Definitely worth another visit. Salsa was fresh and could really taste flavors! Dinner choices were well portioned. Great wait staff. Crowded, so obvious it's a good choice for locals. Kind of hidden in a strip mall but worth finding.

As a creature of habit; I get my usual combo of a taco, enchilada and chile relleno. All very delicious. Fast service.

Wife and I had a quick lunch there this week. She had the special "Huevos con chorizo". I had the chile relleno con habichuelas. Just right serving portions for lunch and the service was great. Excellent meal for the cost.

We always enjoy having a meal at El Ranchito. The food is hot, plentiful and excellent. If you want a tasty margarita or beer, they have a small selection that does the trick. They are willing to adjust menu items to accommodate vegetarians and vegans....More

El Ranchito is one of my favorite restaurants. My husband loves the food, especially the fajita burrito, no. 50. I usually get chicken enchiladas, fajita quesadilla or the spicy burrito. They are all yummy. Can't beat it for fast service or the price at $23...More

I'm not sure if this is affiliated with the El Ranchito in Crystal River. It could be a local chain, but I couldn't find a corporate web site.
