Tons of food!

Reasonably priced with huge platters of food! Friendly staff and cute atmosphere. We will be going back to McMinnville frequently and have put this place on our radar to frequent again. Plus, the margarita was super! Go wild and get the large!

In town on a stop over, we decided on this restaurant for dinner. Great choice! I had the prawns wrapped in bacon and cheese and my husband had seafood enchiladas. Both meals were tasty, more than plentiful and the price was excellent value for what we ate. Our server was pleasant and joked around with us, which made our meal... More

Searching for a quick dinner, we stumbled into Los Molcajetes. It is definitely a Mexican restaurant with staff, food selection and decor immersing you in the culture. The food selection was much like being in Mexico and all was good. The staff are efficient and attentive even tho we were one of only a few "English" couples there. Want Mexican... More

Having traveled extensively in New Mexico and Texas, as well as in Mexico itself I can say that Los Molcajetes serves good, authentic Mexican food at a very reasonable price. We were here for a mid-week lunch and sat at a very comfortable table on their shady patio. I had a lunch burrito (which was more than I could eat)... More

The restaurant does its best to appear and feel authentic but the food is your average Mexican fare. The chips and salsa were good but the food didn't stand out for me as much as I had hoped. Still a decent spot, just don't expect to have your socks knocked off. The menu here may actually be too big.

This is my goto Mexican Restaurant in McMinnville. I always get extremely good service, and the staff is always very attentive. They are always busy, chips and salsas come free and plenty of it. Great Margarita's, and very good Fajita's. It has a bar inside, with a small bar lounge that is separated from the main dinning area by a... More

We ate here for dinner. There are a few tables outside and booths and tables inside. Waitress was nice and attentive and service was fast but it was early so wasn't too busy. I had chicken enchiladas which were fine but the refried beans were runny and tasteless so I didn't eat them. My husband had a shrimp dish with... More

We went for dinner and had a great meal. My steak burrito was huge and delicious. My partner's combination meal was on a gigantic plate and full of good food. We both enjoyed our meals. The service was mediocre. A large group came in & we lost the waitstaff's attention. We finally had to track someone down to pay our... More

We came into town on a Monday, mid-afteroon, and found most of the restaurants in town were either closed for the day or did not open again until 5pm. Los Molcajetes, however, was open, and we enjoyed the sidewalk seating (indoors seemed rather dark, on a beautiful, sunny and warm day). The burritos and enchiladas were just fine, but pretty...

Greasy and bland, beer and staff were was nice but wouldn't recommend. Had the chicken fajitas and it was served swimming in grease. The lettuce as slimy and rice was cold. Had a couple bites but sent it back as it was pretty awful.
