I've been going to Marcelita's for over 10 years. It was the number one place for me and my buddy to escape from our families, have some drinks and a great meal and then finish the night at the bar. Unfortunately, it's not even in our top 10 anymore. What happened? Last time we went, we were... read more

My wife and kids came to Marcelita's, expecting good food. Not the case here. We got chips and salsa, and the chips were really stale. Ordered queso blanco and got what looked like Velveeta and salsa. That was okay, but not what we ordered. Then came the entree... I ordered a chimichanga. Nasty. Should have known when we walked in... More

I recall coming here many years ago and liking the place. My wife and I visited recently and were very disappointed. Nothing was horrible, but it just all kind of mediocre. It was also a little sad and empty. There are so many mexican restaurants now, I don't know why you'd bother to come here.

Food is good and the margaritas hit the spot. Seems to a community favorite because we always see someone we know.

Went here last night for dinner with my husband. It's been a while since we have eaten here and we were surprised at how empty it was. Can't figure out why as we ordered the Valentines Day special and it was delicious! Drinks were yummy, food was tasty, service was attentive, and our dessert was so good! Plus it was... More

With zero degree temperatures, we decided to have a Mexican treat. $1 Tacos and Corona Lite beers. 6 Tacos with 2 beers and a generous tip ~ $20! The tacos were tasty as well as the chips and salsa (three flavors available). This deal is available Tuesday through Friday in the lounge.

I have been to Marcelita's before, for a taco night in the bar last Spring, marginal but it was Happy Hour and I didn't over think the toppings, fixin's, presentation or atmosphere, it wasn't going to be my primary meal. So when I needed to order dinner for take out I thought I would give it another try for a... More

I've been coming here for years. Personally I like going to the bar. The bartenders are friendly and efficient. Food is average Mexican. Nothing surprising, but always good.

My husband and I used to enjoy going to Marcelita's. Our absolute favorite is ElCampesino in Streetsboro but I had a buy one, get one coupon so we thought we would take advantage of it. Our first clue should have been that when we pulled into the parking lot on a Saturday night at 6:00, there were only a few... More

Been going to Marcelita's for over 20 years, but very sadly disappointed in the decline of the food. Server was slow, didn't pay attention to our requests, and was hard to locate when we wanted/needed something. Ordered a kids meal but our child never got her dessert. Ask for a box to take home the appetizer, never got one. Food... More
