I had a light dinner here with a friend recently. I had the Avocado Vinaigrette Salad and my friend had Nachos with Chicken. My salad had many slices of avocado -- more than I expected -- and my friend even commented on it. The tomatoes in my salad, however, where not ripe at all: it would have... read more

Excellent service, and friendly staff. Both times that I have been here, the manager has visited my table to say Hi, and to make sure that we are enjoying the food, which is fresh and tasty.

I like the quesadillas, but the other entrees are excellent. Great mexican cuisine, fun outdoor covered area. Good spot for happy hours, or lunch with co-workers.

I've eaten here many times over the last 20 years - the food is consistent, well prepared and tasty. It's a good place for groups or small parties.

Highly recommended. If I could, in good conscious, make a meal out of flour tortillas, salsa, sour cream and margaritas, this would be the place to do it. The freshly made flour tortillas are some of the best I've ever had. We sat on the patio (to the left of the hostess stand), it was very nice as it wasn't... More

Great selection and variety on the menu. We had a late dinner here after a long drive from PA and everything was very tasty and authentic. Great drink selection as well.

This is our family go to Mexican restaurant and a neighborhood favorite. Margaritas are good too. We love the enchiladas and fajitas. They are very family friendly and accommodating. The sombrero on birthdays is always fun. If you want to take the kids and enjoy some mex and margs in Silver Spring, this is the place!

Great friendly place to eat. The inside restaurant is very cozy while the outside terrace is large enough to handle large groups. The food is always consistence and the nacho's and salsa are homemade and extremely tasty. There is also a Mi Rancho restaurant in Rockville Maryland. Both have great food for a good price. They also offer a wide... More

Mi Rancho is a Silver Spring staple. One of the few places with a large outdoor eating area, so a nice place to go on a warm day. The food is typical Tex-Mex, but they also have some more unusual dishes and some seafood. On the day we went, the staff were attentive and the host was very animated and... More
