What a great deal for an inexpensive price. Four adult meals & 2 kids meals that were free for under $50. Service was great & very attentive to us considering the restaurant was packed. You won't go away feeling hungry. Taste was very fresh! Would eat here again when in town!

This is a quaint and comfy restaurant with great decor and excellent food. I had the chicken taco salad, my very favorite, served with green olives and white cheese sauce for dressing.

We eat at El Molino way too often but we love the food and the staff so much we keep going back. I've tried a little of everything on the menu and I've only had one or two items that I've said "that was okay but....". Typically each item I've eaten is better than the next. I usually eat the...
