Welcome to El Rancho Mexican Restaurant

We're a Daytime, Evening and Late-night Mexican eatery on East Broadway that began targeting the college crowd. As it turns out, it seems we're serving a lot more than that and we love it. Our fearless leader Faustino Vasquez came to the United States from Mexico in 1977 hoping for a better life. Three and a half decades later, he's the proud owner of one of downtown's most popular eateries. Behind the counter, El Rancho cooks and employees work like a well-oiled machine, dancing back and forth between the grill and preparation line. Tortillas line the grill. Chimichangas are deep-fried. Fajita meat steams before it's slapped into a heated tortilla. Nacho cheese flows from ladles, covering endless orders of Grilled Chicken Nachos. This is El Rancho!
