Rancho Relaxo returns to original location on College
Ever since Little Italy fixture Rancho Relaxo at 300 College closed down, the space seems to have had a bit of an identity crisis.
For years the spot operated as a Mexican bar and restaurant with classic margaritas and cheap greasy food downstairs, and a cramped but lively music venue upstairs. In its absence, the space has played host to various concepts upstairs and down.
Upstairs the place became the uncreatively named 300 Club, basically a whitewashed version of the previous stucco- and brick-awning-filled venue with a spotty schedule.
Meanwhile, across town in the Junction Triangle, the Rancho Relaxo name was being rebranded as Rancho Relaxo to Go, serving tacos, quesadillas and burritos out of a corner spot on Dupont. They've also been operating their own food truck.
Theyâre now bringing it full circle and injecting that new concept into the old ground floor Rancho space, serving the same Mexican fare as the Junction Triangle location. According to staff slinging tacos there, upstairs will become a new club called Stop, Drop and Roll.
