Everyone in my family, kids and adults, loves Don Marcelino's. From the tacos to the burgers to the margaritas, we've loved everything we have tried. They have good specials, as well.

More Mex and less Tex. This place obviously is influenced by people who learned how to cook in Mexico, and the Tex-Mex is less here than other places. It has bit of authentic Mexican atmosphere, and really first-rate service. Pros: -Good food, with more Mex and less Tex -Friendly service -Tries hard for Mexican atmosphere -Family friendly Cons: -A bit... More

Expected better. Reminded my of a frozen TV dinner. Not a very clean place either. There has to be better Mexican food in Del Rio.

I was brought here while visiting from out of town. The staff were friendly. I had the eggs and chorizo which was okay. Nothing special. I did have to ask for a coffee refill. Bathroom was very clean. A big plus for me. I would try other places in town for a comparison.

The only time I come here is to get breakfast tacos. They are very good. However, the salsa is very watery. Sometimes it feels like you are pouring water on your taco. The service is not really that great.

I drove all the way from San Antonio to Del Rio to see the Seminole Canyon pictograph paintings and we decided to go eat at Del Rio during Cinco de Mayo. We are close to the Border what better place to eat Mexican food... Wrong! You know the saying about assuming! We walked into Don Marcelino's and first thing you... More

Fantastic short ribs. Plates are piled high. Every plate that passed by my table looked good. Not very expensive, very much worth it.

Friendly service and really tasty food. We've been here before on visits to Del Rio and the quality remains top-notch. Good quality Tex-Mex food. We'll be back next time we're in town.

3.5 stars really, good food but some items were a little bland... Nothing a little salsa can't fix. Chips were a bit too thick but that's ok - had more room for the hearty portions on my carne asada. Green enchiladas very tasty as were the refried beans. Counter service place with a nice gift shop. Good stuff!

You order at the counter, seat yourself a and get your own drinks. OK with me. No tip. Had rojo taco dinner special @ 1/2 price so ordered 2. Good thing I did. Plates and food room temp. Refried beans are great! Tacos tiny, meat is blah. Wife had enchilada dinner. Bland. Not bad, okay? You could do better at... More
