About Us

We proudly serve the most authentic Mexican cuisine possible, freshly prepared food from our dedicated kitchen staff committed to our delicious recipes ranging from the region of San Luis Potosi, Mexico. Our Motto: “EL SABOR QUE TU QUIERES” translates to The Flavor You Crave! We are focused in providing our
customers a warm family Mexican dinning experience.

1983 is the year EL Rancho Mexican Restaurant opened its door for business in the heart of Southwest Detroit better know as Mexican Town. The Avila family was
focused on bringing the flavors of San Luis Potosí to Detroit. They wanted the
customers to have a unique dinning experience from our welcoming atmosphere,
family style service and awesome Mexican dishes. As the word spread, so did our
popularity establishing EL Rancho as a true local favorite place for authentic
delicious Mexican food.

A lot has changed over the past few decades but one thing is constant, EL Rancho’s
commitment and passion to serving the best ingredients freshly and authentically
prepared. The Avila family is still moving forward keeping the tradition strong in
Southwest Detroit. We thank our entire loyal customers for keeping El Rancho open for business; we are here because of you. Remember your Grandparents approved
of us; your Mother & Father brought you here and now your bringing your kids to
enjoy El Rancho.
