Great food

The food is very good, has great flavor is is seasoned for flavor not for heat. Service can be slow at times. Seems there is not enough servers at times and the ones that are working and very friendly but have to cover a lot of tables

I've had several opportunities to go El Rancho Grande. I mainly go there because it's one of the few sit-down Mexican places in our neck of the woods. The food is so-so, but the portions are good-sized. I've tried the fajitas, baja burrito, enchiladas, salsa and chips and several other dishes trying to find one that I thought was amazing,... More

I'm not a big fan of mexican food but for some reasons i kept going back in this restaurant, maybe because their foods are awesome as in Fresh & Great! Some Servers speaks bilingual (Spanish & English). Salsa is authentic & taste different. Try it!

My husband has been coming here since it was a small burrito stand. We were excited when they opened a restaurant in Draper and sad when they left. So we go out to the original and it is so good. The chili colorado and the chili verde burritos are so good.

If you love Mexican food, El Rancho Grande is worth the trip from anywhere in the valley. The food is uniformly good. The service almost always prompt and always friendly. Note: It can get really crowded and noisy on a Friday or Saturday night. Weekday specials include my favorite, the chili verde burrito with soft drink for $7. They also... More

This is the best Mexican Restaurant in the Salt Lake Valley. Their fajitas are so good, I've learned not to order them any where else because I'm always disappointed. It's the place to go for wonderful Mexican food!
