Great food!

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... read 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

Too Much of my surprise...they Rocked it! We had Water's with Lemon and Coffees to drink. Recieved them in a couple of minutes from ordering. Then took our Lunch order when we received... More

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

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.
