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.

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.

I like to stick with solid standards like chicken fajita tacos. They have a HUGE menu, and I think sometimes you may be taking risks. But for sure if you stick with tried and true Mexican dishes you want be disappointed. Not greasy and not salty.

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.
