Hands down, our favorite Mexican food restaurant. Very authentic & the menu has hundreds of options. I recommend the Chicken Chimichanga. It's very budget friendly & the amount of food you get, you'll definitely have leftovers, so it can easily be lunch the next day!...More

We were hungry, we ate, and we visited. He service was attentive and prompt. The food was good. We started with guacamole and chips so we ended up taking half our food home. Plenty for two meals.

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.
