Outstanding TexMex....and I've eaten it for years. Large selection of choices....including size of the margaritas (which were very good) and they were willing to make a substitution on a dinner. Delivery of the meal was a little slow but the restaurant was packed and full of happy customers. The food was excellent, fresh and not greasy so they were easy... More

Their food is great and well priced! Get the chicken fajitas Chilpolte.... Mmmmm... They are building a new restaurant site which will have a much improved atmosphere!

First trip to this little strip-center Tex-Mex restaurant. Lots of families and big groups, warm and comfortable. Most of the food was pretty good. Some exceptions, and I wouldn't make a special trip from Austin (especially since they have branches closer in), but still worth going back.

Our family had one of the best Tex-Mex meals ever at this unpretentious restaurant. I would recommend it as a side trip from Austin, just for the genuine homestyle flavor.

Best Mexican food by far in town! They have some of the best fajitas and rice. I'm not a rice lover either. Also the fajitas aren't your average ones. They are creamy and come with mushrooms and bell peppers.

Every time we visit Morelias, we love the fresh chips and salsas. My favorite is the green sauce. The torillla soup is warming and full of fresh tomatoes, onions and mushroom; not to mention the cheese. Great flavors and always fresh.

Mexican food in Elgin is as good as the sausage in Elgin. Morelia's has really good Mexican food. It is fresh, flavor is great, good service, good prices. Clean and friendly place to eat.

We know Elgin is renowned for its bbq sausage, but there are also very good Mexican food restaurants as well. Morelia's is no exception. Plate for plate I would put their home style Spanish cuisine up against any of the other Central TX hot spots for this genre. The servings are plentiful, the prices are reasonable, and the tastes are... More
