We have made special trips to Owatonna just for Grace's. We live an hour away. The burritos are huge. Cindy Nachos are simple, but yummy. Kids options are good. Not overpriced.

They have really good authentic Mexican food. They were rated for having the best burritos in MN. Everything there is home made and really good. A very friendly and cute atmosphere

After years of hearing the hype about this place I finally made managed to make my way here. The place is rundown and super crowded with tables. There is hardly room to get to your table its so congested. The food reminded me of taco day at school with mushy bland taco meat. The beans were flavorless as was the... More

A few months back we saw on WCCO that Graces was voted "Best Nachos in MN" so we waited for the "buzz" to die down and picked last Saturday for the 1 1/2 drive to check out, Graces.

We saw on a news feature that Cindy's Nachos were the "Best Nachos in Minnesota", so we did a day trip from Rochester to shop at Cabela's and lunch at Grace's. Trying the Cindy Nachos was worth the trip and we enjoyed our main entrée- a burrito and a chimichanga. The food is fresh, simple, reasonably priced, and a filling... More
