“Authentic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Sampled at the Steele County Fair: the food was tasty but I thought a little greasy. Husband agreed. However, based on the line waiting to be served, we might be off base. Again, very tasty.

“Cindy Nachos are the BEST!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

This restaurant has the most amazing food and the homemade salsa.....many different types are wonderful. The Cindy Nachos are the best and they are famous county wide as they sell them at the Steele County Fair. I have never had anything there that I did not love. Their shredded beef taco salad is also wonderful. You gotta try it if you haven't already. Don't let the outside looks of the place scare you off. The food is GOOD!!!!

“Completely underwhelmed!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

Took a couple of business associates to Grace's due to the rating & on the recommendation of a couple of locals. Wow. I'm a fan of many types of foods & can literally enjoy just about anything but this place seemed like some sort of weird cafeteria food. Bland main courses of indestiguishable food. Everything had ground hamburger meat on it. $40+ for 3 people. Can't recommend this place at all.

“Great Service and Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

All the people at Graces are friendly. Cindy tries to talk to everyone, no matter how busy they are, and food is always great. You need a big appetite to finish most meals, or try the Half meal specials. Great prices.

“Excellent food, reasonable priced”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Local hot spot that makes authentic Mexican food. Cindy Nachos are very popular, a homemade tortilla chip with ground beef and cheese layered on top. Also serves hamburgers and grilled for the kids or those who just don't feel like Meixcan food. Only negative is that they are open only from Wednesday to Thursday.
