Though coveting thy neighbor's wife or underground sprinkler system is beyond the pale, longing for a mouthful of his cuisine is an understandable desire. Today's Groupon satisfies desires to eat from the table of our nation's neighbor: for $10, you get $20 worth of authentic Mexican fare at Mi Ranchito in Oshtemo Township.
Generations of treasured family recipes make up the foundation of Mi Ranchito's menu of south-of-the-border specialties, made fresh every day from authentic imported ingredients. The house special birria estilo "Mi Ranchito" ($12.95) tempts tongues with tender chunks of pork smothered in a deluge of spicy homemade barbecue sauce and is served with tortillas rice, beans, and guacamole. The golden, deep-fried chimi ($8.25) comes stuffed with a choice of beef, chicken, veggies, or beans and is topped with red or green sauce, and a "dear john" letter pre-addressed to your personal trainer. Patrons will be thankful the giant wet burrito ($10.50) forgot its umbrella at home as they are swept away in a torrent of homemade enchilada sauce, beans, cheese, and a choice of beef or chicken. Families looking to augment their tableside fiestas with appetizers can lasso in an order of four nachitos ($4.25), a specialty appetizer dish of taco-shell halves spread with refried beans and topped with cheese, jalapenos, and onions, or brush up on their division skills by sharing an order of three homemade hot tamales ($6.25) four ways.
Voted Best Mexican Restaurant in The Kalamazoo Gazette Readers’ Choice Awards for three years running, Mi Ranchito remains a local favorite among those who crave culinary authenticity. A full bar and a cask of creamy horchata await to quench parched throats, and the dining room's homey ranch-style motif may fuel dad's repressed desire to replace the carport with a corral.
