We used to eat here all of the time. We stopped for a couple weeks but have recently come back to a lot of new faces, However, the food is still just as good as before. We will continue to make it a weekly visit.

This is by far the worst Mexican restaurant I've ever been to. The wait staff is slow and non attentive. There were 2 other tables in the restaurant when we came in, it still took 25 mins for our food. When it came out my chimichanga was sitting in a pool of grease and was cold. The white cheese dip...

The food is good, but the service was not. Our server forgot us and never refilled our drinks or checked on us in any way. We had to go to the check out counter to get our bill.

We looked online for a place to eat while traveling West. This was right off of 40 so we stopped and we were so glad we did. Had great food and the service was great. Would gladly stop again if we are in the area.

There are 2 Mexican restaurants on S Cumberland St north of I-40 at this exit. El Molino is farther north on the east side - the other is south closer to I-40 and on the west side. We prefer the food & service at El Molino. It's really fresh, served with a smile and great attentiveness - even when they... More

Last time we went there, it took an hour for our food to come out after it took us 30 to order. Meal came back with soggy chips. Fastest thing that came out was my son's hamburger and fries.

My family and I decided to try this restaurant. The food was excellent! I had the Hawaiian Fajitas. The flavor was unlike any other Mexican restaurant. All the ingredients must have been cooked individually then combined on the plate. Everything had it's unique flavor in the dish, but it all meshed well. Our service was wasn't as good as the...

It was three in the afternoon and only one other able. I don't know if our waiter was inexperienced, didn't care or baffled. We had a group of 6 adults and two five year olds. He finally came and took our orders. When he brought the food he didn't bring the children's simple tacos. He should have made sure he... More
