Can’t seem to find any Mexican food that lives up to your standards? Look no further than Taqueria el Ranchero, a hot spot for Mexican cuisine in Central Oahu. HI Now host Jobeth Devera is at the restaurant’s bar with bartender Sheila Jibaja to get a taste of some of its most popular drinks.

First on the list? The Michelada, a cocktail made with a Mexican beer that’s similar to a Bloody Mary. “We mix in our housemade Michelada mix,” explains Jibaja. “We zest in our own fruits.”

And, of course, you can’t have a Mexican taqueria without a margarita! “We have our classic lime margarita, which is fabulous, and we do make our sour in-house,” Jibaja says. “Something that you can find here that you cannot find many other places is our Agua Fresca Margarita.” The cocktail is made using different flavors of fresh juices made in the restaurant’s kitchen. One of the more popular flavors? Watermelon! Others include strawberry, pineapple, and Jamaica (Hibiscus).

Taqueria el Ranchero has an array of Mexican beers, including Victoria, Bohemia, Carta Blanca, Modelo, Sol, and Tecate to name a few.

While every night is a party at the restaurant, you can hang out on Wednesday nights and sing some karaoke! Or check out the scene on Fridays during Paisa Night with Mexican music and a DJ. Turn up the heat on Saturdays during Salsa Night when part of the restaurant is turned into a dance floor!

So check out Taqueria el Ranchero for happy hour daily from 2 – 7 p.m. and get deals on draft beers, pitcher specials, well drinks, and of course, its fabulous margaritas!
