Great food, fun atmosphere, really friendly staff, reasonable prices - what else could you ask for. Over the years I have been to this establishment many times with my wife and family and it's always been very, very good. The staff - from the owner on down - is always polite, friendly and efficient. You will feel very welcomed and appreciated. The atmosphere is very pleasant and fun, both inside and on the large patio. The food is really great. My favorite is the chicken fajita, but everything else I've tried is also terrific. The prices are quite reasonable and the restaurant is very kid-friendly. Give it a try; you won't be disappointed!

Nice place with highly addictive chips and salsa. Big portions at a reasonable price. Good place for luncheons or functions.

We've been going to this restaurant since our now-teens were youngsters and unfailingly have a great dinner. Our kids made it their birthday pick for many years, not least because they loved seeing the tortillas made on a small machine right there in the restaurant. The inside atmosphere is cozy in winter and outside feels like another country in summer (it's also fun to eat outside when the temps aren't too bad in winter). The staff are friendly and the good selection, although not wide, tastes the best of any U.S. Mexican restaurant we've visited. A great number of the dishes contain cheese, which narrows the choice for those who don't eat it.

I have eaten here several times. The food is always consistent and the wait staff is very pleasant. They have a great Tex-Mex menu and make their own home made chips and salsa sauce in house. I would recommend this place for those of you who are looking for a casual dining experience with a great menu and good drinks. Their fish and lamb specials are great!

What more could you ask for? We visit the Rockville location more often than Silver Spring, but the food and service is the same in both. There's rarely a wait to be seated in Rockville, probably because there are so many other restaurants along the Pike. With less competition in SS, there can sometimes be a little bit of a wait, esp. in the summer time, though it's well worth it and it's never been excessive.

We usually get the Plato Grande (for 2) for the 4 of us ( 2 adults, 2 teenage kids) and it's more than enough and has a great variety with something for all of us. Great Margaritas too!

Mi Rancho is definitely our favorite sit-down Mexican restaurant!
