Orange

Orange – Open for Indoor & Outdoor Dining and Takeout.

Established in 2011. In 1966 Salvador & Margarita Avila opened their first restaurant in Huntington Park serving Mamá Avila’s authentic family recipes from Guanajuato, Mexico that she has passed down from generation to generation. Over the years, Avila’s El Ranchito has grown to 13 locations in Los Angeles and Orange County. Each restaurant is under the personal care of a family member, guaranteeing the reputation the family has earned for treating our customers like part of the family.

The Orange location is owned and operated by 3rd generation, Marcus Avila. The restaurant is famous for its historic building, once a stunning church, and still has the original hardwood floors, with stained glass windows and high ceilings. The Cantina is a great spot for watching your favorite sports team while enjoying Happy Hour or Taco Tuesday specials. We look forward to serving you!
