I went to El Molino with my sister for the first time. The service was amazing, such nice servers! The chips and salsa they provide before the meal are a.m.a.z.i.n.g. The place is very big, spacious, open, and clean. I was not expecting it to be that big in a small downtown spot, but it is very roomy. Lots of... More

From my previous review, I mention that the beef seemed to have changed in a downward fashion. Seems it was a one-time event as the problem has never reoccured. We dine there frequently and the food is always excellent. The staff is wonderful and very efficient. As for the remodeling, fantastic! I don't know if it is because we are... More

Spotted this place a few months ago and decided to try it out after many people saying it was the best. It truly is the best Mexican food I have had in a long time. I love Mexican food and I would eat here every night if I lives close enough. The staff are friendly and the place is clean.... More

I was in town on business, and had an hour for lunch. I decided to try El Molino based on a local residents recommendation. Well I'm glad I did, the food was amazing! I had the Cancun chimichanga, and I highly recommend it.

I live in town and have visited many times. The food is always good, the staff is really friendly and quick. They are always a step ahead of you. Try the cancun burrito and a margarita, and you won't be disappointed.

This is a great Mexican restaurant to try. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Never have had to ask for anything before it was offered. They also added on for additional seating, which was needed for the many customers that come to dine. Worth the stop.

We stopped in Waseca because we needed gas. I was so glad we did after trying this restaurant. We had the Molcajete with 2 orders of corn tortillas. It was plenty for 2 of us and was fantastic! From a girl from the twin cities that loves Mexican it was a hit. They also have Mexican American favs that looked... More

El Molino is our favorite place to grab lunch or dinner. The food is wonderful and the prices are resonable. They have recently added on and up-dated. If you love mexican food, and are in the Waseca area this is the place to go.

Ok, I live here and this is where we go and take our guests. We had a table of 8 last night and the service was great, food was awesome and the new remodeling is outstanding. As always with the dinner menu, more than you can eat and a lot of "to-go" boxes to be had.
