With accordance with new orders from the governor of Georgia, effective on 06-16-2020 we will be opening our full dining room. For the health of our guest and employees we ask that anyone not feeling well, do not come into our dining room and instead use our take-out or delivery with door dash.
May 15th, 2020, | Dine-in & operation Update
We are happy to announce that we have opened our dining room for table service. We will be complying with the health department's recommendations and will be limiting the number of tables available. We kindly ask that you respect or staff and other patrons and if you are not feeling well please use our curbside ordering and pick up.
Due to fluctuations in market costs, we have had to change our pricing to maintain the portions sizes or our meals. These changes are only temporary and hope that will not have to continue for too long.
Thank you to our staff and all our Patrons for your support.
May 2nd, 2020 |Cinco De Mayo UPDATE
Cinco de Mayo is here again and as much as we would love to have everyone out partying with us but due to the current COVID-19 situation we will not be opening our dining room due to the inability to source Protective Supplies for the health of our employees and our patrons. The health of our employees and community is of utmost importance and we will only be serving Take out and Delivery for the time being. We would, however, like to help get your Cinco de Mayo party going with our party packs, Family Meals along with our regular menu. See the Discounts and Specials page for more information for Fiesta Time with El Ranchito in the comfort of your own home.
April 22nd, 2020 |Dining Room Update
After the announcement from Governor Brian Kemp to reopen certain businesses, El Ranchito has decided to keep dine-in service temporarily closed and will serve only take-out, curbside, and delivery services. Our healthcare officials and the CDC’s recommendation to keep COVID-19 guidelines during these uncertain times has motivated us to continue pushing forward with this fight and focus on practicing good health for us and our entire community. We wish to truly thank you for your support during these trying times.
This decision was not taken lightly. In twenty years we have seen so many of our customers live and grow in West Georgia. Some of our own staff members were children when they first dined with us. We will not unnecessarily risk the safety of our community, our customers, and our families.
It’s has been a challenging time but we have taken this challenge head-on with our customers by expanding our food delivery/takeout/curbside operations. Making the best of our downtime we have also begun renovations in preparations of re-opening dine-in service. We look forward to doing more and we appreciate any and all feedback. With your help and patronage, it has been heartening to see how we all can adapt to this situation.
We are excited to reopen in the future to invite our customers, friends, and family back to enjoy great food and great company.
Stay safe and stay clean
El Ranchito Familia
