Mission, Vision, Values

At El Ranchero our goal is to provide a colorful homey atmosphere that you find in Mexican pueblos. There is a story behind every painting and piece of decor in the restaurant. Mr. Haro purchased most of these items from different regions of Mexico that he has visited. 

We strive to provide the best authentic Mexican food in Southern California. We enjoy helping our community with fundraisers and always welcome new guests. El Ranchero looks forward to serving our guests for many more years to come. 



At El Ranchero our aim is to provide quality service to every guest. Whether it be a small party joining us for dinner or a large private party in our banquet room, we will make sure you have a more than pleasant dining experience.  


El Ranchero Mexican Food & Margaritas in Claremont, California opened its doors in June 1996 offering fine authentic Mexican cuisine and margaritas. We offer a variety of dishes from different regions of Mexico including Zacatecas (where the owner and Executive Chef Jose Haro was born). Every dish is prepared fresh daily by our chefs who use only the finest ingredients. 

Known as The House of the Margaritas, we offer numerous flavors of tasty margaritas including strawberry, mango, raspberry, peach, banana, traditional and more.
