This place has the worst salsa. Simply flavorless. Has no texture and runny like it was mixed with water. Asked the waiter if there was any other type of salsa and he said there was a hotter salsa which I declined. Cannot believe this was served. Ordered a low carb burrito (no tortilla). It looked great but was again flavorless.... More

Nothing spectacular. Service was decent but the food was just ok. It seemed busy but I think most people were just drinking. Might give it another go.

Outstanding food and service. Great drinks and a friendly atmosphere. It's my family's favorite Mexican restaurant and an every Friday night event for the whole neighborhood

It is our go to place. Very good food. Golden cheese dip with great have to be home made chips. I don't think chips this big could be anything else. Even when you order a single enchilada they can fill you up. Seemingly endless chips and sauce. Plus excellent mixed drinks plus screens in every room. Plus good friendly service... More

Americanized Mexican food. Our kids enjoy the chips and salsa. The food appeals to many and you will leave full. My personal preference is for less cheese and more seasoning. Place is very busy and the staff is running full speed. It seemed to be difficult for them to keep up. Our drinks came after the meal. This is not... More

I love their low carb burrito without a tortilla. House margaritas are potent! Service was good, and I like their chips.

I love Rancho Grande Cantina. They have friendly attentive staff. Authentic Mexican food at responsible prices, and it is always served hot and fast. They have great specials everyday, excellent lunch specials, and their margarita is delicious too!

We are occasional diners (often for takeout) of this restaurant. It's your typical midwest Mexican restaurant. Offers a good value for your money.

Rancho Grande is at it's best on Taco Tuesday. Buy one beef taco, get one free. While the aren't fancy, the are filling. I used the dip from the tortilla chips to add a little zip. We order 6 tacos, three and three for free. We had endless chips and salsa and one drink. The bill was $8.61. Can't beat... More

They continuously refill the salsa and bring more chips. They did not have a hot salsa or sauce on the table but my boyfriend who usually likes it hot didn't say anything so maybe they did have it on request. I had the Chef's special salad and he had the burrito dinner. We were both quite satisfied. Finished off the... More
