“We Found Good Mexican Food in Europe”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

My husband and I have a tradition of going to one Mexican restaurant wherever we go abroad. We have been to Mexican restaurants in France, Germany, Italy, and Japan (and probably the UK -- can't remember). Anyway, this restaurant had the best food of any of those and the most generous portions. I saw some reviewers complain about the food not being spicy enough. The menu tells you (in Spanish) that, if you want your food to be spicy, you should ask for "picante." So, just say "con picante," and you will get spice. I saw some other reviews about the speed of the service. Service was kind of slow, I guess, by US standards but you're in Europe. The server did a great job and was working very hard. She appeared to be the only server. We ordered the special, which was nachos, tacos, a burrito, and dos bebidas for 27.50€. Very filling. Very picante. Overall, very satisfied with this restaurant.

Wow, we were lost in Grenada and found this place by luck. Oh my God what great food never had such a meal the fajitas were amazing and the nachos delicious. Spoke to the owner who is the chef, she lived in Mexico for a while and added her spanish touch. If i ever go back to Grenada will go there again.

“The empty tables should have been a clue”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

We visited my son in Granada. He was in the mood for Mexican food. We went to Ranchito Mexicano and were very disappointed. First, only one table was occupied when we entered. The food was microwaved frozen. The waitress spent more time on her laptop and listening to music on her headphones. My wife and one son ordered different dishes, yet other than the fact that one was folded and one wasn't, they were both identical! This place is a joke.

Thank you very much for your comments, and we feel your disappointment but we can guarantee that our food is completely homemade and although some of our dishes may look similar, they are not.

“Not worth the good ranking”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

We were very underwhelmed, very small portion of tacos and burritos stuffed with lots of rice. Not bad, but not to be raved about, can do better at home. Lunchtime empty, maybe there's a reason!

“Homesick Californians find this place like home”
Reviewed 22 February 2014 via mobile

Friendly and good homestyle food. Just like the Mexican food back home. We've been living in Paris where Mexican == Chipotle chain. I had the enchiladas mole here which has a very good flavor.
