Amazing Staff!!!

The staff was amazing, and food was delicious! The food came out super fast, too. The server was very attentive and anticipated our needs. We had a group of 7. The menu is also priced very well. And also features lunch, dinner and drink specials.

This is one of the best Mexican restaurants you will find in Western New York. Not a chain, it's a family owned business with 3 locations and an outstanding menu. The atmosphere is warm, family oriented and friendly. Food is freshly prepared, delicious and reasonably priced. We try to dine there every few weeks. We have spent years visiting in... More

Very good food. Authentic mexican food. Homemade chips and fresh salsa were fantastic as well as the queso fundido. Everything we ordered was flavorful and cooked to perfection. We have been to dozens of mexican places and this is our new favorite. Great service to boot! We will go out of our way to go back.

Have now visited this restaurant and the sister restaurant in Clarence, NY. This has a slightly different menu. I would say authenic Mexican food. I have never traveled and eaten in Mexico but I have eaten Mexican food in the US, from Arizona to California to the midwest and northeast. This is up there with the best. Good quality meat... More

Being from Southern Arizona I was a bit sceptical of Mexican food in New York, boy was I wrong . The food was very tasty, I ask the waitress for a recommendation and was presently surprised. I would highly recommend eating at Rancho Viejo.

Found this restaurant while searching on-line for a special place to celebrate a 21st birthday. I love Mexican food and this place did not disappoint. The Chile Poblano peppers were out of this world! I've eaten in several wonderful restaurants in Puerto Vallarta Mexico and this is better than some of the restaurants in Mexico. Can't wait until next year... More

Owners are from Michoacan and serve descent plates. I ate the bandera which were a variety of enchiladas. They were flavourful. My wife had a huge meat and vegetable concoction which they translated to the volcano it was quite good. Chips and salsa were included it was worth the yep and would recommend to others.
