Excellent food. Very small place, atmosphere leaves a little to be desired but that is OK because the food is out of this world! Must have the nachos.

The dining area was small and the atmosphere welcoming. They have wonderful food and provided excellent service. Definitely plan on going back next time I'm in the area!

Growing up in Owatonna, Graces is a place I always like to visit when I can. It is only open W-Saturdays now and it is still the same place. Cindy nachos are delish and so is everything else. We were lucky to get a little love for our little guy after the lunch rush from Grace herself.

Grace's is a hole in the wall that my brothers found and recommended. It is not authentic Mexican but doesn't claim to be. What it is is great Tex-Mex food. My wife and I had dinner here after a long day on the road. She had a pulled beef chimichanga that was huge and delicious. I had a pulled pork... More

The place is rather small. the service and food is what you go there for. the cindy nacho's was voted on, as the best in Minnesota, by a twin city magazine. That is what I always get. no alcohol , so a coke is best for me. Always try and beat the lunch crowd in order to get a table..

This is a family owned restaurant cooking recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation. They do not take reservations and it is always full, so don't be surprised if you have to wait for a table. Everything on the menu is top-notch, but my favorite is the Cindy's Nachos. I am not the only one who loves... More

A must when in Owatonna. Only thing is they are only open Weds thru Sat 11-8. Homemade salsa several types. From mild to extra spicy! Cindy nachos are an absolute must! Great family owned business!
