About Us

a beautiful story of success!

Leaving his family behind to pursue survival, Pablo Aguirre, came to the US in the '80s. Later on and after working in the field of dreams (strawberries fields of California), moved up north with his family to Virginia. With limited savings opened the first Restaurant, El Puerto (the Port) named after his Hometown El Puerto of Santa Catarina, Jalisco Mexico. El Puerto opened the first of many Restaurants in the city of Blacksburg VA in 1990.
Following the success of his Father and Mother Elisa Lopez and older brothers, Rogelio Aguirre, only 21 years old at the time, opened another El Puerto in Waynesboro in 1999, within days the place was already showing signs of great success. 

Following the family recipes, the freshest ingredients, great work and tradition, the expansion continues, throughout Virginia, with El Gran Puerto, Stuart Draft, Rancho Viejo, Luray and now Rancho Nuevo in Front Royal Virginia. 

Bringing to your plate the result of many years of flavor, experience and the tradition of a taste that so many describe as the best of Shenandoah Valley, its now close to you and available to travelers from around the world.  
Rancho Nuevo Mexican Grill and Cantina, "a quick stop at Mexican Tradition anticipated great success and memories to be share for years to come.
