Great food and service

Excellent authentic Mexican food. This isn't Taco Bell. All kinds of traditional meals and some more Americanized versions. Lots of combo choices. Good drink choices. We went with a party of 12 for a birthday and they were super attentive and got the food out quickly and accurately. Very... read more

My meal was good, it's basic good Mexican styled food. The chips weren't the greatest and seem like they came from a bag rather than being home made (hence the 4 stars instead of 5), but their pork was amazing. The prices were good and I would go back.

I have been here twice. Excellent food, service, and clean, clean, clean!!! Seems like they are always busy cleaning even when no one is around. The food portions are generous, and not expensive. I got the vegetarian bean burrito, enchalada, and it was great both times. The first time I came, my wife and I got maghararitas. Also excellent.

The margarita I ordered was huge and delicious. The chips and pico de gallo were fantastic. Unfortunately, my entree was terrible. I ordered a vegetarian plate and was very disappointed. The plate consisted of a few tortillas smothered in various sauces without any attempt to garnish or even make presentable. The worst aspect was that the cheese looked and tasted... More

The food was as close to authenticate as I have had anywhere else in the northeast :). Prices were good, staff was great. My partner had the fajitas - he could not finish the order. I had one of the special combination plates. A cheese, chicken and bean burrito. I could not finish my order either. Prices were good.

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
