I have been going here for almost 10 years and have NEVER been disappointed. Service is prompt, the food is great and the have the best Margaritas in town. Hands down, our favorite restaurant.

This was my second visit in six months, and probably my last. The first time we ate here, I thought "I can't wait to come back" because the food was great! But this time, as I was eating, I thought "I don't want to come back". With the exception of the tortilla chips which were hot and crispy, the white sauce was 'watery', the pork carnitas tasted like they had boiled not slow roasted, the refried beans were soupy, the rice were soggy and the tamales were hard around the edges topped with a cold, tomato sauce. In addition, the restaurant was freezing cold and very noisy. Between the crying babies and guy who thought he was racing in the Indy 500 circling the tables, tossing dirty plates, silverware and cups into his cart, it was clear that I would not be able to enjoy the company of my friends either. I'm left to wonder... have they changed ownership or what?

As my husband and I were just finishing up our Taco Salads at the Rancho Grande at 1320 S. Military Hwy a ROACH crawled down the window sill to our table!!!! We left the table, and informed the waiter who handed us our bill!! I went to the register and told the man there and he said he was sorry. I told him I have NEVER had anything like this happen before, he was shocked and said "really? That will be $16.02". My husband paid for the meal and when I came home I checked the local health department website and found a few critical incidents for them!! Check it out at this website:

Needless to say I will NEVER go back or recommend this establishment to anyone.

Always seated promptly, chips fresh on the table a few short moments later with their delicious finely pureed salsa (not too watery either!) AND the White Sauce!! They have the very best white sauce, better than plaza azteca/guadalajara/la fiesta. The menu is nice, even has vegetarian entrees/lunch. It is clean inside, the music is mexican and it makes it feel festiv, along with all the great improvements they have made interior-wise. Brand New beautiful bar and woodwork! the servers are friendly and very fast -- food takes no longer than 10min at its busiest for 2 people. splitting checks is never a problem, you do it at the front And... they have a smoking section completely separated from the nonsmoking! there is no place better!

We have been going to Rancho Grande for years now. They are about the only mexican place in town that offers a mild salsa. They also have the best refried beans ever! The service is fast and the atmosphere is very friendly. They get a 10 out of 1-10! It is our "ole standby" restaurant.

I don't care how far I have to drive. RANCHO GRANDE is hands down the best place in Tidewater, Virginia to get a nice, inexpensive authentic mexican meals.

Great specials, the cleanest restaurant I have ever seen and the folks that are always there to serve you makes you feel like family. Please DON'T miss RANCHO GRANDE if you are looking for a comfortable, inexpensive, hot, great mexican eating experience.

This is hands down one of my favorite restaurants. I drive 20 mins, and past 2 other mexican places to eat at this one. Food is excellent, and is served so fast you have to wonder if they just know you so well. The cheese dip you can order to go with the chips is delicious, although you barely have time to eat it before the food is served. I recommend ordering the dip when you order your drinks. Great prices, everything is good, from the enchiladas to the fajitas. My son is 4 and we have been eating here since he was born. The room has so many cool things to look at, and even though he will only eat tortillas and shredded cheese, he loves the place. Last time the made him a special order that was the servers idea, and my son ate every bite.

We have eaten here a few times, every time we are in the area. The salsa is very much better than a lot of places you will find.
The food is really good and you will get plenty of it. The people are friendly and the atmosphere is festive try it and see for yourself.
