I've been going to Murillo's since 1970, when I was in high school. Now my husband and I meet our friends there every other Tuesday for senior night and we love it. My favorite is the chicken Paco special, yummy yummy yummy!

While visiting the town and going out and about I decided to stop in for a bite to eat. I was pleasantly surprised. The wait to be seated took a little longer than I wanted but that only means this place is awesome and the hometown folks know good food. I ordered the chicken salad and enjoyed the fact that...

Now the Waitress was very nice, and the service expedient.. But we had to HUNT for any meat on two of our plates (EXTREMELY cheap on the meat), and all four of us found the food to be VERY disappointing, boring, uninspired and OVERPRICED!

I started dining at Murillo's when they only had one tiny restaurant In Vacaville. 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...

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!
