Great little restaurant on the historic main street in town. Very accommodating to our large group---did separate checks for us. Food was good---wide variety including burgers. Very clean & inviting atmosphere.

I crave these now on a regular basis! You have to try them! I've also had El Molino cater for my work twice with Chicken Fajitas... More

During recent trip to Waseca, I ate here twice. Both times the restaurant was very busy, which says a lot about the restaurant. The food was good and service excellent.

One of the best places in the State for true Mexican food. The service is always exceptional and the food is consistently good. Worth the trip to get here. We drive 80 miles to go here.
