We went to try La Ranchita on a Groupon and came away somewhere in the middle. The place is attractive but not too "Mexican" and the food is attractive looking but too salty. The prices were high and the flavor was rather bland. My son loved the fish but the rest of us were so-so on our plates. We had... More

We frequent this particular location about 1-2 times a month primarily due to its close proximity to the house however I would say that their food is probably the best tex-mex in Morrisville. If you do go on $5 margarita night beware, as the margaritas are watered down. They don't seem to be as bad when you pay full price... More

We went here on a LivingSocial deal and were very impressed by the delicious food and friendly service. I haven't had Mexican food this good since living in Arizona! I highly recommend it and we will definitely be eating here again!

My wife and I use living social coupons to try out new restaurants. You are supposed to let them know when you go in that you have one. This restaurant knew and treated us great. The chicken rolls off the appetizer menu was delightful. They are a Mexican form of egg rolls but served on a bed of lettuce with... More

Stopped at this restaurant the other night for take-out. I will be first to admit, Mexican food does not make good take-out. Even though I don't live far away, by the time I got food home, it was average. The staff was very pleasant and friendly and to be fair, I am going back this coming weekend and eating at... More

This is really close to my home, finally ended up going here. It is really good. The menu probably has more items to choose from compared to other Mexican restaurants, especially with lots of choice for vegetarians. Food is better tasting than average. But what struct me was the friendliness of the staff. With a baby and a small kid... More

I was in town alone on business so I ate at the bar. The bartender was pretty attentive. The Top Shelf Margarita was OK, but not outstanding. After one of those I had a XX on draft. The Tortilla Soup was the best thing I had to eat. The Chile Relleno Don Pepe was a little disappointing. Maybe I've been... More

The tacos here are really fantastic. Fish, tinga and the carne asada - all are excellent. The tacos al pastor are good but nothing special. My husband gets sick almost every time he eats here, and they did only get 90 on the most recent sanitation grade from the state. My husband will no longer eat here with me. But,... More

My fiancé and I love Mexican food, and this place is fabulous, the only downfall is the menu is a bit pricier than most Mexican restaurants we're used to, but we will be back again regardless. The fajitas at delicious and HUGE!
