I arrived in Newark late on a Sunday night after a full day of travelling and was just looking for someplace that was still open, frankly. This restaurant was close to my hotel, and was going to be open just a little longer, so I decided to give it a shot. I was pleasantly surprised. In my experience, Mexican restaurants... More

It is not great but good for occasional change. Margrittas were good and made to requested specifications. Vegetarian appetizers and entrée were good and piping hot. Salsa and chips were authentic. We had visited on busy Thursday evening. The only downside was service. There were only 2 servers and one supervisor helping as part server on customers count of like... More

If "authentic" refers to the people who work here, yes, but what I can tell you about my experience is this. First, the food was just okay, lacking depth of flavor. Ingredients were just dumped together maybe hoping for the best. The corn tortilla was not as fresh as what I would expect if a business was turning over product... More

We where a party of 7 and we all enjoyed our dinners. The drinks where very good both regular and alcoholic. The steak and shrimp dinners where large enough that we shared. I had thought that Guacamole came with the dinners bit i was wrong a sur charge of 1.50 was added to the bill, and the 3 flour tortillas... More

This destination is simple and authentic. If you like real Mexican food, come to this place. It is genuine as only a very few "Mexican" places are. Excellent choice for good food.

I LUV Mexican food and this place was recommended. I wanted to like it. I should have stuck with http://www.eltapatiodelaware.com/ which doesn't disappoint. Reading Al_from_WilDel 's review I ordered the enchiladas in mole sauce. I was hopeful because the salsa and chips were outstanding!! Fresh, chunky and the best we've had locally. But the wait for food was so long... More

I recently are here again after having been away for a while. I had enchiladas in mole sauce. They do have the best mole sauce in Delaware. A very good place to eat. Better than those national fast food chains by a large margin.

Morelia has incredibly delicious authentic Mexican food at a very reasonable price. Each meal comes with rice and beans and tastes great. If you like guacamole, they make it fresh and it is wonderful. My favorite is the fajitas, the portion is very generous so there is always some to take home for the next day.
