Mi Ranchito

887 Kingsland Ave. University City, MO 63130 | University City | 314-863-1880

Location Description:

Tucked away in a strip mall just north of the Delmar Loop, Mi Ranchito has proven so popular that it has expanded to nearly twice its original size. The lengthy menu features many of the standard Mexican dishes, from burritos, tacos and enchiladas to even heartier plates of carnitas and chile colorado. Mi Ranchito is especially well known for shrimp dishes and mammoth margaritas. The lunch specials (available every day but Sunday from 11 a.m. till 2:30 p.m.) are a notable value, particularly the chori pollo, a grilled chicken breast topped with chorizo and melted cheese.
