salsa bar

Review №24

Hella great Mexican food. The tripas are amazing!!

Review №25

Food was okay, definitely overpriced for quality and quantity

Review №26

I have lunch here at least once a week.The food and staff are excellent. It's a nice place to bring the family

Review №27

The food isn't too bad.... tacos for the price are really good, not skimpy on the size or the amount of meat they use..... burritos are a good size for the price as well.... Chile Verde plate was awesome, I would definitely recommend getting it.... had the green wet burrito the other day, but I was disappointed in it... over all really good place to eat

Review №28

Very good carne asada super burrito

Review №29

Quesadilla is great. Soft drinks are expensive though ($2.50). I recommend if you want mexican food.

Review №30

This place is nothing fancy but the food is delicious. A really great little spot!

Review №31

When we are craving for taco with tripas extra crispy this is the place we head to satisfy our craving. Great cooks and service except today they have a new lady that was taking order lacks on customer service.

Review №33

Good food, good prices, good service. Salsa bar with chips.

Review №34

Always delicious. The meat here is grilled to perfection, every time. So good. It's our Saturday night go to for weekend quick n tasty. I always get the super burrito and wifey gets crispy tacos or nachos. I know they're yummy cuz she doesn't talk - she just gobbles it down cuz she loves the grilled chicken.

Review №45

Review №46

Get the carne asada here :)

Review №47

I like this Mexican restaurant. I ordered a burrito without beans and rice and with lettuce and cheese. I thought the meat was well spiced and prepared well. A couple of times I found the restaurant closed during times it was listed to be open. I hope they have gotten over whatever problem they had and more reliable with their schedule. Orchard Supply is nearby and with its closing, I will probably not find their location as convenient.

Review №48

Carnitas were really good. Service is always with a smile. Nice salsa bar.. All they need are the Mexican Coca-Cola in the bottles and it would be 5 stars

Review №68

Undetermined for vegetarians. Had a hard time getting clear answer on what is veggie or not. I like supporting local CS chain but sometimes too hard to know what you are eating. Nice folks though.
