If you are looking for great family friendly Mexican restaurant look no further. Been a couple times and have never been disappointed. Great value and great food. Roberto

Since it was my first time at a Mexican restaurant I don't really have anything to compare it to -- I don't count Taco Bell as a Mexican restaurant ;) I went with 3 girlfriends, we got there around 6:30 on a Saturday night, the parking lot was packed but there weren't too many people waiting inside.. they told us...

I live in Hudson and have been to Marcelita's once. I ordered the chicken soft taco's and they were horrible. The chicken tasted like it was boiled in dirty water. I couldn't even finish my meal. After speaking with the waitress, her comment was, " I always tell people to stay away from the chicken", you should have ordered the... More

Waiter was very good. That said The food was heavy and not very tasty. I told this to the waiter, and he said he hears that all the time. Not even good chips and salsa. Appetizer was burnt on the edges. Enchilada was so bad I left it on the plate. I am giving up on this place.

I haven't been here in over 20 yrs and it is just like I remember. I came with my parents when I lived in Hudson all the time and I always got the same thing. This time with more of an adult palate, I got the chimichanga, and they didn't disappoint. The chips and salsa were just like I remembered...very... More

I went here with a group of people. Ok, the salsa and chips are my favorite part- not here ! The salsa was horrible! Had a weird flavor. The food I ordered was just ok. Small portions and too expensive for what you get. Not worth it at ALL. Go to Nuevo Acapulco instead. WAY better in every way.

Had passed this place for years but had never eaten here until recently. Service was prompt and the host, waiter and waitress were very friendly. Food was not bad but lacked the flavor you expect at many Mexican restaurants.(Chicken fajitas didn't seem like they were grilled and came out at normal temp - not sizzling like at other places.) about...

Our last dinner here was probably one of the best, if not the best we have had at Marcelita's in years. The Chicken Fitijas came out sizzling away that made you excited to dig in knowing everything was as hot as it could possibly be. And it was good. Chicken was tender and still moist with nice char markings. Rice... More

This is a northeast Ohio classic. It has delicious, affordable food and is exceptionally reliable. We have had great meals there for about thirty five years with never a disappointment. The service and atmosphere are great. This is our "go to" spot for Mexican style comfort food. It never fails to lift our spirits.
