“Initially very good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2011 via mobile

Slight downturn in the quality of beef used in their food. One probably will find their non-beef dishes very good.

“The most popular restaurant in Waseca....for good reason”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but follow the old maxim to "Eat where the locals eat "- El Molino. As a local, and with all due respect to my many other favorite places in town, and my friends that run them, El Molino is our favorite and go-to spot for family meals, celebrating, and entertaining out of town guests. A wonderful family operation, El Molino has earned its popularity in Waseca. Just about any night of the week you will find the 200 block of North State Street in Waseca, and the empty lot across the street, full of cars. Out-of-owners should know that they are all there for one thing -- El Molino. Probably the only place in town you will wait for a table, though never for long, and rumor has it they have plans to expand. Fresh food, friendly and attentive service, full bar, extremely reasonable prices. Last recommendation -- the Molcajete is bar none, hands down, the best meal in town. A bubbling cast iron "pig pot" of.....hey, I'll let you discover it for yourself. Mucho bueno.
