Such good, authentic, fresh Mexican food. The owner even tolerates my attempts at using my high school Spanish with good humor. This is our go-to place for Mexican food.

First of all, there is about every possible menu selection you can think of from individual meals to combinations, etc. I had a burrito which was great and my wife had guacamole which was also very good. The chips and salsa are a fresh dish you start with and the chips are unsalted which is perfect since the salsa is... More

We've been eating at Rancho Grande for several years, since they opened. Every meal I've had there has been excellent. I especially like the Chili Verde and the carnitas enchiladas, but so many different dishes to try and all have been good. Good value too, as you get a lot of food and have leftovers to eat the next day.... More

This is the BEST Mexican restaurant. The fajitas are awesome, but for a real authentic dish...the Pollo Karley is EXCELLENT! Staff is very friendly. Casual dining with fun atmosphere.

We had dinner here. I have given up finding great Mexican food other than in the southwest. The food here was ok. Plates were very hot but the food was room temperature. We were never checked on after our food was delivered. Only redeeming point was the margaritas were very good. I would try somewhere else next time.

A hostess seated us promptly. Another lady came and took our order. Our food was served by a male server. Our original waitress never came back to serve us although she was still working. I had a combination plate and my food was good. However, my wife's Taco Salad was watery in the bottom of the shell, which made the... More

Well, this seems to be a place people love or hate! We are in the middle and rate it as "average Mexican food". I disagree with the reviews who label this as "authentic" (I've been to Mexico many times. We've had 5-6 meals here over the last several years. Nothing was bad. The Molcajete is their best dish in our... More
