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

Never been here before, looking for good mexican food. This was a hopping place on a tuesday night...able to watch the Olympics and the royals while eating. Taco tuesday is buy one get one, and they were filled to the brim and crunchy! Good margaritas, and the hotter sauce was worth asking for. A friendly place to visit

We went on a Sunday afternoon not too busy but that can change quickly. We had a toddler and they paid special attention to him. The service was excellent. This is the place that we all love to go to because you can order one enchilada or one taco with a choice of cheeses for the chips. Or get a... More

I decided to order tacos for takeout on Tuesday. Boy, that was a mistake. First of all, when ordering the taco special, you're never informed that takeout doesn't receive the daily special. Secondly, when you get there, the entire bar area is packed with people waiting to be seated but it's in no particular manner. Most restaurants have some way... More

Our most recent visit was on Cinco de Mayo. We waited for an hour but it was worth it. Food is always delicious and very hot. Very impressed with the family giveaways for Cinco de Mayo ... candy, t shirts, and sombreros. We always love returning to Rancho. It was busy but our service was fast and friendly.

We went on a Monday night around 5. We were seated promptly and our orders were taken in due time. The place filled up fast and when we tasted the food, we knew why. The food arrived quickly and was very good. We also had fried ice cream for dessert and it was great. By the time we left around... More

The menu is classic American Mexican fare like enchilada, burrito, tacos, fajitas. The margaritas are tasty and potent enough you'll want a designated driver! It's our go to place when we want Mexican.
