It was recommended to me and I was shocked to see people stretched all the way down the block, waiting for a table in the tiny restaurant. Since then, they have expanded and have a beautiful restaurant with extremely easy access of I-80. My children were... More

Thinking were in California the Mexican food should be fantastic. I guess not this far north. It was very bland. The only thing on my plate with some flavor was the chicken. The salsa they give you with the chips was hot (temperature hot) so it was strange and tasted more like tomato soup to me. The guacamole is better... More

I've been eating at Murillo's for about 10 years and I never got around to posting a review here. Over the years I've watched the prices climb and for that reason I don't go there as often as I used to. As I've gotten older the struggle to keep the weight down has a impact on how often I eat...

Have eaten there my entire life... Excellent food and service. Get the chicken enchiladas - they are the best.

I remember eating in the downtown restaurant in the mid 70s and was so impressed with the huge pots of food being prepared, and also with the crowds squeezing to get in. One of the local favorites. Now move forward over 30+ years, and trying the restaurant while visiting from the east coast, notice several differences. Cleaner, younger staff, but... More

They don't have the largest selection, but what they offer is always good. Great Margaritas. Enjoy the two hot sauces!

The service was less than average at Murillo's and the FOOD was terrible! Our chicken tostados on a corn tortilla had almost no chicken and the food was not really tasty at all, plus we both have had gas all day from eating there at noon. Plus this place doesn't even feel like a Mexican restaurant at all. What a... More

Tex mex at its worst! My wife and I stopped in thinking this place was gonna be awesome! From the looks outside it looks like a tip top resteraunt. We ordered and the food was cold and bland, no flavor at all.
