Mi Ranchito (887 Kingsland Avenue, University City; 314-863-1880)
kashmirkissy: I love Mi Ranchito in U City. I've eaten there many times, always trying something different, and I've never been disappointed. The service is always impeccable. Margaritas are as close to perfect as you can get. I'm 26 now but I spent my 21st birthday there. They gave me a complimentary shot of Don Julio in a cool shot glass that I got to keep. I just love it there and I hope it never goes away. Try the grilled shrimp, btw :) Perfection.
Chimichanga's (5425 South Grand Boulevard; 314-352-0202)
Lauren Humberg: Chimichangas on grand. The Jalisco special is fantastic.
Taqueria El Bronco (2817 Cherokee Street; 314-762-0691)
Will Wulff: Taqueria El Bronco on Cherokee Street.
Las Palmas (7356 Manchester Road, Maplewood; 314-645-3364)
