American
An iconic restaurant, brewery and music venue serving Colorado-mountain cuisine and incredible front range views since 1948. El Rancho is exactly what you crave –mashed potatoes dripping in gravy, Sunday night prime rib, weekend brunches and margaritas right on tap. All the classics, all the comfort, and all the Colorado –with the delight you’d expect from a Bonanno restaurant.

    Great service. The food is OK, but not the quality one would expect from a Frank Bonnano restaurant, especially given the prices.

    Service was good, Mountain View was nice, but disappointed with one of the top menu items. The honored guest’s Ossobuco was dry and tough, not much meat, and obviously not prepared properly. The sandwiches were fine.

    The views are spectacular, the staff was very friendly, but the breakfast burrito was almost all potatoes, and the green chile was scant (could barely taste it). Very disappointed with the mandatory 22% gratuitiy added to the bill. I'm happy to tip more than that, but I don't like the mandatory policy at all.

    The atmosphere was fun. The wait staff was very friendly but was serving a lot of tables at once, so it’s a better place to go when you want to take your time with dinner. The prices were high but the portions were large. The food was good but more fried / buttered than I expected.

    The Christmas to go dinner was excellent. You just pick a time to pick up and they prepare your dinner to go. Partial cooking so all you need to do is finish cooking it. NY Steak, Roasted Potatoes, Vegies, Salad and corn bread were all homemade and tasted great. This was the easiest Christmas dinner we have ever cooked at home. Can’t wait to taste the chocolate ganache dessert tonight. Way to go El Rancho Chefs!

    We had such a wonderful experience and dinner at El Rancho. Had the chicken pot pie and the brisket dinner and both were amazing. Service was excellent, fast and friendly. Will be trying the Christmas to go experience this year.

    We always liked El Rancho but this new iteration was disappointing. Very slow and unfriendly service…the waitstaff acted like they couldn’t wait to get away from the table, even before everyone was done ordering. Several times we had to flag them down again because they didn’t stay to hear what everyone needed. It took an inordinately long time to receive drinks or food based on how many staff members they have vs how many tables were seated. We asked the guy who brought our food for something and he said “I’m just a food runner, can’t help you.” The pot pie tasted burnt and the penne pomodoro had a very strange flavor. The tater tots were good though! My mother’s trout was delicious she said but it was a teeny piece on a giant bed of fricassee lettuce with nothing else. Just disappointing as we hoped under the new management the historic El Rancho would be renewed and improved and would survive. Not much hope for that based on our visit. Not worth the drive from South Evergreen.

    We were looking forward to going back to El Rancho after new ownership. Food was great, lots of choices, service very good & attentive. We had guests who have never been there. So happy to see a good dinner crowd, TVs for sports in bar, nice size dinner servings. They are brewing own beer. Go back for El Rancho experience! Big Chief Mountain
