Very good Mexican in Newark Delaware

I recently are here again after having been away for a while. I had enchiladas in mole sauce. They do have the best mole sauce in Delaware. A very good place to eat. Better than those national fast food chains by a large margin.

This destination is simple and authentic. If you like real Mexican food, come to this place. It is genuine as only a very few "Mexican" places are. Excellent choice for good food.

I LUV Mexican food and this place was recommended. I wanted to like it. I should have stuck with http://www.eltapatiodelaware.com/ which doesn't disappoint. Reading Al_from_WilDel 's review I ordered the enchiladas in mole sauce. I was hopeful because the salsa and chips were outstanding!! Fresh, chunky and the best we've had locally. But the wait for food was so long... More

Morelia has incredibly delicious authentic Mexican food at a very reasonable price. Each meal comes with rice and beans and tastes great. If you like guacamole, they make it fresh and it is wonderful. My favorite is the fajitas, the portion is very generous so there is always some to take home for the next day.

Right up front, I admit to being a little bit of a food snob. I enjoy lovely ingredients in well-prepared offerings. That being said, I recognized that I wasn't walking into a five star restaurant, but I did expect the basics to be done right. If you're trying to stay within a reasonable calorie range, you will not find much... More

living less than a mile from Morelias is a blessing!! I order their take out at least once a month, and dine in at least once a month. The soft chimichanga is to die for, and their pork is so juicy and mouth watering. $2 Taco Tuesdays and cheap delicious beers make the experience even more tempting!! Even the lunch... More

My family enjoyed the meals they chose and the nachos before were great, but they did charge for things we don't always get charged for. They gave us a very small salsa and pico de gallo for 4 adults, and charged for more, even though we needed it for our meals as they came with none, and for more chips.... More

I've been to this place several times but my family and I only usually go when we have some type of coupon because the food here isn't very impressive and we'd prefer eating at the El Tapatio in Bear. The atmosphere is nice, and mostly quiet even when there's lots of people eating. The service really needs some help however,... More

We had the burrito, fajitas and chile poblanos. It's pretty much your typical mexican food. Refried beans, mexican rice. The enchiladas were ok. The Chile poblanos coating was a bit mushy. My son enjoyed his burrito. I would try other restaurants in the area before I went back to this restaurant.

I have to say, without a doubt, this is by far, the best Mexican food we've ever eaten. As the others have said, the guacamole is the best anywhere EVER!. The margaritas reminded me of the ones we had well off the beaten path in Cozumel. Not sugary, mildly lime tasting with enough tequila to enjoy. We're still loving Taco... More
