Had the rib eye steak was great. Everyone waiting on us were so kind. Will go there at least once a week.

I have to agree with the other reviewers, the table side guacamole is so good, far better than the other places in town. And the food is very good also. We've just recently found this restaurant, but now that we've found it, we will certainly be regulars!!!

Absolutely the best tex mex restaurant in Magnolia. The chunky avocado salad is amazing! I order it without onions, it's prepared fresh upon order, so you can have it made the way you want it. The shrimp ceviche is very good and has lots of shrimp. Ask for the green sauce with your free chips and salsa. Service is always... More

When we go in we ask for a certain waiter and we get who we ask for. If he is off that day or evening, then we have another waiter. Who ever we have had, we had good service. The food is good and the price is good.

I love Mexican food and was reluctant to try someplace new, but I'm glad I did! The chicken fajitas were really good and moist. The tortillas were warm and delicious too. The salsa was only ok. The waiter was really nice and helpful in giving suggestions too. I'd go back again!

Rancho Grande can be loud sometimes but it's just a sign that everyone is enjoying the food and the atmosphere. The service is always attentive and prompt. The food is superior authentic Mexican. The fajitas are some of the best I've ever had. The traditional Mexican fare is well prepared and they happily accommodate special requests. This large restaurant can... More

We've been coming to Rancho Grande for years. The food and service is consistently excellent. That was especially apparent when I visited a highly regarded Mex restaurant in Houston...wasn't even close to Rancho Grande.

I always eat at Ranco Grande when visiting relatives in Magnolia. The food is authentic & tasty. The service is always top notch. We went last week with a group of 15 and did not have reservations. They were able to seat us quickly and did a great job taking care of such a large group. Check this place out... More

We met family members for lunch following Sunday worship services. It was very noisy and hard to hear us talk to one another. I had the enchiladas and they were slightly better than average but not the best. The chips and salsa were very good and so was the service. My wife ordered a hamburger and said it was very... More
