We've eaten numerous times here and have never had a negative experience! Margaritas are very good. Menu is huge as are the portions. Food is nicely seasoned and the plate presentation has always been lovely. Plenty to eat and the waitstaff is always attentive...even when it's busy...and Mi Ranchito does get busy. We'll definitely be returning.

My group arrived around 2:30pm on New Year's Eve, and the place was only maybe half full. We walked in and NO ONE greeted us and there were no signs stating to wait to be seated or whatnot. I had to flag down a busboy to ask to be seated. The waitress was pleasant and checked on us enough and... More

I had intended on just getting a snack before going to an early evening meeting, but an order of three tacos felt more like a meal. There was plenty of hamburger, but not much in the way of seasoning. Also, the taco drop grease when lifted to eat. I was full when I left, just not sure I felt satisfied.... More

My mil lives near here so have frequented before but not in while. Has gone downhill. Was SUPER crowded cuz not much around there, but food was just swimming in what tasted like canned enchilada sauce = very acidic and overwhelming. Rice was bland. Chips were not warm and kind of stale. Waiter nice, but SLOW and forgetful! Do NOT... More

Nice small town restaurant. Very nice and very cordial host. First time here so i had chicken tacos. Very tasty. The diners with me had chimaghanga's which they said were great. Chips and salsa very good too. Food was not as hot as I like it but all in all a nice place.

When we want their favorite food this is where we go. My favorite is the steak BotanTapatia. I've never had this at any other Mexican restaurant. It is like a quesadilla but better. The margaritas are awesome and reasonably priced. We go here at least once a month and we are regulars. The staff is awesome they always greet us... More
