“A great inexpensive restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise! The food was very good, the service was great, with a smile, the restaurant was nicely decorated and very clean and the price was extremely reasonable. They have a huge variety of dishes to choose from. Our waiter answered our questions and if he didn't know the exact answer, he found out and came back and told us. We left there very satisfied with some food left for a snack tomorrow. We definitely would go again.

“Best Fajitas Ever”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

In Geneva there are a lot of Mexican and Italian restaurants. El Molcajete is one Mexican worth your visit. The fajitas are fantastic, as is the service - you can tell they really care. It's just tasty, fresh of the grill food. Don't waste your time with any of the Mexican restaurants on any of the corners. This is the place to go.

“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

The food and service are consistently top notch! They provide generous servings, use the freshest ingredients, offer traditional and unique recipes, and I can`t get enough. Start with guacamole and chips, then choose your own delicious adventure!

*Bonus: Try the coffee, served in big, heavy mugs and lightly spiced with cinnamon...

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

This was our first time to this restaurant. We were greeted immediately with a friendly smile. It was on a Friday night so there was a bit of a wait. It is a very small place - seating 30-40 persons.Our waiter was friendly and helpful. We ordered the traditional margaritas which were very tasty. I ordered the carne asada torta. It was delicious but I thought perhaps there could have been some rice and beans on the plate. My husband ordered pork tacos - there were 3 small tacos on the plate along with a side of rice and beans. While the food was very good the portions were small. If you are really hungry you would be disappointed with the amount of food for the price. It is not economical.

“Awesome food & service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Go here! Guacamole is fresh and flavorful (even the chips are great)!

Whether you want traditional tacos & burritos or more unique flavors - this is the place to go!

Had beef tips, with bacon, peppers, melted cheese served with guac and toppings and flour tortillas to build the most flavorful soft tacos I've ever had!

Can't wait to come back!
