El Ranchito is at the top of the city’s Tex-Mex ecosystem and gives visitors the genuine Southern hospitality of a Mexican kitchen. It’s the type of casual, down-to-earth spot that you can show up to in sweatpants, and yes, you will see a mariachi band play no matter what day you show up. There are a ton of Tex-Mex options in Oak Cliff, but El Ranchito’s fajitas, mole, and pechuga are big highlights.
