There Are 3 Legendary Mexican Restaurants All In The Same Small Town Of Ogallala, Nebraska
Ogallala’s main claims to fame may be in its past as a wild, rough-and-tumble town in the Old West, and its proximity to the beautiful Lake McConaughy – but there’s a lot more to this small Nebraska town. It happens to also be a great spot for Mexican food, with multiple restaurants to choose from. We’ve chosen three of the best Mexican restaurants in
Ogallala, Nebraska to feature here.
1. Margaritas, 401 Stagecoach Trail
Our first restaurant is Margaritas – previously called Three Margaritas - a small local chain with one other location in North Platte, Nebraska, and a few locations in Colorado. The Ogallala location is a popular spot and for good reason.
Serving up both traditional Mexican dishes and more modern twists on the traditional, Margaritas is a must-visit. The menu has plenty of variety so you're sure to find something that suits your tastes - there are even multiple veggie options for the vegetarian diner.
And of course, we have to mention the margaritas! Try the mango margarita for a refreshing accompaniment to your meal.

2. Mi Ranchito Restaurant, 112 Prospector Drive
Next up is Mi Ranchito, a family-owned restaurant that's been serving the local Ogallala community for almost two decades. You can't miss it - just look for the giant cactus sign.
The cheerful decor inside the restaurant creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and the menu doesn’t disappoint either.

When you visit Ogallala’s Front Street, styled to look as the town did back in the Old West, you’ll feel like you’re stepping back in time. But Ogallala is more than just its past as “the cowboy capital of Nebraska.” Stay a while after you check out the tourist attractions and you’ll find friendly people, plenty of small-town charm, and of course, good food.
