Best salsa in three counties

Chips and salsa are outstanding. Salsa has great balance of heat and flavor. Service has never disappointed. Good variety in the nightly specials.

We routinely order from "The Ranch." The salsa is excellent and my favorite is their chicken burrito. Yummy!

We are not locals and this was our first and only time here. I get the mixed reviews about service. It was more homey, like going to a friends house, and you should know where stuff is and how its done! The restaurant is a giant pole building. It was a little chilly, wear a sweater, too. The margaritas were... More

The best chips and salsa in town. Good food, good service. A little chilly, bring a sweater. You pay at the register, so don't sit waiting for your check. Taco Dorado particularly yummy.

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant - we go a couple of times a month. It is easily accessible off the hwy 77 bypass. The wait staff are friendly and welcoming. The menu has many choices; available meats include ground beef, chicken, shredded beef, shredded pork, shrimp, a seafood combo soup. Free chips and salsa. The daily specials are generous.... More

This was out first time in Sioux City, IA and our GREAT hotel staff at Holiday Inn Express recommended this restaurant. The food was hot and delicious! We were seated and greeted by our server quickly. My only complaint would be that after our food was delivered our server never came back to check on us or our drinks! Fortunately... More

I am a fan of this place and have decided to keep myself happy, I will not return here if I am a part of a large group. Upon arriving at the restaurant, the first 3 of us mentioned we would have a group of 10. We stated that people would arrive at various intervals and that once people arrived,... More
