The food is not that great, so if you're looking for really good Mexican food go somewhere else and pass on this place.

Had a birthday dinner at Murrieta's last evening. There were 12 of us and they handled our crowd well. Great menu selections, excellent service and a nice atmosphere. The margaritas were excellent.

Also very good. Not overly seasoned or dry. The mild salsa/pico also excellent. The quality of this restaurant has been retained over a couple year period. A good indicator of... More

The spicy shrimp was delicious, and the other three people in the party enjoyed their dinners. Portions are large, and the atmosphere is inviting

I love their shrimp chile rellenos and mole sauce!! Margaritas are quite tasty as well! Its a great place to get dinner or lunch. More than enough to eat in a nice setting. Outdoor seating available some months. I recommend it!

We have eaten here several times and I have always enjoyed my meal. They have several choices that you don't get at every Mexican restaurants and I have really enjoyed their mole. They have excellent fresh chips and great salsa - including separate bowls of pico and a spicier salsa.
