I had a great lunch experience here with a group from the office. Not only was the food good, but they graciously tinkered with dishes to please everyone on diets such as low carb, vegetarian, or low fat. We enjoyed great service indoors. The lunch menu has discounted prices making this a good value for a Mexican lunch. However, I... More

I'll preface this by saying 1. I have lived in Mexico and 2. It's not the west coast... We went on a weekend night and it was busy and noisy - which was fine. We were super disappointed with the food. It was almost not edible. My son ordered the chicken tacos and they tasted like they were made with... More

I have been dining at this location for more than 20 years. I used to live in Silver Spring and now live in Potomac. I still visit there a half dozen times per year. It is family owned and operated and authentic. Great ethnic diversity in their patrons and very friendly for families while being a good choice for couples.... More

Mi Rancho has been a favorite place to celebrate office comings and goings. It can handle almost any size group, the menu accommodates non-meat eaters and is extensive, the food is very good, and the service is prompt and attentive. Other Tex-Mex places in downtown Silver Spring do not compare.

There were a LOT of families with kids here when we were there (with kids). It's loud and bustling, but the service was excellent. The food was fine. There was a lot to choose from for both meat eaters and vegetarians. My only small quibble is that the restaurant smelled quite a bit like the very popular fajitas, so I... More

I had dinner here during a business trip, and it was very good. The place looks like for local latino people, with family and children, so it can be noisy, but the quality of the food makes it worthwhile to come back over and over.

Reasonable priced entrees with a wide variety of menu items. The chips were crisp and the salsa was good. The portions were fairly large.

Mi Rancho is a welcoming place but there's nothing very special about the fare. It's at least not as antiseptic as some of the national chains like Chipotle, Qdoba or Baja Fresh, but it's not worth making a trip to Silver Spring for

The Silver Spring location is a regular favorite. The food is always delicious and the staff is very friendly. Don't hesitate to ask questions about how dishes are prepared or ask for special needs (i.e., gluten free). They are very accommodating.
