My daughters and I had supper here. The food was ok, my tacos were warm and not hot. I would have given a better rating if my food was hot.

Ate here a few times. The margaritas are very strong, so know you want to have some alcohol in your drink before you buy. Queso is good, atmosphere is a little bright but nice in the winter time. If you do go during the summer...More

We stopped at Rancho Grande and had a fantastic Mexican food in a quaint and colorful atmosphere. The service was prompt and the grilled chicken tacos and steak burritos were wonderfully seasoned. Excellent prices for the amount of food!

The hotel recommended this restaurant. I had the Bistec con camaron. The steak was tasty and tender. The shrimp were plentiful and a perfect compliment to the steak. A great tasting meal and an even better value.
