Mi Rancho has all the makings of a terrific restaurant. The outdoor area is lovely, the atmosphere outside is wonderful, and it can accommodate small and large groups. The only problem: don't visit if you have ANY special needs or requests. Let me explain. I'm not a picky person by nature. And during college and immediately after college, I was... More

This place packs up quickly on the weekends. Family friendly atmosphere with reasonable prices. The food is average to a bit above for standard Mexican fare. Not necessarily a place to go to have a quite conversation, a lot of families and kids galore.

I went there with a group of people. The menu has typical entrees for a Mexican restaurant. A couple folks ordered the nachos, one a cheese quesodilla, and others ordered combination platters. Most dishes focused on cheesiness and garnishes (fresh sour cream, lettuce, tomato). My 'Alfredo's Platter' had a passable Chili Relleno, although a bit too cheesy. Tamale was too... More

This is a meeting place for my girlfriends and I. The service is always great. The food is always great. The price is always right. I love the red sangria.

This is one of our favorite restaurants -- we've been celebrating birthdays and graduations here for about 20 years.

I remember (fondly) when Mi Rancho first open and struggles to find a following. Visiting again on Monday reminded me how well, indeed, they succeeded. Now expanded with 2 addtional locations, Silver Spring is still the home base. We ate in the especially large, outdoor dining area on a very pleasant spring day. Our servicer was great-alert without hovering. The... More

We can always count on a good meal when we go to Mi Rancho. The hardest part is deciding what to have. I cannot pick a favortie. The food is always fresh and the chips and salsa are great! Never had a bad meal.

We love everything about this place. The service is friendly and excellent, the drinks (margaritas especially) are strong, and the food is varied and delicious. Try the ceviche as an appetizer, and the duck as an entrée, you won't be disappointed.

The frozen margaritas are good as are the chips and watery salsa. My favorite dish is the carne adsada. I think the dishes are pricey and the service mediocre. Portions are not huge (that's okay with me), but give me something with some taste! The rice is most always dry and room temp. If you're in Silver Spring and want... More
