Shared a plate of ribs with salad. Good atmosphere and friendly staff. Would advise staff that a salad should be completed before bringing main course. Only complaint as Ramona lacked dining options, and I was pleasantly surprised that Nuevo Grill offered BBQ ribs, as well as steak and the typical Mexican food.

This is our "Go-To" restaurant in Ramona. I love their Chicken Tortilla Soup. I also like the out-door dinning if we want to bring our dog. The chip are wonderful. Over all it is a great reasonable priced restaurant.

Nuevo Grill is a favorite of ours. It never fails to serve a tasty and large plate. Almost always have a doggy bag for the next day's lunch! 5 stars for food and friendly staff.

This was a return visit. The food quality was very good. The waitress we had today however seemed less than capable. VERY SLOW.

We were having a special dinner on this day after picking our daughter up from the airport who had come home for college break, we entered the restaurant and were seated promptly and within a few minutes were ordering our beverages, when they arrived the order was incorrect giving my daughter a margarita which was completely opposite of what she...

This is a local Mexican restaurant which has a nice selection of entres'. The food is suited mostly for "gringos" who enjoy great flavor without the "heat". They offer a full bar. The service is usually very good and the food comes to the table nice and hot. Portions are plentiful and there's no need to go hungry.

We have always had great lunches here. Absolutely love the grilled fish tacos. These might be my all time favorite. Plenty of choices of beverages. Beers on tap. Many menu items. Even somethings for people who want burgers. Service was great. I really like not having to ask for a refill. Located in a really nice shopping area. Plenty of... More

I've been coming here for over 10 years. This restaurant recently had a much needed facelift. While it now looks good unfortunately they haven't done anything about the cooks. In the past the waitresses knew us and were very friendly but they have mostly gone now and a younger staff now waits tables. Younger does not mean better. I would... More

The food was really just adequate but the fact that there were 3 of us and each persons food came at a different time, was ridiculous. The service was slow and although the server apologized it did not stop her from bringing out each persons meal at 3 different intervals. We were also seated under a fan, and it was... More

I at there on Saturday evening with a mid-sized group of people. The service was excellent and the waitress gets 5 stars, but the food was terrible. I ordered the fajita melt. It was tasteless. I could have eaten the yellow pages and it would have tasted better. I really had my heart set on a taco salad, but guess... More
