El Ranchero

Burleigh Heads

Lap up the sun and delicious margaritas at this Burleigh Heads haven! El Ranchero's eccentric decor is sure to catch your eye - with a Route 66 silver bullet food truck and 'Virign Dolly's' Margarita bar (featuring a mural of the icon Dolly Parton). 

Sit back and enjoy their range of ice cold sangrias, margaritas and tasty Southwest American-style street food. Their glorious sundeck features seating for any size of party - it is also fun for the whole family. 

If you are looking for some entertainment, they also host 'Thursday social nights' which feature a different activity, such as a $15 wine and tarot card reading. On Sundays they feature their Sundecks event, where local DJs play tunes on the deck all day long. If the $15 margaritas don't get you up to dance, the music sure will!
