Never going back to this restaurant, it's a tragedy. Sad to say but especially if you are HISPANIC don't expect much. This restaurant tends to treat white Americans better than their own people. Their customer service is horrible. They make you wait very long before...More

We realised this restaurant was probably going to be good when we drove up and found a full car park. We split a meal between us and were both full at the end (4 taquitos with rice and beans). Absolutely delicious, and excellent service.

The food was great from chips and salsa to the main course my wife and I had. May not look like much but the food is great! Service was a little slow but the food is worth it!

Consistent is the one word I'd use to describe Mi Ranchito. While it's nothing to rave about, after eating here for more than twenty years, nothing has changed! Fast service, good chips and salsa, lots of cheese, large menu, big servings. Prices are decent.

Six of us ate here Sunday night around 6pm. The place was half full and we were seated right away. Our server Jorge gave several of us recommendations which all turned out excellent. We had a variety of burritos (huge); fajita salad, unusually good; gulf...More

Busy, popular place! Chips and salsa were good and fresh. Good menu selection. Big enough portions that you can be satisfied eating half and taking home the rest for lunch the following day. Service was good. The only disappointing thing was that they only had...More

For many years Mi Ranchito has been a stalwart venue in the local Mexican Food category. In the past I've often considered it routine -- the kind of Mexican restaurant where you know you're going to get a good meal, chomp on some chips and...More

It all started in the kitchen when the Armenta family came to Utah from Guanajuato, Mexico. Mama brought with her the wonderful recipes that have been in the family for generations. A blend of secret ingredients, strict attention to freshness and quality have been the foundation of the tradition of good cooking you will find at Mi Ranchito. It was Papa, though, who had the idea to involve the whole family and create a truly special restaurant. The entire family pitched in and helped in the first Mi Ranchito when it opened in Orem, Utah back in 1983. Manuel and Senorina Armenta eventually shared the responsibility of running Mi Ranchito with their sons and daughters. Each restaurant is under the personal care of a family member, guaranteeing that the family recipes are followed very closely. Today Mi Ranchito it is still a family business; family owned, family operated and family loved.
