It all started in the kitchen many years ago. Mama brought with her recipes that have been in her family for generations, paying strict attention to freshness and quality.
It was Papa, though, who had the idea to involve the whole family and create a truly special restaurant. The entire Avila family pitched in and help at the first El Ranchito when it opened in Huntington Park in 1966.
Helping to complete the family’s recipe of success is the personal atmosphere and warm welcome from familiar employees who have been working for the family for decades. Equally important are you, the customers, who have been coming to Avila’s 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.
