Recognized for four years running in the Kalamazoo Gazette’s Readers’ Choice awards, Mi Ranchito stands as one of the area’s oldest Mexican restaurants and carries on a rich culinary tradition with a menu of generations-old recipes. Native Guadalajarans Jose and Lucia Franco incorporate ingredients imported form Mexico into starters such as the signature nachitos—four taco shell halves daubed with refried beans, melted cheese, and jalapenos that combine cheesy and crunchy better than a knock-knock joke spelled out in granola ($4.25). Freshly prepared entrees include the barbecue sauce-infused pork platter, “Mi Ranchito” ($12.95), and the flauta seaprema, made from crispy bites of butter-sauteed seafood topped with cheddar cheese sauce ($9.95).
