One of the Best Mexican Restaurants in St. Louis

The pork carnitas are amazing, their amazing chicken soup is enough for two and they have horchata which is not common for Mexican restaurants in the St. Louis. Mi Ranchito is tucked away in a strip center across from Vernon's BBQ, an University City landmark. It is extremely clean, well lit and... read more

Holy cow! I absolutely cannot recommend this place enough. The portion sizes are huge, they tasted delicious, and everything was ready super-quickly. Clean restaurant and restrooms with very reasonable prices.

We started a sweet 16 celebration here for lunch. There were 11 of us and our service was excellent. This is one of our fave Mexican places even though we live about 25 minutes away. The fish tacos are always great. Nachos seem to please everyone and I love the enchiladas Verdes. So fresh and yummy. We also have made... More

I am still thinking of last night's dinner: the carnitas plate. I'm new to STL from CA, where we have the bomb Mexican food. I was wary of trying a Mexican place here but hoped for the best. From the moment I walked in, the service and atmosphere were great. Our server was fantastic. I LOVE that they give each... More

We have gone there twice. Because of the great reviews we went back. That second time we were hoping the first time was not representative. I would as soon buy something frozen from Trader Joe's. No, actually TJ's I think would be better. Yes, this is Missouri, and we have lots of mediocre Mexican restaurants but there are quite a... More

Walkd right in and got seated. Isacc was our waiter and was very intentive. Chips and salsa were good, so was their cheese sauce! All 6 of us enjoyed dinner and margaritas.

I live in St Louis and by far, my favorite place to dine in the U-City loop is Mi Ranchito. There's lot of choices on the menu, the service is quick, and the price is right. I would have given it an excellent rating but the décor could use some sprucing. Never ordered one thing here that I didn't like.... More

Love this restaurant. Pleasant, speedy service and comfortable casual atmosphere. Good offerings for vegetarians as well. If you like Mexican food, give this place a try.

The service here is fast and on the ball, the food is good enough, its not very inventive, but its your basic TEX/MEX and for those budget minded, a great dinner value. Really priced right lunch specials and of course, you can get draft XX Beer in pitchers! Lots of off street parking.

Delicious Mexican Food joint. The widespread menu is a big advantage and a reason to make several visits to savour all the tastes and flavours. We ordered the shrimp Chimichanga, Nachos Camaron, Chicken Fajitas # 10 Fish and rounded it off with the fried ice cream the highlight of the meal. Service excellent and with a smiling face.
