Place way too small. Staff was okay. Waitress made us feel dumb for asking questions about the combinations. We wanted a booth, but had to sit at a table since there was no booths available. Tables are way too small. We had no room for our plates since the waters and soda cups were so huge. We spilled one of... More

Stopped in for a quick bit so ordered the shredded beef nachos with black beans. Hugh portion, fresh and flavorful. Enough for a couple days leftovers! Friendly staff.

Good flavor. I am a big fan of the simple beef taco. The meat has an excellent flavor. The suisa enchiladas is... More

After 1000 miles in the car and what seemed an equal number of fast food joints, it was a pleasure to dine at Murrietas. The goat stew was delicious, as was the abondigas. The staff were very pleasant and welcoming. It was quiet enough to chat. The prices were incredibly reasonable.

A little out of the way, but worth the effort. The food, service and intimate atmosphere make this place a favorite of locals. The shopping center location has ample parking.
