What can I say, this place has Mexican food! The Shrimp ceviche is so large it will blow your mind! Authentic texmex choices I've been coming for years and have never been disappointed

This is my favorite Mexican food in Elgin and for a small town, we have a lot of options in this food genre. They have several fajita plates that are fantastic and not something I have found in other places. I also really like the drink options. The new locations looks great, but the last several times we've been we've... More

The food is not spiced as well as it is at the pflugerville location. The chips are over cooked. The rice is good. The building is gorgeous. The drinks are good. I wish they would get some of the cooks from pflugerville to come teach what they do in Elgin. It would help business a lot.

Grandiose new building on 290 west in Elgin without the added effort in food preparation! Stopped this afternoon to try out their new place shortly after noon lunch rush. I ordered the mole chicken enchiladas and wife ordered the tortilla soup. My enchilada plate came out barely warm with the menu stated 2 enchiladas, charro beans and rice. The mole... More

Obviously, there's no lack of good Tex-Mex in this part of the world. Morelia's had very good food and service. What set them apart for me was the variety. I had a combo plate with spinach enchilada, chicken mini-quesadilla, beef flauta, guacamole, sour cream, rice, and beans for under $10 - plenty of food for two meals. The only reason... More

Since opening their new, much larger, restaurant the prices have gone up a bit. The food is very good... and the Mexican Martinis are to die for. Service can be slow at times so not the best place to go if you're in a big hurry. Overall, a good choice in Elgin. ..

My son was on a break from summer camp and we stopped for lunch. The fountain out front made for a great photo op, but the experience inside made it memorable. The Stuffed Avocado and the Chicken Picante were wonderful and the service was spot on. We enjoyed a relaxed and unhurried meal. I was happy to learn that they... More

Beautiful entrance to a nice little restaurant. No doubt there is something for everyone on their extensive menu. Nacho appetizer was good but a little heavy on the refried beans. Taco plates were awesome entrees. The flan and Sopapillas were an awesome finish. Service was good. Overall I would definitely recommend it.
