I can easily say that this is my favorite eatery in a very large area! A friend and I eat here at least two times a week, whether for lunch or for supper, and even if she isn't able to go with me, I still could eat there three times a week. I had to get her to help steer... More

One of our favorite places to go for a fun lunch. Get here about once each month. Love to sit out on the patio around the fountain in the summertime. Reasonably priced, quick service, great Mexican food. Only drawback is the noise of trains going by, as it sits next to the tracks.

We were very pleased with the food, service, prices and atmosphere. Our waiter was very good! It appeared that many other diners were happy too. The place was packed but it didn't feel crowded, and service was fast but not rushed.

Just love the food at Rancho. It's always hot and a lot of it. The staff is good with checking back with you to see if you food is good. Sometimes it's hard to understand what they say when they ask a question. I do find it offensive when you are standing there and they are speaking Spanish between them.... More

We enjoyed our visit to Rancho Grand on a Sunday right before noon. We had a 10 minute wait due to a basketball team in the back room but the food made it worth it. The chips and salsa were pretty good. The white cheese and guacamole was great. Everyone agreed the main course was very good! The service is... More

I have always enjoyed this place. Until recent visits. A friend and I went in before a movie and service was bad the worst I have ever seen that was until I was talked in to going back a few months later. 4 of us went in for drinks and a couple of us wanted food. Food was brought out... More

My colon will never forgive me for eating here. Stopped for lunch, had three waiters acknowledge me from the booth they were sitting in. Got a table after about 5 minutes of standing there. Should have used that five minutes to run, away. Ate there going on 4 days ago, still paying for it.

Thank Tony S
