El Ranchito is now gone. One of the best hole in the wall places in the area. The place was absolutely incredible. The reviews that referenced the name changes were talking about the el agave. Different place that is definitely mediocre. Hated to see the...More

I've been going to El Ranchito for years. Now that I live in Sarasota, I always make it a point to stop back for either lunch or dinner. Good food and friendly service

This restaurant keeps changing its name but it was El Agave two days ago. Service was fine but could not compensate for the tasteless food. Nothing was bad but just had no life. We surely will not go again.

So, the title might have been misleading as I didn't have guacamole, but the food was incredible. The Picadillo was just as my Cuban madre makes! Delicious!! MUST try the smoothies! I will certainly return.

Waited 30 minutes for coffee - no cream and sent it back. Speedy Gonzalez wasn't , ¼ cup black beans straight from a can. Salsa had no body - was pureed and no cilantro. Extremely slow- husband had fajitas and not that good. Won't be...More

This was recommended by several friends. They were right!!! Very authentic Mexican. From the chips and salsa to enchiladas. Beef in the taco was very moist and not dried out. Sweet plantains were 👍👍. My friends' whole fish was a little dried out but everything...More
