I grew up eating traditional Mexican food and it is my go-to cuisine when traveling. I wasn't sure what to expect in Maryland, but Mi Rancho was great!

This restaurant is mostly outside with a covered patio. The food is all well done with a large selection of traditional dishes. Margaritas are good with some upgrades available for better tequila.

Great margaritas and excellent food. The kids menu includes a nice variety. It's a great place to take kids or a large crowd. The service is excellent.

This is our family's go-to restaurant for all occasions. The food is excellent Tex-mex and the portions are generous. They make their own tortillas. The variety of Margaritas are great.

Best grilled camarones, tortillas, and pina colada! I had their grilled shrimp so many many times, they had outdoor heated sitting, so even in winter or rainy days, you can sit outside! You can see their tortilla making machine and see fresh tortillas being prepared.

The food is good and the portions large and the margaritas hit the spot. Many families tend to go here, adding to the festive atmosphere. Favorites include the taco salad and the fajitas.

Great food. Fantastic margaritas. Super service. Very quaint restaurant. Reminds me of some great Mexican restaurants in Mexico city. A little pricey for Mexican food.
