“Didn't Like It Then-Don't Like It Now”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

This restaurant has been in this location for years. We visited it many years ago and didn't like it. This time we were at The Falls and decided to go there just because... The garlic bread was mostly dry. The Fried Cheese was thin, too crispy, rubbery and too salty. The "Vuelve a la Vida" Ceviche with lime/tomato/cilantro sauce tasted like "sofrito". The Beef Medallions were good but the bacon in which they were wrapped was undercooked and slimy. The Baby Churrasco was tiny for the price - baby means small but this one was a newborn baby. We refused to order dessert or coffee and bring the evening to a close. There are plenty of places in Miami to eat rice, beans and plantains; and there are also great steakhouses - I personally don't see a reason to give this place another try. Something interesting is that the check gives you the suggestion of starting tipping at 18% (not 15%). Outrageous! - taking into consideration that our waiter was not even close to being friendly - he just went through the motions.

“Now THAT is Some Good Tasting Meat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

After arguing for nearly an hour on the best place for Latin American food in a place you will feel confident about eating without contracting a food borne illness, everyone agreed on Los Ranchos. Some recommended another place that offered the same great tasting food at a fraction of the cost, so we went there first. We pulled up to the parking lot on the backside of this strip mall and we had the complete view of the kitchen area... That was all it took for my wife. I didn't see any nets on the cook's head and the stove looked, well, unclean along with the garbage bag on the floor and standing water. Off to LR. The table ordered a variety of things from chicken soup to steaks. The steaks were absolutely delicious and tender. We sacrificed price for a clean looking environment, presentation and confidence. You could create your own plate of different proteins. The sangria was a nice compliment to our meal. Pricey!

“Excellent steaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

A restaurant for everyone who likes steak and/or Latin food. Entree's come with a salad, moros rice & sweet plantains but you can substitute fries or baked potatoes. Also have good seafood entrees.
