I came in here two days in the same week roughly about 3 to 4pm each time. The restaurant was not busy at all. I sat at the bar and got a big beer and ordered the Tacos al carbon. I asked for rice and no tomatillo sauce. One time it came with Refritos which were sent back to get... More

We dined on a Saturday afternoon around 4 and the place was completely empty. The food was great. I'd recommend the quesadilla fajitas. I would have given 5 stars but service needs a little more attention.

Everything was perfect! The mojito-perfect. I had he new "Margarita chicken". It's a margarita marinated chicken breast - perfectly cooked - grilled and covered with cheese and salsa plus rice and beans. So good. Can't go wrong here.

New location - next to Whole Foods. Nice airy environment. Lots of windows and natural light coming in - big outdoor seating area. Super fast and accommodating service. I would highly recommend this location for traditional Mexican food.

El Rancho Grande is our favorite "standby" restaurant. You can always get a table with little or no wait, the service is always good, and the food is consistent. Well, except for the salsa, which tends to vary on hotness, amount of cilantro, etc.

I don't like the taste of the kids burrito with rice. I don't want to compare with chipotle which is also a Mexican restaurant but this tastes different.

I was here with several friends. The food was great. I would have given this place a five, but I had asked for spicy salsa and had to ask three times to finally get it. Lots of choices and the food was delicious. I would recommend this place. Quite casual.

Nice experience, newly built restaurant. The food is good, the atmosphere is nice, they have a place for outdoor eating. The employees are all nice. Of course this is americanized mexican food, but it's still good.

El Rancho is our go-to in Dayton. They have many menu options and are reasonably priced. I personally love the enchiladas, especially the Tres Maria's but you can't go wrong on any you order. The staff is friendly and helpful. If you're craving Mexican fare this is the place to go.

I have to admit, my wife and I learned what excellent Americanized Mexican food can be during a trip to New Mexico and Arizona earlier this year. What passes for this food style in our area has been adjusted to mid-west taste buds and has become uninteresting - filling - but uninteresting. El Rancho Grande is one of the better... More
