Message from the Business

In 1983, after the success of La Calle Doce, Oscar and Laura Sanchez wanted to open another restaurant that didn't 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 Norteno (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.
