Considering the large number of good Mexican restaurants in Silver Spring and surrounding areas, the food here was average at best. Maybe the drinks are good --we did not try them,-- but our enchiladas were rather heavy and not very flavorful.

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.

We enjoy eating at Mi Rancho, the staff always have a smile on their faces and service is timely. The food is good, solid, Mexican food, with several shrimp dishes which are my favorite. The owner/manager is often on hand and comes to the tables asking about your meal.

The enchiladas were good. The Mi Rancho margaritas are good. It was so loud we couldn't really hear each other or the waitress.

This is a great place to take the whole family out to dinner. We go at least once a month and always enjoy the food, and the great service.

I am used to SouthWest spicy food, which Mi Rancho does not have....so I mark them down on the food. Once a week we go there, though, as it is my grandson's favorite restaurant. He loves the Spanish rice, and the children's menu ice cream. The staff is always helplful, friendly, and understanding. The food is consistent, and I usually... More

The staff was very attentive and the Steak Nachos are great. You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

Mi Rancho is our family's favorite go-to restaurant for every occasion. We are always satisfied by the things we try on the authentic, comprehensive Tex-Mex menu. Fajitas are excellent. Pollo al Jardín is great. Delicious flour tortillas made on site. Kids love to watch the clear tortilla oven/machine rolling, baking, flipping and dropping the piping hot tortillas into a stack....

This is a place I went with a large group a few years ago and has become one of my preferred restaurants for almost every occasion. It is probably the best Tex-Mex in the DC area (I lived in Texas for a long time so, I should know). Their grilled meats are superb. Dishes are varied and plenty. Prices are... More
