The parking lot was full and the place was packed, so I was surprised that the food was average. But there is a LOT of it, so that may be part of the local appeal.

I ordered the mole chicken enchiladas to go over the phone, which was quick and easy. The food was ready in 10 minutes and the staff on pickup was very friendly. I was amazed at the portions! My enchiladas were big, filling the entire takeout...More

Mi Ranchito has been a favorite restaurant of mine since they opened many years ago. Their food is consistently great. I love their enchiladas and tacos! And their rice!!

This is an all time favorite. We try to make it here each time we come into town. Great food, and they don't scrimp on quantity.

Good food! great portions! As authentic as Tex Mex can be. I think the food is great, but it seems to cater to people that aren't familiar with real Mexican food. I lived in southern Arizona for two years and ate very traditional Mexican cuisine...More

Never going back to this restaurant, it's a tragedy. Sad to say but especially if you are HISPANIC don't expect much. This restaurant tends to treat white Americans better than their own people. Their customer service is horrible. They make you wait very long before...More

We realised this restaurant was probably going to be good when we drove up and found a full car park. We split a meal between us and were both full at the end (4 taquitos with rice and beans). Absolutely delicious, and excellent service.

The food was great from chips and salsa to the main course my wife and I had. May not look like much but the food is great! Service was a little slow but the food is worth it!

It all started in the kitchen when the Armenta family came to Utah from Guanajuato, Mexico. Mama brought with her the wonderful recipes that have been in the family for generations. A blend of secret ingredients, strict attention to freshness and quality have been the foundation of the tradition of good cooking you will find at Mi Ranchito. It was Papa, though, who had the idea to involve the whole family and create a truly special restaurant. The entire family pitched in and helped in the first Mi Ranchito when it opened in Orem, Utah back in 1983. Manuel and Senorina Armenta eventually shared the responsibility of running Mi Ranchito with their sons and daughters. Each restaurant is under the personal care of a family member, guaranteeing that the family recipes are followed very closely. Today Mi Ranchito it is still a family business; family owned, family operated and family loved.
