My second time to fill our craving for Mexican food. My first visit was during the Redmond fair with my son who was a vendor. I enjoyed it then so when my friend and I were choosing our lunch location and asked her Bend kids. I realized I had been there before. Yes, an excellent place. Careful the salsa is... More

Brought the wrong drink order. Waited on water refills till I had to flag them down. Then after pointing out the huge dark long hair in my food they said sorry and only offered to bring a new one to go. Obviously, who wants food at that point and it was marginal even before the hair.

For Mexican food in central Oregon it's just okay, waiters not friendly at all. We have a lot of experience with Mexican food wouldn't go back

I have to admit when it comes to Mexican food I'm gonna tell you how it is. I grew up in a "Mexican" household, although being born here, and having acquired the knowledge of authentic foods taste, cooking and preparation I usually have something to say.

I come here for Mexican food whenever I am in town. Today was a business lunch I had with my colleagues. I always love the very tasty food, and the service was very good. A good Mexican place in town.

Easily the best Mexican food I have ever eaten! Delicious seafood enchilada. Everything was fresh and savory! The salsa pushed my limits for heat, but kept me going back for more! Probably the best margarita I have had as well!

I dined at El Rancho Grande - it was an excellent experience! The restaurant is within a mall along I-97 and offers very good Mexican cuisine - I had "carne asada", and it was perfectly cooked, and very good tasting.

My wife and I go here at least once every time I get to Bend. I am up here every couple of months until I move permanently. I love this place, their salsa is the best around and the Margaritas taste great. I look forward to going again soon.

We enjoyed our meal here while passing through. The service was great, the prices were reasonable, the meals came fast and the food was good. We'll come back if in this area again.
