El Ranchito in Corona Del Mar was one of the first Mexican restaurants to open in South Orange County.  This landmark opened its doors 50 years ago when Mama Avila brought the delicious recipes from Guanajuato, Mexico that had been in her family for generations.  Since then El Ranchito has grown to 13 locations all over the southland.

We joined their special gold anniversary and were treated with a celebration of delicious food, music and history.

As the night winded down, one of our fellow food bloggers had an interesting idea.  Wouldn’t it be cool to do a tour of all the 17 El Ranchitos?  That would be a fun and tasty adventure!
