Mi Ranchito has the best tacos in San Carlos. The carnitas is so tasty whether it's in a taco, burrito or salad. We have used them on five different occasions to cater parties at our home. They bring the whole set up, grill and all. They prepare fresh tacos, burritos and quesadillas and everybody loves it. I like both of... More

Good eats. I ordered a burrito and it was massive in size and thoroughly tasty. The restaurant allows for eat-in dining but most people seem to order and take-out. The dining space is decent--nothing fancy. Even though there are many restaurants on this street, this little place is my fav.

We probably stop by or order take out twice a month. The restaurant is nothing fancy and no alcohol but the carnitas is delicious and the service always friendly. We love the pico de gallo, too. All the chips and salsa you can eat is included. Great for take out on the way home from work or when you want... More

This is a hold out from the old San Carlos. We go here when the kids want Mexican. The food is very good, has a yummy mini salsa bar with chips and one of the last places to have fresh carrot and oj. Great for the price and the food.

We love to get takeout from Mi Ranchito Taqueria. The burritos are delicious and the chips are never stale. We usually order at least five different things and make special requests for some items and they always have the order correct. Friendly and efficient!

This restaurant has the best mexican food I have ever had! It is very cheap but also so good! It is "real/original" mexican food unlike other "fake" mexican restaurants. Fast to get food, 3 - 5 minutes every time. The atmosphere is a little run down and old but it's fine for me.

My favorite here is a chicken burrito, which is ridiculously big and well priced at $6-$7. There is something for everyone, though, the grilled chicken plate special (not on menu, usually printed and taped to bottom of menu board) is to die for and tasty as well. My husband and daughter like the chorizo and eggs, and the tamales. I... More
