"This restaurant is a diamond in the ruff. Service was quicker than I could think of what I needed next and the food was incredibly fresh and delicious. Our server was kind, accurate and very personable -- not to mention rapid service. I ordered the Camarones and they were perfectly cooked and seasoned well. Came with side of rice and beans and guac salad. I had a Mexican Guava beverage that was delightful and learned what Sopapillos were the best delicious way-- bit into a crisp and sweet fried tortilla with chocolate and whipped cream with a cinnamon sugar crust. Delish. Would totally eat here again and again. Craveable food and exceptional service. Love the positive, sweet and contagiously family-oriented energy here."

"First time visiting this restaurant. The service was very good and the food good. There was only one waitress serving and she was still very attentive to our table. We were five adults and one child and none had a complaint about the food. I would definitely recommend it."

"As long-time California residents, we searched far and wide for authentic Mexican food. El Ranchito does not disappoint. Run by a family of native Mexicans, they bring high-quality food, drink, and service to our neck of the woods. Ditch the chains, come out to Clarence and enjoy la comida Mexicans. Muy bueno!"

"My husband and I went here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised! We had the lunch specials, hubby had the Speedy Gonzales which consisted of a taco and enchilada, rice and beans. I had the taco salad and they let me order it the way I wanted. Refried beans, rice, no meat, no dairy. I ordered guacamole on the side and both meals were delicious and we rounded out our meals with sopapillas for dessert! Lunch specials until 3pm. Our first time here and we will definitely return. Waitress was accommodating and friendly."

"Great food, amazing staff, absolutely authentic food and terrific prices. We just got home from there and I said I wish el ranchito would have bought the place Deep South taco moved into. Far far better."

"This was my first time at El Ranchito. I do not live in the area and stopped for dinner. My husband ordered the small house margarita and I ordered a medium Horni margarita. He said that his was very limey. Mine was good, definitely tasted the tequila. We ordered the Ranchito Deluxe for two. It was delicious! The dish included chicken, beef, shrimp and chorizo. Sooo good and not skimpy on the shrimp like most places. This meal had about a dozen shrimp mixed in. The service was good and very friendly. Made me wish that I lived closer!"

"Amazing. Great service the waitress was so nice. We ordered the labandara, 3 tacos and a quesadilla. The food came in out in less than 10 minutes and was hot fresh and delicious. We will be coming back regularly."

"This has become my number one go to for Mexican take out in the east Amherst/Clarence area. I've tried a few things here, but the chicken chimichangas have been the best and usually what I get, with a side order of rice. Really can't go wrong with that. Their prices are similar to other local places and portions good sized. Only complaint I've had so far is the cheese dip takeout order is a very tiny for $4 so I don't get that anymore, but otherwise everything is excellent. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for quick good Mexican takeout."
