Went on a Fri nite ...greeted with a smile .. Hot chips arrived immediately with GREAT fresh salsa...ordered house margarita , generous but mediocre in flavor. Ordered chicken enchilada off the "specialties of the house" menu...not that special....large serving enough for two to share but not very flavorful at all! Seemed like they took shredded chicken rolled it in corn... More

We go often and the quality of the food is always consistent and delicious - and the margaritas are good too!

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.

I am picky about my Mexican food from growing up in AZ and this is pretty darn good food. Sometimes the sauces can be a little salty but overall its always very good. The hot sauce is amazing.

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.

I eat here often and can recommend the food - good Mex! Cabrito (goat) is the order of the day - also Carnitas. Pico is excellent; service is fine and outside setting is nice (but overlooks a parking lot - still have mountain views)
