I tried many Mexican restaurants in Metro East area and St. Louis, this is the best, hands down. No argue about that. Their food is very authentic and the beef fajita is the best. The meat is well marinated and the sides are just perfect. Everytime we dine here, it reminds my husband about his teenage years when he worked... More

The food is very authentic. The family is from Mexico and they serve great food. If you like Mexican food, you surely enjoy Ramon's. The Margeritas are excellent too.

Great authentic Mexican food. The pork dishes and the refried beans are incredible. Avoid the chile rellenos though, over battered and a total grease bomb. Great margaritas.

I went there about a couple years ago with my friend and we arrived there a half hour before close. The manager/owner insisted we stayed. We were going to leave because we didn't want to impose on short notice. Anyway the young waitress who served us was I would rate a 1 or 2. The salsa was very runny. The... More

Business often takes me to the Collinsville/St Louis area, and I was directed to Ramon's by a State Trooper. I've had friends that traveled to Mexico tell me that this was as good as it gets without leaving the country. They were right. I've been there about 6 times in the last 3 years, never a bad meal or bad... More

My family has always loved eating at Ramons, and never had a bad experience there. The food tastes more authentic than many of these other newer Mexican restaurants that seem to have popped up all over. The margaritas are excellent, as well.

Nasty, non-authentic, pricey salt laden. Don't waste your time with this place. Only the locals keep it afloat, and only because they don't know what good Mexican food is.
