I consider myself to be a connoisseur of Mexican food. I have eaten this type for 40 years. their food was a good as any I've had in San Antonio or anywhere else. I had carne guisada and it was excellent. Service was great and the margaritas were excellent. I will be a regular customer. Wow.

The Mexican food is the best in Elgin. The have awesome creamy chicken fajitas. I forgot the name of them but they are cooked with a type of Alfredo sauce, mushrooms, and grilled onions. And the primo plate is superb too. Everything is but these are our favs.

If you haven't been in awhile be sure to stop by because they have a full bar. And, their food is always warm and the staff are inviting and helpful.

We haven't ordered anything that we didn't love. Even my picky 6 year old loves their food. We love to go for all occasions. They definitely have the best fajitas around! Love the deep fried chicken avacado, fajitas mexicanas or picosas for the spicy food lover, and the chicken picante.

Morelia's is consistently voted by Elgin as the top restaurant in town. They earn it with super service and great food. Atmosphere is not a strong point, but that doesn't affect the food. The stuffed avocado meal is my favorite, though there is almost more than I can eat. The appetizer of stuffed jalepenos can be a meal by itself,... More

A favorite of Elginites for its variety. The Tex-Mex is very good, in fact, everything here is good and served consistently hot and quickly.
