Impressive!

We were invited by friends. This place is beautiful. It reminded me of Las Vegas. Service was great. Food was great. No complaints. Good for couples, families or groups. They have excellent salsa, and the green avacado/jalapeno salsa. I can hardly wait to go back!

I used to patronize Morelia at the old location. While it had inconsistent service, my favorites such as the charro beans and chicken fajitas usually were acceptable. Now: New location down the road with a monstrosity of a sculpture blocking the majority of the parking lot including blocking unloading passengers at the front door did not bode well for the...

We had dinner here. The margarita was good, the chicken nachos were great! We had a couple of combo plates as well. I liked the beans, not the rice, the wife was opposite. Overall - above average, not that memorable. $30 for 3 people including everything though.

My husband and I had taken my uncle to dinner here while he was visiting from out of town. It took us a little bit once we were seated to get a server but finally a young lady did come to wait on us. We got our drinks and it was a while before the young lady came back to... More

Morelia's has a wide variety of items are their menu. We have never had any dish that was a disappointment. The meals are promptly prepared and service is attentive and efficient.

I was craving Mexican food today & since I live in Manor all the Mexican choices are absolutely the worst in the state. Upon reading reviews I decided to drive to Elgin rather than trek into Austin. Excellent decision. They bring a salsa & chips to the table as soon as you sit down. I ordered the cheese enchiladas with... More

Morelia's has very complete menu. Primarly a Mexican restaurant, they do have some American favorites. My favorite dish is Chili Delano with a deep fried avocado.

Always enjoy the Romano Fajitas, an excellant choice, also have tried the pasta dishes. Must not forget that the Large Margaritas topping off the evening with friends or a date. Their wait staff are always avaliable and the floor managers will go by to check that all is okay for the customer.

Food is good. About what you would expect Tex-Mex to taste. Oddly enough one of my favourite dishes is chicken penne pasta. Fast service which is a plus when dinning with a toddler. Always great service. Clean restraunt. Now my only complaint, is that when I leave I have to go home and wash my clothes because they stink!! This... More
