I ate at Mi Ranchito on a recent trip to Denton. You know you're in for authentic Tex Mex when a bowl of beans is brought to the table along with the usual chips and salsas. Excellent, exceedingly efficient, waitstaff and a diverse menu of traditional favorites. The sour cream and red enchilada sauces were a hit with the West... More

I have traveled extensively throughout Mexico for the past five years but guess what, there is basically no Tex-Mex in Mexico - so there you go. I do have to admit otherwise that still I may be one of the most discerning of the quality of Tex-Mex, while respecting my own opinion like no one else's. With this tout of... More

It's ok, nothing to rave about. Chile con queso was bland. They used taco shells for the tacos (a no no in authentic Mexican food). They don't serve regular Margaitas only a limearita which was frozen (tasted like beer). The waitress was very nice and attentive. The restaurant appeared clean and typical Mexican decorated. Our bill was $50 for 3... More

My family just ate a delicious meal at Mi Ranchito...we loved it! The salsa was tasty and spicy, and the complementary small bowl (1/4 cup) of beans was delicious ( I could have made a meal on them alone). I ordered the #1 and was not disappointed...they readily accommodated my request to substitute a chicken enchilada for the cheese enchalida.... More

It's a very nice small restaurant in Denton, the staff is nice and attentive, the food is very good and it has very good prices as well. Beef fajitas are very nice, Carne asada (steak) is huge and good. Absolutely recommended. It should only look a bit better, and the only reason I don't give 5 to this place is... More

This place comes straight at you with solid and tasty Tex-Mex food. The only frill in this little pay-at-the-register joint is the tiny complementary serving of borracho beans. The tacos and enchiladas are very good. They offer several bottled Mexican beers (and sodas) in addition to domestic brands. The salsa is spicy. Service is unsophisticated but attentive. It is usually... More

Chips and salsa were great as well as the little bowl of beans. The chorizo queso was really good but the fajitas were just ok.

Love this little hole in the wall Mexican place. Great food and authentic. It is definitely the best Denton has for great Mexican food. It's like a secret that only the locals know.
