We have been dining at Ramon's in Collinsville since the early 1970's In recent years the quality has not been as good as before. Everything is an "up charge," which I understand, but requesting extra sauce when there is barely any sauce on the dish should not be an up charge. The enchiladas are great, but now the mole or...

I have traveled to Mexico many times and this restaurant is close to authentic food and drink. The décor and the building also authentic, which makes it look some what run down compared to most restaurants in the area. The house keeping needs to be more authentic, the place is not as clean as establishments in Mexico.

Ramon's has been in business 30+ years and has amazing Mexican cuisine. Friendly atmosphere, good food, lots of fun. You won't be sorry you went there.

Having enjoyed Ramon's for many years, I ate to give them a negative review but the quality has been slipping for quite a while. Once the first choice for Mexican fare in the metro-east Ramon's has lost their edge. They have a great mole sauce but if you want more than a hint of it, they will charge extra. With... More

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
