I have eaten here several times too many with a friend who loves to eat here and orders the same thing every time. The waiters know exactly what to bring her when she sits down. I have struggled to find anything that I thought was worth coming back for over and over. The food is bland with not a lot... More

I'vue been eating at Morales' for years and years. It has remained consistently good all these years. The location in Redland is just as good and sometimes even better than the downtown Lufkin location. Being from Nacogdoches, that makes a for a shorter drive. While the service can be iffy at times, they are extremely friendly and the food makes... More

Morales is a family owned and operated restaurant. I have been eating there for as long as I can remember. It is authentic Mexican food. It's located right on highway 59 between Lufkin and Nacogdoches. Some of the items on the menu are named for the customers that like to eat them.

We usually eat at the Morales in Redland, which in my opinion is better than the restaurant of the same name in Lufkin. I believe the Lufkin branch has changed some recipies, not as good as in years past, but the Redland restraurant will blow your socks off with their outstanding salsa & chips, the refried beans are to die...

Had the Enchilada Plate and Tea... It was ok. Just OK. The rest of our group had Tamales. I tried one and thought it was a better than average Tamale. Service was EXCELLENT. I'd go back..

There is nothing at this place that would make it worth a second visit. Even chain restaurants are head and shoulders above this place. Gloppy flavorless goo. Avoid this one.

After reading the reviews here, I decided to give the place a shot. My son and I drove up to the restaurant and could not find a place to park. GREAT sign that this is a popular place. I drove a quick errand and came back finding parking. I was surprised, walking in and seeing cheap tables and hardly any... More
