Outdoor eating inside

A funky place with a large, open circular firepit in the center of a large barnlike room. Simple table & chairs with oilcloths on tables. Kind of homey. Great food, especially the enchiladas.

The first time we spent the night in Ramona (up to see a show) we stopped in for drinks and appetizers. What a disappointment. The food is bland and generic Mex. No wine selection to speak of (cheap brand). Beer selection ok, nothing to rave about. The atmosphere is great though (esp in cold weather) with a huge firepit/fireplace in... More

This is the place! Winter time finds you enjoying the warmth of the huge wood burning raised firepit. The shredded beef tacos, mini super tostadas, chips and salsa are our fav. Grandma, daughters, granddaughters and nieces will ensure you have a good meal by checking in on your enjoyment of the food and to refresh your drinks, salsa and chips.

This is a family owned restaurant with a huge fire pit in the center for heat on cold rainy days. We enjoy their great food for lunch or for supper. It's difficult to get a table on Friday nights!

We ate here on Friday night with friends. Too warm for the large firepit to be on. This is a very large quantset hut with miscellaneous tables, oil cloth tableclothes, but great food, casual great for kids. We got there at 5:00 it was filling up by 6:00. i understand it is very crowded later in the evening.

This is homemade Mexican food at it's best! Retrofitted in a space previously used as a car dealership and no doubt many other uses prior to that (it is no less than 100 yrs old). The atmosphere is unique as it gets, and the food is just a plus.

Good Mexican food with good service. But no margaritas. Go in the cool winter months to enjoy the giant fire pit in the middle of the room

Owned and operated by the same family for well over 20 years, El Michoacan has continually provided good Mexican food for Ramona. It is situated in a large room that is impossible to decorate. Sometimes drafty, but in the winter a great roaring fire in the middle of the room adds that something something that may be atmosphere. Good place... More

Big fire pit in the center of a two story room. Old redwood walls stretching to the roof makes for agreat atmosphere. The owner's are very nice and the service friendly. Banquet tables are mixed in with smaller tables - most with plastic school chairs. Very fun. The food is hearty and good. Very "homemade". Worth a stop just to... More
