About Us

As time goes by, one thing has become more and more clear – Americans love Mexican food. We are not talking about the quick fix fast food variety, but the real deal, sit down and eat chips-n-salsa restaurant. Though there are a wide variety of Mexican restaurants, from the quesadillas at sports bars to the heavily American influenced Tex-Mex establishments, what we really crave is the authentic flavor of food prepared in the traditional Mexican style.

“El sabor que tu quieres” says it best: The flavor you crave. This simple, eloquent phrase is how the Avilas, owners of El Rancho Mexican Restaurant, describe the passion that we have for their delicious food. This Detroit culinary landmark opened in 1983 with one goal in mind, to bring us the best, most original flavors from their home in Mexico, San Louis Potosi.
