Avila's El Ranchito is legendary, authentic Mexican cooking at its best. It is still a family business, family owned, family operated and family loved. Mama and Papa eventually shared the responsibility of running El Ranchito with their children and now their grandchildren. Each restaurant is under the personal care of a family member, guaranteeing the reputation the family has earned for treating the customers "like part of the family."

Helping to complete the family's recipe of success is the personal atmosphere and warm welcome from familiar employees at each of the restaurants. Many employees such as food servers, managers and kitchen help, have been working for the family for decades. Thank you, long-time employees, for your loyalty and commitment to the Avila family! You're very valuable and important to El Ranchito. Equally important are you, the customers, who have been coming to El Ranchito since it opened. Some of you have met here, fallen in love, married and are now bringing your children. Thank you for your loyalty.
