On our trip from San Diego, CA to Oregon we stopped at Corning CA to visit Lucero's for olive oil, & The Olive Pit for olives and great sandwiches, both highly recommended. In spite of the good reviews posted about the Rancho Grande restaurant, I can only report our experience. Parking was limited, but we found a space in the rear lot. Upon entering the restaurant it appeared clean, with limited decor, and seemed to be run by a man & woman. The place appears to be frequented by locals. but I did not notice any Mexican families eating here, (Not a good sign). We stood at the entrance for about 10 minutes, finally the lady said seat yourself at any empty table. We found a clean table in the rear, the place was a little noisy, but not unusual for a family style restaurant. The gentleman asked for our choice of drinks, we requested tamarind, usually a freshly made Mexican drink, as he passed our table he put two bottles of tamarind soda on the table. No glasses, no straws, no comment. We asked for glasses, and about 15 minutes latter they arrived. The salsa was bland and we had a long wait for the the chicken enchiladas. They had very little taste, I have eaten better ones that were frozen. After our meal we paid at the counter and was asked by the man, "don't you plan to leave a tip. We travel a lot, and eat at many Mexican restaurants, I would rate this one at the bottom of the barrel.

We took our family here for dinner and even though it seemed like it took forever for the owner to come to our table (we were the only patrons at that point), it was well worth the wait. The sauce they put over their tamales and burritos was EXCELLENT!! I loved the place and will go back if we are ever in the area!

Stopped in here while traveling through the area. Sweetheart of a waitress and the food was very good. Reasonable prices too. Would go back if I was in the area again.

Wonderful Mexican food served in a friendly family restaurant. Loved the vegetarian taco salad, enchiladas, carne asada and delicious fresh salsa and chips. Meats were perfectly seasoned with just the right amount of spice. Outstanding guacamole. Very reasonable prices! Dined with several friends and family and all agreed we'd definitely return to Rancho Grande.
