Description: It all started in the kitchen when the Armenta family came to Utah from Guanajuato, Mexico. Mama brought with her the wonderful recipes that have been in the family for generations. A blend of secret ingredients, strict attention to freshness and quality have been the foundation of the tradition of good cooking you will find at Mi Ranchito. It was Papa, though, who had the idea to involve the whole family and create a truly special restaurant. The entire family pitched in and helped in the first Mi Ranchito when it opened in Orem, Utah back in 1983. Manuel and Senorina Armenta eventually shared the responsibility of running Mi Ranchito with their sons and daughters. Each restaurant is under the personal care of a family member, guaranteeing that the family recipes are followed very closely. Today Mi Ranchito it is still a family business; family owned, family operated and family loved.

WARNING! The portions are huge! I had to use a wide angle lens to take the pictures! I kid you not ginormous portions of fantastic mexican food! Extremely impressed with the quality of this food, the lobster enchiladas were out of this world! Vegetarian burrito was very good! The mexican rice was just like grandma Martinez used to make! Seriously this place deserves a 6 star rating and our server was awesome! Mallory did an awesome job! Great place! Great food! WE ARE COMING BACK!!!!!

We were in the mood for Mexican food while traveling through and found this place on Yelp. Not knowing the area we had no idea what part of town it was in, etc. We were pleased to see so many cars parked there at lunch time. It was a good sign.
Food is reasonably priced. They serve large portions, so plan on bringing some home, or split it with someone. I had the chicken burrito and it was huge. Couldn't even finish half along with the rice and beans. My husband ordered a taco and enchilada and he couldn't finish his either. Fast and friendly service.

Mi Ranchito is my favorite local restaurant. Family-owned, great food, inexpensive prices. The only drawback that you'll run into is that it can be crowded due to its popularity. Try the chicken enchiladas, you won't be sorry.

Anytime we want a plate of meat (shrimp, carne Assad’s, chicken, pork) and veggies to feed the entire family of six, we order the parillada which they say feeds four but it actually will feed eight. We always have food left over. Comes with a bag of chips a carton of salsa and two things of rice and beans. This is a great restaurant it’s always consistent and always good.

The parking lot was full and the place was packed, so I was surprised that the food was average. But there is a LOT of it, so that may be part of the local appeal.
