The food and service at El Rancho is great. The servers are very friendly and recommend great Mexican food as per your taste requirements. They have a lot of options and the food is authentic Mexican unlike other tex-mex like Chipotle. Chips and salsa were amazing - so much that I mostly filled my stomach with those.

I have reviewed this place several times as I do frequent this location. Usually on business, but sometimes with wife when we have the car washed next door at the best car wash in Cincinnati. My standard fare is the chicken chime, and today was no exception. You really can not go wrong here. Very friendly staff, quick service and... More

This is a great place to enjoy a quick lunch for business. Easy to carry on a conversation. Atmosphere is authentic Mexican. I like this place a lot and that is simply why we keep coming back. My favorite go-to dish is a chicken chime ala carte. With the chips and salsa, i liken it to a Mexican version of... More

Great food, delivered hot and timely. Server was polite and worked well to keep things pleasant. I like that music was not blaring but rather played in the background. Love coming here.

Have been here several times in the past with customers and also associates from our company. Food is always good, very authentic. Chips are light and tasty - get a little queso to go with them and it's a great treat. My typical go-to is a chicken chime ala carte. Put that with the chips and it's like getting a... More

We've eaten in quite a few Mexican restaurants around Cincinnati, and this one is probably the best. The Carnitas dish has been worth ordering more than once. (Side note: I once absent-mindedly left my jacket behind in this restaurant and didn't miss it for a week, but they still had it under the front desk. Very considerate.)

We missed the Happy Hour by a minute and that bummed me out. The food and service, however, were very good. The food came hot and our orders were correct. The server kept the chips and salsa refreshed and both were enjoyed with my Margarita. While I can find no complaints with our meal, I do feel, however, that as... More
