Love El Ranchito!
I have been going to El Ranchito for many years now. I just love this Oak Cliff spot. On this occasion we happen to be there for their 30th Anniversary. Margaritas, multiple mariachi's, and Elvis impersonators, could you ask for more? The food is always great, their queso is fantastic and not be missed. Another notable dish is the Parrillada Mexican which is chicken, beef, sausage and rib fajitas all served on hibachi. It's perfect for sharing with friends. TIP: If you are visiting with kids there is often women walking around with buckets of light up trinkets and glow sticks ect. Save some money and hit the dollar store first and bring your own, kids will still love it. And second, bring a few bucks to tip the mariachi's. They are amazing!

The mariachis were dynamite;
The mariachis were dynamite; took my uncle from Maryland who is a classical saxophonist and he loved it! As always, food was great and service was very good. They always seem so glad to share their culture and cuisine with us as guests.

The food is very authentic and very well priced. always a line outside in the evenings which tells u how good it is. one of my favorite places to take a date or family that comes in from out of town.

Festive and fun
I took my mom and girlfriend for dinner here on a Sunday night at 8pm and the place was full. The mariachi band makes it a fun experience. The salsa is the best in the city in my opinion. The food is moderately priced, and definitely above average, but not awesome. There are also several authentic North Mexican dishes. I recommend this place for a unique, authentic Mexican dinner experience.

I enjoyed the ambience--great for a birthday party. The food was solid, but my Carne Asada was a bit salty. However, the handmade tortillas were incredible.
The live music was awesome. I would visit again on a special occasion.
