We always get a good Mexican dinner at Mi Rancho, and it reminds us of the food we used to get in El Paso when we lived there. The fajitas are delicious.

After many years of driving past this restaurant we finally went in. The food was very good, fresh and well prepared. The salsa they place on the table is really good, and plenty of warm tortilla chips. Serving portions are not large compared to most other Tex Mex places, but enough food to fill you up! Service is very good,... More

Having lived in Texas for several years my wife and I got used to excellent Mexican and Tex Mex food. We tried this with great anticipation and while it was not bad it was not exlempary either. Everyting was somewaht bland and the flavors blended together. Mexican does not have to hard, fancy, or expensive- so not sure how this... More

I've eaten here multiple times (date nights, happy hours, and large groups) and never been disappointed. The food is great. The service is always spectacular. The mini margarita pitchers are fun! It's not an inexpensive restaurant but the prices are reasonable for the service and quality of the food.

I'm a Texas native, and one of the most difficult parts of living in the Washington DC area is the pronounced lack of good Tex Mex. Thank goodness for Mi Rancho - simple, honest, down-to-earth good tex mex at reasonable prices and a great atmosphere.

This is my go-to spot in G-town. It helps that I live nearby but I think I'd rather eat here than someplace in Rio. Really good margaritas, steak and fish. Chips and salsa very good as well.

We've been eating here for over 10 years and are never disappointed in the food. It is a good family place and margaritas are good too. This past visit, we were very disappointed in the service. I had to ask twice to get someone to refill our waters and then again to get our check. We would have bought more... More

I stopped by this restaurant for dinner tonight, and was extremely dissatisfied. The salsa was not tasty. My girl friend and I ordered two different chimi's. One was chicken & Cheese, other one was beef & cheese. They both were very bland, the mexican rice was bland too. The portions were pretty small and the prices were high for what... More

I was looking at the other reviews for Mi Rancho Germantown, and I was very surprised to see some of them. We lived in Germantown for years and it was one of our favorite restaurants for Mexican food, and now that we live outside of the area, we stop in there every time we're passing down the I270 corridor.

I was out for the day with my mom sister and aunt. We decided to stop here for lunch. This was not my choice to stop here as I have been here before and was not impressed. The margeritas were weak and have to much sour mix. The chips and salsa were something you could get from a grocery store... More
