Our go to spot for low key Mexican food. Chill atmosphere that's family and couple friendly. Service is great. Our food always comes fast, is hot, and tastes great.

These guys have the best tamales on my side of town and I always order them. One time I got something with chorizo and it was extremely burnt, but other than that these guys have been perfect.

To me and my man this place is top notch. Such a friendly staff and excellent food. If there was a rating higher than 5 stars Del Ranchos would get it. Give them a try, I’m sure you’re gonna like it.

We love this restaurant. The food is fresh and tasty. The menu has variety, too. We just had enchiladas and shrimp and rice, and both dishes were very good.

Del Rancho is one of my favorite North Durham restaurants, hands down. I've eaten there a number of times over the years, and they never disappoint. I love their chimichangas, and when I can dare myself to try something new, it is always amazing! Try them out, and you're sure to love them as much as I do!

We love Del Rancho! My kids are gluten free and they are always happy to accommodate their allergies. They always remember us when we go there and everyone is super friendly. It also helps that the food is delicious and my kids say it’s the “best Mexican food ever!”

The best of the best. A little gem, hidden away, in this shopping center. Just Good Food. That simple. Great taste in their chicken dishes and beef (tacos) Yeah, I'm saying it, done restaurants over season their ground beef and some places under-season and burn their ground beef. (or prep it on a burned griddle???) Either way, the basic menu items are prepared, with GREATNESS, here. I'm making my way around the menu as I'm in the area to eat. But so far, all my meals have been prepared and cooked with good-caring-love. I love this place. Veggies and side items seem to be fresh, also.

The staff makes this place the best restaurant in Durham. To top it off their food is incredible and consistently amazing. Never eaten a bad thing here, in over a decade of weekly visits.

The food was good, but it was fifteen minutes late even though I ordered well in advance. Also, one of the dishes was cold, and no one in the restaurant was wearing masks. I enjoy Del Rancho's food and convenient location, but will reluctantly need to find another place for takeout.

I order all the time! Great food! Fast friendly delivery! Never had anything bad. If you want consistently delicious food, this is your place! You won’t be disappointed

About to destroy this take-out! The Savior of North Durham when it comes to those looking to satiate their craving for consistently-delicious Mexican food! Want to get a buzz without leaving your home? Have a mango margarita delivered to your house. Extremely fair portions for the price. Also -- you can tell the quality of a Mexican restaurant by the quality of their chips & salsa -- and boy will the bar get set high for you after you try theirs (which always come with a side of delectable, savory-sweet white cheese sauce in addition to the salsa). Very personable staff, too. I always prefer a more "home-cooked," not-withholding-the-spice flare to Mexican fare -- these guys deliver that in droves. Only difference is that they aren't hit-or-miss like a lot of other hole-in-the-wall places -- they're running a fully professional, volume-based business, but instead of watering things down like so many other Tex-Mex style restaurants, they're providing you with food that tastes like it was prepared in your kitchen by an extremely talented Mexican chef.

Nice out door dining. Excellent enchiladas with a red sauce and the horchata had a tasty cinnamon flavor. Friendly and helpful waiter. Liked the spicy salsa dip too.

Just got take-out for our son's 28th birthday lunch, food was fresh and delicious. The homemade guacamole was chunky and really good. I'm vegan so had asked for no cheese and the vegetables on my burrito were grilled perfectly and it was great with the rice. We're new to the area so it was our first time at Del Rancho, looking forward to returning to check out their margaritas :)

Love this place. We order from them on a regular basis, the food and service are always amazing. They offer spicy food and not spicy, which is the best when ordering for varied tastes.

Love Del Rancho! The location is unassuming, but I promise it's worth a trip. It is my husband's and my go-to for a late night to-go meal, and our weightlifting group's choice for ladies night! Food is always solid, portions generous. Margaritas are on point; not too much mix, but not raw tequila. And the staff there are second to none; friendly, prompt, and just all around fantastic.

We order from here quite frequently and it is always just perfect! We have it delivered and it’s always fast, the food is packaged very nicely and can’t spill out into the bag. Always so friendly! I’ve tried many of the entrees, tacos, burritos and nachos and everything is always so good. The portion size is large which isn’t usually the case at most places these days. You just can’t beat the service or the food - it’s my only go to restaurant for Mexican food!

The food here is fantastic. But the people are even better. Not only helpful and friendly but just good honest people. If you are hungry, thirsty (love the large Dos Equis!) and/or having a bad day, stop her to remind yourself that the world can be a pretty good place.

I love this place!! I haven’t had everything on the menu, but I eat here or order takeout frequently enough that I’ve had most things. It’s delicious. The service is always great and the wait time is always just right. I really appreciate how they pivoted so quickly and efficiently at the onset of the pandemic and kept the great eats flowing!!

We have gotten take from here several times since the pandemic hit and the food has been amazing! The Burrito supreme is big enough to eat for two meals. Very clean and following social distancing restrictions. Highly recommend.

Awesome food, super fast delivery with low fees straight from their website. Have had several dishes and sides, all of which have been amazing! I'll be back in their restaurant post-lockdown for a giant beer, but until their online delivery is the next best thing!

Tasty menu items, good value, great service! The burritos are particularly filling, and both kinds of queso are delicious (and the chorizo adds a bit of a kick).

Del Rancho is a staple in our household. I'm a vegetarian so it's always hard to find food I love but the veggie combos are amazing, and they offer a lot of options. Everything is flavorful, and well put together. This is my favorite Mexican restaurant. As an added bonus the delivery is quick. :)
