This is a well equipped Mexican restUrNt. Very nice staff the food is good and one of the best margaritas ever. Even better than Mexico. Family oriented and very untuned with special requests for those of who need no cheese or extra sour cream. Eat Local it's great

I had eaten there many times. No exceptional wait staff. One thing that I thought was unsanitary was big rugs or blankets on the tables. they don't change them after someone eats on it and it's just gross. would never sit at those tables. But the really big thing for me was the time I went there and found a... More

I've eaten several times at Molcajetes restaurant and probably will do so again. They offer a broad menu of Mexican food, which is good but not exceptional. It has a wonderful location, right in the middle of old town McMinnville, on 3rd street, and in the warmer months, outdoor seating is available.

With a few limited options for this style of food in town, we have been in a couple time. I feel the same each visit. The food is ok. The service is ok. The atmosphere is ok. I love Mexican food, and having grown up in other areas with more authentic options, it is hard to love this place. But... More

We toured the area all day and ended up having dinner here on a Saturday night. Had a salad and a shrimp burrito and both were very good. Husband liked the margarita. It was a little quiet for a Saturday, but the atmosphere was nice. Lots of staff around to help.

My mom loves coming here as she always gets what she wants and never complain. We love coming here when we want our Mexican food fix when we don't want to make it ourselves. Great fast service for lunch and great lunch specials. A place to come back to try more on the menu.

A bit dark and dingy. Service was ok. Food was mediocre. Not bad, but I would pass unless you just have to have Mexican. Just don't expect too much.
