“Family run restaurant is an institution in area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Good real mexican style food, Not your typical fast food mexican or chain style food. Fresh home made salsas , etc. Second generation owner very friendly and fun. Bit lippy, just the way I like it.

“Not worth the stop”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Cramped, expensive, no beer or wine. They want me to write at least 100 characters so I'll keep writing until that happens.

“Great Tex-Mex”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Grace's has been around for decades. It's unassuming, the food is great, so is the price, and the portions are huge!

It's not very large, so there is often a wait.

This place has been a part of the community for SO LONG that when the owner announced her retirement, the community rose up in arms to ask her not to!

“Authentic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Sampled at the Steele County Fair: the food was tasty but I thought a little greasy. Husband agreed. However, based on the line waiting to be served, we might be off base. Again, very tasty.
