We really apologize that you got a cracked glass, sometimes glasses like plates get cracked and is our foul that sometimes we don't detect this kind of problems right away, specially when we are very busy, but we really appreciate your comment. Thanks. José Herrera. We will be more careful. More

I expected it to be FANTASTIC because it was number 1 on this website. I have never been there until a week ago and I will never go there again. My friends who have went there a few times said that I had to try their new restaurant ( They weren't to fond of the old one I guess )... More

The fajita burrito was phenomenal...although it was big enough for two people! The staff was attentive and friendly. The restaurant (and restrooms) was clean and cheerful. I will definitely go back to try the rest of the items on their extensive menu!

We have been going to Plaza Morena since it first opened south of Owatonna. Now that they have a wonderful new Plaza Morena north of Owatonna, we are happy to say it is even better due to the atmosphere and space. Of course, the Mexican food is as always THE BEST! I normally order Chicken enchiladas or Vallarta Especial and... More

Margaritas - check. Crazy good food - check. Desserts - check. What more could you want. If it is your birthday or someone you want to embarrass - let the staff know and see what happens.

The restaurant at the Albert Lea location is located inside the front doors of the Bridge St. Mall. They've done a good job of making it informal--they've even worked in a "streetscape patio" dining experience. The food is good--and offers both "Tex-Mex" (Americanized Mexican food) and authentic dishes. The price is reasonable, the portions are filling, and the senior portions... More
