Easily the best Mexican food I have ever eaten! Delicious seafood enchilada. Everything was fresh and savory! The salsa pushed my limits for heat, but kept me going back for more! Probably the best margarita I have had as well!

I dined at El Rancho Grande - it was an excellent experience! The restaurant is within a mall along I-97 and offers very good Mexican cuisine - I had "carne asada", and it was perfectly cooked, and very good tasting.

My wife and I go here at least once every time I get to Bend. I am up here every couple of months until I move permanently. I love this place, their salsa is the best around and the Margaritas taste great. I look forward to going again soon.

We enjoyed our meal here while passing through. The service was great, the prices were reasonable, the meals came fast and the food was good. We'll come back if in this area again.

Have tried many of the Mexican restaurants in the area and this by far is the best. Love the margarita favor selection and have not had anything that was not delicious.

Our meal was great. Salsa just the right amount of spicy. Ordered cheese enchilada, shredded beef taco, rice and beans. All food ordered was really delicious. Service was good too.

This is good if you live in the NE area. If not, much better and more authentic around. Tacos and enchiladas are good, margaritas are good, just not great. Service is OK too.

The restaurant is in the Cascade Village Shopping Center at the north end of Bend. I have been looking for a good Mexican restaurant in the area and finally decided to go to El Rancho Grande. I was very pleasantly surprised! Had lunch with my husband and we ordered very different items; both meals were excellent. The service was very... More
