Mediocre place

Went to this restaurant for a birthday celebration. The service was fine and waitress is very nice. The food is mediocre, it is not bad but nothing special. Chips and salsa are not homemade :( The building and interior are outdated. Probably will pass this place next time.

I hate to have to write this review. We have gone to Marcelita's literary since it opened. We moved away but always would look forward to eating there again when visiting in the area. We truly considered it the best Mexican restaurant anywhere in the country and told everyone just that. We ate there during June 2014 and were devastated... More

Gross! Went for lunch with co-workers and got the chicken quesadilla. The chicken smelled bad and tasted worse. There were flies everywhere inside as well. We went around noon and the place was empty which should have told us something

Returned to the Cleveland area after 25 years away...one of my fondest memories was Marcelita's restaurant. What a treat it was to go have some authentic Mexican food and used to wait a couple of hours to just get in!! Now it is a sad, smelly (mildew??) place. The food was frankly awful!! Bag chips and jar salsa that was... More

I don't like overly spicy foods so I explained my tastes to the server, Wendy. She assured me the chef would make my selection just the way I liked it. I pass on some of the ingredients in my steak burrito and have them placed on the side in case I get creative and courageous. No problem at Marcelita's. My... More

Above average Mexican dishes. We both had the seafood chimichanga and it was good, although not quite what we expected since it was a tad dry. The filling was great. The beans and rice were very good and the chili con quest dip was excellent. Lots of food.

This used to be the best in the area. When I was a child, my family would drive from 45 minutes away just to eat here. Long waits (for no apparent reason), poor/unresponsive service, cold food are just the beginning of my complaints. To top it off, the food just isn't good. And to top it off even more, the... More
