How would you describe the cuisine at Ranchero and what would you say is your signature dish.
We have authentic Southwestern cuisine! We offer steaks and fajitas, but our in house smoked baby back ribs, zesty and smokey, are the winner! If you add a side of our RCQ bbq with over 20 ingredients you can’t go wrong!
Ranchero goes from a family friendly restaurant to a fun, live music club. What can you tell me about the live entertainment?
After the families dine, Ranchero Cantina transforms into nightlife. We come alive with live music of all types, from national acts to wedding style bands, to large 12 piece bands and classic Rock and Roll. From the Allman Brothers to more recent hits on the radio, we are your live entertainment venue!
We noticed there’s a back room with a pool table and darts. Can we expect league play in the future?
We call our back room “The Ranch Bar”. It features a full bar, TVs, darts and pool— it’s great, live music in the front and games on in the back. Thursday nights are especially fun with Happy Hour menu available during all NFL games. Currently we do not have a pool or dart league, however we are looking to sponsor leagues in the near future.
How many brands of Tequila do you have available? What’s the most expensive Tequila shot?
We have way too many tequilas for me to count on both hands, Anejos, Respsados, Blancos, Cinnamon, Cafe’… we have it all and multiple options to choose from. The best would be Don Julio, with its clean, smooth taste, even non experienced tequila drinkers can’t deny how nicely DJ goes down.
Tell us about your Sangria.
We make our red and white Sangria in house! So it’s always fresh, delicious and never too sweet! We offer pitchers of sangria, need I say more?
Finally, what would you say to anyone who has never been to Ranchero cantina?
With all I said, how have you NOT been to ranchero yet?? Come on down, bring the family, bring your date, bring your friends, whatever you’re feeling, we’re the perfect spot for you!
