My son was on a break from summer camp and we stopped for lunch. The fountain out front made for a great photo op, but the experience inside made it memorable. The Stuffed Avocado and the Chicken Picante were wonderful and the service was spot on. We enjoyed a relaxed and unhurried meal. I was happy to learn that they... More

Beautiful entrance to a nice little restaurant. No doubt there is something for everyone on their extensive menu. Nacho appetizer was good but a little heavy on the refried beans. Taco plates were awesome entrees. The flan and Sopapillas were an awesome finish. Service was good. Overall I would definitely recommend it.

From the moment I contacted the restaurant I could not ask for better service. I called the day before to reserve a table for 10 to 12. The manager told me to call back 30 minutes before you arrive to confirm. I gave her my name and that was it. The next day I called and we arrived at 7:30pm.... More

We were invited by friends. This place is beautiful. It reminded me of Las Vegas. Service was great. Food was great. No complaints. Good for couples, families or groups. They have excellent salsa, and the green avacado/jalapeno salsa. I can hardly wait to go back!

I used to patronize Morelia at the old location. While it had inconsistent service, my favorites such as the charro beans and chicken fajitas usually were acceptable. Now: New location down the road with a monstrosity of a sculpture blocking the majority of the parking lot including blocking unloading passengers at the front door did not bode well for the...

We had dinner here. The margarita was good, the chicken nachos were great! We had a couple of combo plates as well. I liked the beans, not the rice, the wife was opposite. Overall - above average, not that memorable. $30 for 3 people including everything though.

My husband and I had taken my uncle to dinner here while he was visiting from out of town. It took us a little bit once we were seated to get a server but finally a young lady did come to wait on us. We got our drinks and it was a while before the young lady came back to... More

Morelia's has a wide variety of items are their menu. We have never had any dish that was a disappointment. The meals are promptly prepared and service is attentive and efficient.

I was craving Mexican food today & since I live in Manor all the Mexican choices are absolutely the worst in the state. Upon reading reviews I decided to drive to Elgin rather than trek into Austin. Excellent decision. They bring a salsa & chips to the table as soon as you sit down. I ordered the cheese enchiladas with... More

Morelia's has very complete menu. Primarly a Mexican restaurant, they do have some American favorites. My favorite dish is Chili Delano with a deep fried avocado.
