We stopped by to Rancho Viejo in Batavia for dinner on 6/14/2014 and were pleasantly surprised to find out pretty good quality food. The menu was well diverse and offered enough variety for vegetarian folks. There were plenty of complementary chips, salsa and habanero sauce. Our orders arrived quite promptly and food was very delicious. Overall very quick service, reasonably... More

We were originally heading to Delevan's, but it appeared to have closed, so we stopped here and were glad we did. Cold beer, fresh chips (salsa was "meh," but ok), and good food. Chimichanga, enchiladas, burritos, and fajitas were all good, hot, and served quickly and pleasantly. They also accommodated my kids weird requests (no beans, no guac, etc.) without... More

Stopped here last saturday for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The salsa for the chips was excellent and our lunch was very good. My burrito was full of delicious flavored chicken and the rice/beans were very tasty too. Will definitely return next time we are in Batavia.

For authentic Mexican cuisine that is great tasting and reasonably priced, a trip to this restaurant is perfect. The place has plenty of parking, nice décor inside and very clean. Customers are always greeted with complimentary chips and salsa. The chips taste freshly made, not day old. We usually order a side of the white cheese dip and it is... More

The atmosphere in this restaurant is just great! I appreciate the speedy seating upon arrival. A basket of warm chips and salsa arrived shortly after being seated. Drink orders were taken - it seems that alcoholic drinks take a bit longer to be delivered - not really a problem as I wasn't in a hurry - and wanted to relax... More

Stick with the chips and salsa and a drink--you'll be fine. Everything else is bland and less than "authentic." I hear the fish is good, but I won't return to tell you.

Very unorganized. I called while we were in there because they never thought someone could be upfront waiting to be seated. Because they were unorganized that made us have to wait for someone to decide who's table we were. Then our table received our meals separate and still not all together. We would have had a second drink but no... More

Having lived in the "southwest" for decades and moved back home to Upstate NY, I searched for a "real" "authentic" Mexican restaurant. I've been to quite a few and they all were very disappointing. I passed by this place a few times when travelling from Corning to Buffalo. Yesterday I stopped in. I asked many questions and was accommodated with... More
