We have been long time customers at Murillo's and we still are. The food is not exceptional but it is not terrible. I can remember when they only had the one restaurant on Merchant Street. The lines were very long and the food was absolutely worth the wait. We probably still go out of habit and because we like the... More

We are always trying new restaurants as we travel back and forth to Sacramento area - this one was on our list. Pros - very clean - easy off and on freeway - service was fine - prices reasonable. Cons - bland setting, chairs and tables are very dated - looks institutional. Food was just as bland - no flavor... More

Went to Murillo's for the first time in 20 years expecting what I hoped would be a great meal. Upon driving up there was a banner hanging outside the restaurant that boasted Voted best 2005-2015. Well obviously something's happened. We arrived a little after 1:00 so lunch crowd had already left. Must have been really busy as our server seemed... More

My wife and I stopped there yesterday for dinner. We were early for dinner, and the place was not well-occupied, though when we left (6:30-ish), it was comfortably full. I ordered a cheese enchilada/chile relleno combo plate. The enchilada was fine (as were the rice and beans). But the relleno was basically awful. The filling was spongy, and the batter... More

There are two Murrillos restaurants in Vacaville. This was the first one open. It's smaller than the second one but seems to have more of a cozier hometown feel. The food here sometimes seems better than the other one two and more consistent. The Paco Special is my favorite menu item but huge so you can order a half order... More

We were looking for a place for dinner close to our motel. This was within walking distance and ended up being very good Mexican food and good service

My wife and I stop in here at least twice a month. Staff always attentive and pleasant. Quick service but never rushed. The food is consistently served hot and freshly made. One of our favorites is the avocado tostada. Muy Bueno.

This was my first time at this restaurant, but I can assure you I'll stop again when I'm in town. The wait staff here are very attentive and do a good job. The food is outstanding and has great flavor. You won't go wrong stoping here.

Ok, I have tried Murillo's on E. Monte Vista 3 different times. I wanted to make sure it wasn't some crazy one time bad experience... it wasn't. The food is not authentic WHAT-SO-EVER, the service is never great, and honestly.. it's not very clean :/ It's usually freezing in there as well. (bring a sweater) I have had the fajita... More

We ALWAYS enjoy coming to Murillo's! If you like quick service and friendly staff, delicious food and a fabulous bar, Murillo's is for you! We often come here with the kids on weeknights because the weekends are usually very busy. We are always greeted after entering the front door and seated within a few minutes. The chips and salsa are... More
