I have been there few times already and always ordered the whole grilled red snapper. It comes with veggies and guacamole. I recommend Mi Rancho and for first time commers, please try the whole red snapper.

The food is great..the shrimp wrapped in bacon is the best. The service is great and the atmosphere quite charming but it can get noisy at times.I do not recommend the outside tent as it gets very stuffy

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! They have a heated covered patio which was perfect for us on a beautiful autumn day. Their menu had a variety of options. My husband enjoyed the beer selection and they were... More

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. They have a tortilla making machine that the kids love to watch. Some traditional mexican beers and the covered area is heated so the restaurant is open late... More

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.

Thank awalin
