We visited twice in two weeks for lunch...the service excellent...the food very good...the margaritas exquisite. Will visit often...located just off I-75 at exit 32 in Middletown, Ohio...very close to all the hotels that are located at this exit. Our servers were excellent...recommend mid-afternoon for a laid back nice visit.

This place was very good when it first opened several years ago, good food, good service etc. But we have went here a couple times this trying to give them another chance thinking any place can have a bad night. But that wasn't the case, the atmosphere is very nice but it ends there. The staff don't speak english very... More

Poor english communication and two of our orders were totally wrong and one order arrived way early and taste was poor. The surroundings are nice but the food quality has dropped since they opened several years ago.

We were referred here by the hotel we stayed at when we asked for a good Mexican restaurant. We were not disappointed, the food was very good and our waiter was most attentive. Our food was served quickly and was nice and hot. Overall, a great place to eat!

We went here for dinner and had the steak fajitas for 2. The dinner came out very quickly (of course, they were also not very busy) and the steak was nicely done. The rest of the dinner was good (not great) but the price was very reasonable.

Love their large menu selection. And it is amazing how quickly your food comes which is always hot and as you ordered! Lived in Los Angeles many years and got use to good Mexican food. I found it at El Rancho Grande. The manager is exceptional and will always greet you and ask how your meal was.

I ate here with my husband, stepdaughter and grandson while visiting the Sauerkraut Festival and a basketball camp in the area. The food was fresh, plentiful and the service was fast. The wait staff was pleasant. It's a little hard to find so I hope you have GPS but it is definitely worth the search!

Atmosphere is fun, people are friendly, service is excellent, and food is very good. I love the salsa and chips. The menu has your typical Mexican fare plus a vegetarian section where you can get more than a bean burrito. The mushroom quesadilla is great, even without cheese for you vegans.
