Celebrate Cince De Mayo with take out from Taqueria El Ranchero

It's not Cinco De Mayo without a taco platter

Celebrate Cinco De Mayo from home with take out from Taqueria El Ranchero! HI Now hosts Kanoe Gibson and Kainoa Carlson are in the kitchen trying out some dishes from the Wahiawa restaurant, and they’re whipping up some Li Hing Pineapple Margaritas to go with it.

Right now, Taqueria El Ranchero is offering take out, and the restaurant is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. – 10 p.m. for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Taqueria El Ranchero offers some delicious authentic Mexican food. Add the beef fajitas to your must-try list! The restaurant even offers a taco platter that comes with seven types of meats to choose from (chorizo, chicken, beef tongue, tripe, carnitas, al pastor, and carne asada).
