I have to say nothing I experienced there was what I expected, in a good way. Start with the exterior. A small nondescript door on a side street will lead you into a very large spsce. One inside it is hard to focus on the space because of the odd and random collection of stuff scattered on the walls and... More

A group of us have been meeting at various restaurants and taverns in Ramona for Taco Tuesday for over a year. Today we went to El Michoacan. Next week we will return to El Michoacan! Although the restaurant does not have a designated Taco Tuesday with discounted prices on tacos as several in Ramona do, they more than make up... More

This is different from the other Mexican restaurants in town. There is plenty of parking near by. The food is like mama used to make if you had a Mexican mom. Very homey and tasty.

El Michuacan is a frequent stop for us. Mexican food is just fine, some excellent drinks raise the bar, and if you get Victor as your waiter you have gone to heaven. The setting is in one of Ramona's older buildings, which give lots of character (Just roll with it and enjoy).

Went for to go lunch. Mexican food with variety food and does have some alcohol. Pretty bland food for my taste. Not much spicing to it.

My husband and I wanted to do something after being inside after a few rainy days had kept us inside. A fried recommended this restaurant because they have a HUGE round fireplace in the middle of their restaurant that they light on cold and/or rainy days. The room is spacious and sitting by the fire added a special touch to... More

This place has personality! Large fireplace is always lit in the winter to warm this large space. Pictures on the walls seem to have been in place since the 1960s (think JFK & Jackie) they used to theme the tablecloths to the season (not sure if they still do this). Food is a good value & tastes good too

Our favorite mexican restaurant in town. Large open restaurant with plenty of seating. Very large wood burning fire place in the middle of the floor that really gives a great atmosphere on cold winter days.

This place has been here forever, it seems. The food is delicious and plentiful. Salsa verde is homemade and soooo... good! Family run and they really seem to care about their patrons.

I've been going here for years...you know how your memories are sometimes better than today's realities...? This restaurant is open space and dark, with no windows. No air conditioning or heating, but they do keep a lot of floor fans going during the hot months and an indoor fire pit for the cool months. It consists of assorted tables with... More
