Good Place

First visit to this restaurant. The service was pretty good (although there were some language issues with the server), the food was prepared and ready pretty quickly and was good. Good family environment,

Was passing by with my family and we stopped at Rancho Viejo Mexican Restaurant for lunch and we were really happy with the restaurant. I would really like to recommend it!

My husband and I were travelling back to Canada and stopped here on our way home. So glad we did! The service is very friendly, the prices are amazing and the food was delicious! It's too bad we don't have one of these restaurants in Canada! We will definitely stop by here again the next time we go to the... More

The wildly mixed reviews made us nervous but honestly, this place was spotless, sweet, and family friendly-- and we arrived with a noisy all ages party of at least 12. Best dish was the poblano peppers. Worse was the mole-- too spicy even to eat-- and some of the weirdest margerittas I've ever drunk. Everything else was exactly as you'd... More

I an from the south and find it hard to get mexican food that I enjoy. Rancho is the place to get that awesome mexican food I love. Free chips and salsa. Great prices. Ton of choices. Staff is very friendly and you don't have to wait excessively for your food once it's ordered.

Have eaten at Rancho Viejo three of more times. I plan my I-90 trips to put me in Batavia at meal time cuz most the food in the rest stops is poor and over priced. Their menu is extensive. They have Dos XX on draft. The service is not rushed.

This restaurant is close to the hotel chains located right off I-90 and pretty easy to find. We had a craving for some good Mexican food and this place satisfied us. Their salsa had a good bite to it and our dinners were huge. The quac dip is the best I had in a long time. We found the food... More

A short drive to Batavia was so worth it. EL Paso chicken dish for under $10 was a hit Steak always good and the vegetarian selections are impressive. Friendly wait staff make this a pleasant meal with a nice feel of south of the border. A great place to take family or friends!

Nothing special here. I was a little disappointed with the kids meal. Ordered quesadilla for my kid and it was literally a tortilla filled with a little bit of cheese. It was awfully dry and boring. I felt bad even feeding it to my child. Our mains were pretty average, nothing spectacular - it did the job by filling our... More

Food was very good; especially the guacamole. Very clean. Friendly, professional staff. And my 8 year old granddaughter found a $5 coupon on the back of a Tops Super Market receipt! (A very well-trained, frugal consumer here).
