I love this place. My family goes here every other week and we never get tired of it. I always get the Texas Donkey which is not what it sounds like, just a big burrito with rice, beef or chicken, beans and cheese. The service is great.

Well today I wasn't feeling well so I decided to try their tortilla soup and I was not disappointed. The soup had just the perfect amount of chicken and vegetables.

We have never had a bad experience here, either dining in or getting take-out. The salsa is fresh and has just the right amount of spice. My favorite dish is the chicken enchiladas verdes, my husband likes the pork enchiladas, and my son loves the Texas donkey. The service is great, as well.

The service is extraordinary and the food is exceptional. The Margaritas are the best I have ever had! If you want a fun place to eat out that allows you to enjoy your experience at your pace, fast or slow, this is it.

Ever heard the old saying about restaurants when traveling,"if no cars in the parking lot, pass it up". Well this is not the case at Rancho Grande. They are busy all of the time, because it's good food. My experiences have all been pleasant and have had good service. I recommend them when you are in the area.
