Mexican Restaurant near El Rancho Rankin
Sun, 03/21/10 10:58 AM
Over 25 years ago, Bobbi & I briefly lived near Cincinnati. While there we frequently ate at a Mexican restaurant that was located near to the notorious El Rancho Rankin fleabag motel. This was at a time when finding a Mexican restaurant other than Chi Chi's was a challenge in the Midwest.
I am reminded of this after again being disappointed with the pork carnitas at a Mexican restaurant. No carnitas I have ever had can compare to the carnitas at this place on Beechmont Avenue. The carnitas had more flavor than typical stewed pork carnitas and came with a very rich sauce that was almost a barbecue sauce.
Do any of our Cincinnati/N. KY members recall this place?
Note: Bobbi is disputing my memory of this place being right next to ERR, so my inquiry may be off base.
