Second best Mexican food in Collinsville Beans and rice are good but didn't care much for the tamale. Best Mexican place in Collinsville is a place called Taco Bell

Sandy was our server, and she made us laugh and was very attentive to our needs. She let us enjoy our appetizer before coming by and getting our entree orders. She's very good at her job. We will definitely come back! The margaritas were awesome. I love the variety of the menu also. Fat Tuesday is here, go to Ramon's!!

Margaritas are my favorite drink. The ones here are fantastic because they are made without that fake lime flavoring. When I am in Southern IL, I will always come for a margarita here. I didn't like the cinnamon that they put in my cheese enchilada, I should have listened to the waitress. I loved the pork taco that she recommended.

Ramon prides himself on the food here and he is from Mexico. I have always found the food here good and authentic including the Margaritas.

Great place to get together with friends, family and co-workers for a good meal at a great price. For years a group of friends/ex coworkers get together every month or two for lunch and a great time. They have great food and service at very reasonable price. They also have homemade chips and salsa that are awesome.

I always visit this place before I go to the racetrack and they have great lunch specials. The patio is a bit too small and I prefer to sit inside anyway.

Drove 5 hours and wanted a nice sit down meal. The food was horrible. The beef burritos were just shells and plain unseasoned beef. And it cost 40 for the two of us to take maybe 5 bites apiece. Do Not Eat Here if you are wanting good food. And the waiter followed another waitress around complaining to her the... More

I have not been able to eat here for several years. Although I like the food, I can't handle the smell as soon as you enter. The food is authentic Mexican, but I have trouble tasting it over the scent of the deodorizers and cleaning products.

Inside is quite dated and could use some freshing up, but the food is authentic Mexican and quite tasty.
