Casa Ranchero Review
The food and service at Casa Ranchero is enjoyable. The waiters were attentive, knew the menu, and made good recommendations. Husband and wife Claire and Lonie Shepard are the owners of Casa Ranchero, formerly this couple had experience in the world of catering. “For Casa Ranchero, we envision families, couples and friends gathering for a fun, relaxed social dining experience. They come across a vibrant authentic Mexican restaurant and cantina with adobe characteristics. The smell of the fresh tortillas cooked to order, stimulate the senses. Start off your evening with a hand shaken ice cold margarita, with dozens of tequilas to choose from, paired with complimentary homemade chips and fresh salsa.”
1. Check Casa Ranchero’s social media for events and specials.
2. The restaurant is located in a shopping center with ample parking.
3. Sit outside on the patio next to the fountain. At night the fire ring around the fountain is ignited, making for a great scene.
4. Go at the start of happy hour or Taco Tuesday and order the homemade chips and guacamole, reasonably priced. (*Often going at the peak times to restaurants you get ignored or the food is not up to standard. Avoid the busiest of times anywhere.) The Happy Hour at Casa Ranchero is more adult and the menu items are more elevated than their Taco Tuesday.
5. Additionally, order both the regular and spicy salsas for the chips.
7. I enjoyed the Suizas [swee-sah; meaning Swiss style in Spanish] made with Rotisserie Chicken and Cheese Topped with Tomatillo Sauce, Sour Cream (*I skipped on the sour cream. They were happy to leave it off.), and Pico de Gallo (a fresh salsa made with chopped tomato, onion, and chili peppers).
