Salsa & chips were good. Margarita not so much...odd taste...other food was ok. Said it was authentic Mexican but not sure. Restaurant was dirty and old but if the food is great... we like those kind of places. Service was very slow. Dessert was awesome!

We were not very pleased with the food here. The “ground beef” is more of a canned chili consistency, which was a surprise and disappointment. The fajita beef on the Morales trio was tasty, but the chicken was a little odd to my tastes. Though...More

The sign says Casa Morales at 1001 S 1st. My better half rates the relleno the best she's had in Lufkin, our daughter was pleased with a spinach enchilada, and I found the beef tacos satisfying. Very casual vibe (1950's diner?). Friendly staff.

Still enjoying Morales after many years. Food is consistently tasty, and service with a smile is tradition. Select the New Mexican Plate or Cheese Enchiladas, and you will leave full!

Great food, GREAT frozen margaritas (go for the big one!). The pricing was very reasonable for the amount of food given, and the food was yummy and homemade tasting.

Have loved New Mexican entree, chips and salsa, and iced tea forever. Service is good and quick. Main advantage is in and out feeling full and at reasonable price in 20-30 minutes.

The best chips and salsa in town. I have tried most of the items on the menu and they are all excellent!
