El Ranchito resides in a building reserved for childhood memories of birthday parties and free personal pans earned through the Book It program. Located at 2800 SW Fairlawn in the old Pizza Hut, the Mexican restaurant’s ambiance is lack luster, albeit they have built a nice patio due south. The juxtaposition to the aesthetics, and perhaps mucho importanta, is the comida. Notably, a dish featured on the menu cover, the Alambre, which consist of bacon, chorizo, steak, cheese and sliced avocados heaped onto four flour tortillas. Sounds simple enough, but it’s packed with so much flavor.
