We were pleased with our lunch at Rancho Alegre. The food was delicious and our server, Lionel, was engagingly pleasant. We were served with a basket of hot crusty bread almost immediately and the rest of our food came out quickly. The vegetarian sampler was...More

We were able to walk here from our hotel. It doesn't look like much from the outside and in the opposite direction of the historic district. However, while not fancy, we enjoyed the authentic decor. Service was quick, portions were large and food made of...More

Maybe we went at the wrong time (4pm on a Tuesday afternoon). Everything we ate was bland and tasted like it had been cooked hours before. A tamale was stiff and cool, tasteless and stodgy. Whole tilapia had absolutely no flavor and the breading was...More
