Grabbed dinner on way home. First time trying it out, it was ok but didn't make me say I have to go back for more.

It is on the right side of Main Street for take out on our way home so we frequently grab taquitos with guacamole. They are crunchy and yummy.

Huge selection. One of the only Mexican places in town that serves potato tacos, both crunchy and rolled. We got a couple of different combos to try a variety of things... It was all very good! Comparable prices. They could take some time to refresh their drive through and exterior. Buy definitely will go back, again and again!

Been a customer here for over 20 years. Never had a bad meal or was dissatisfied. Always good service and quick drive-thru too! Best rolled tacos w/guacamole. Excellent burritos also.

Many larger Mexican restaurants in town, but food here is consistently better than most. Small but easy parking and a drive through.

Their enchilada sauce is dark and savory. Quite different from many others. Food is good, staff friendly. It's my regular take-out place. Usually get a Combo plate, but will have to revisit the menu, which is quite extensive. Used to be just a former hamburger stand with tables out front (circa 1960) then became Mexican and they enclosed the outside... More

This is the only place I can find my beef tongue tacos which are excellent. They put salsa verde on it, which I would have preferred they didn't. Next time, I will ask them to leave it off. I would definitely come here again.

This is a small store; a drive thru and one room that can hold 20 or so with counter order and pickup. Very basic. But the food is always good. You could eat in a large classy restaurant and not be any happier with the food.

The carnitas torta was one of the best fast food meals that I have had in quite some time. I highly recommend Mi Ranchito. Although their prices have gone up slightly recently, it's still a great bargain.
