Different menu from El Rancho Grande in Kendall but the food was good, tasty and prepared as described. Ordered a margarita special which my husband did not like at all and they quickly changed it for him. Portions are good size.

The welcome from the staff was amazing. The service was excellent, everyone was very polite and friendly, the best service I’ve seen in a while. The food was good, but think that paying just under $100 for two for a main, three drinks and a guacamole including tip is very excessive for what you are getting. The guacamole was out of this world, I have to say!! Still, overpriced for what it is.

Excellent tasting food. Fast service. A little pricey for what you get. The kids meals had more food than our meals. Friendly waiter.

Our first visit but not our last. We dropped in for a quick bite. The tortilla soup was delicious - lots of flavour and texture. The quesadilla was simple and tasty - just what I was hoping for. And my husbands burrito was moist and flavourful. Our server was attentive and friendly. A great find in our neighbourhood.

The staff was friendly but the food lacked passion. The drinks and guac were bland and watered down. The mains were presented in an aesthetically pleasing way but tasted old and reheated. The server was kind enough to offer an exchange or refund on the mains. We went the refund route because it seemed the cook could not reach the spice rack or the fridge with fresh meat. I’ve found more flavor in a $10 bowl of chipotle which is scary because had we stayed, this meal would’ve ended up around $100. Overall, this is the lazy man’s Mexican food. If you’re not lazy, travel to somewhere a little further where the food is either much cheaper, or much much tastier.

Noisy... but not so much you can’t have a conversation. Food was good and the service was too. Give it a try if you’re in the neighborhood!
