Mexican / Southwestern

In 1983, after the success of La Calle Doce, Oscar and Laura Sanchez wanted to open another restaurant but they didn’t want to duplicate their previous success nor did they want to open just another Tex-Mex restaurant. Oscar wanted something that wasn’t found in Dallas, something that reminded him of home. Since both Oscar and Laura are from Monterrey, Nuevo Leon in Northern Mexico, they decided to open a restaurant that specialized in Comida Norteño (northern food) and Tex-Mex featuring dishes such as cabrito, mollejas, and asado de puerco. Today El Ranchito is known for it’s authentic Mexican food, freshly made tortillas and festive atmosphere where mariachis play daily. These elements – the food, the music and the friendly staff – have helped El Ranchito achieve it’s ultimate goal of creating an atmosphere where the customer feels as if they are back home in Monterrey.

And it is good goalie problem it is very busy at peak times so I’d recommend going a little bit after that as the waiters were very busy but they kept up. And the food is very very good.

Service is still very good but all the food was bland and precooked. I hope they can figure it out since this is such a classic.

We went for Mariachis but we had no idea it is $20 per song and they should be playing songs no matter what for the ambiance. The food expensive and tacos al carbon barely had meat. Waitress was good and attentive. We will go next time for Tex-Mex to Campisanos. Very dissappointed.

They took too long to bring food. Once food arrived it was cold. We had 1 waiter for 20 people. We needed 2 waiters. It was too much for the waiter. The guests had to wait for tickets to pay for at least 20 min. The guests were getting restless. I am torn about recommending the restaurant for large parties because of the serv.

If it weren’t for them, I would not go. 3 of our 8 had finished their meals before the other 5 came out. Worst queso in Dallas. Margarita’s are not very memorable. The entrees were great though. I love the space. Lots of memories that represent oak cliff.

She was very sweet and nice thou. I think she needed help. Also the Mariachi sings when requested so the entertainment is sporadic and not consistent. We requested one song and they were very entertaining and sounded great.

It was my 40th birthday and unfortunately some of the food was not good and we still got charged for it . We kept having to get the waiter . Also there was spilled glass underneath the table that no one came to clean had to ask twice.
