“The best authentic Mexican food in miles.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant specializes in interior cuisine. They achieve their goals. The meat is always moist and full of flavor, everything is freshly prepared, or left to mingle favors as appropriate. The service is always friendly and quick. They have a full bar. This place is popular enough at during busy periods parking can be a problem.

“Best fajitas in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

For years, we've frequented La Margarita in Round Rock for fajitas, but lately Morelia has become our go-to spot for nicely seasoned & charred beef fajitas, served with fresh tortillas and all the trimmings. This low-key restaurant offers quality tex-mex in other forms (enchiladas, etc.) but the fajitas are what keep us coming back. They offer beef or chicken fajitas with all sorts of different toppings -- my favorite being the basic kind with peppers and onions. You can easily have leftovers, especially after filling up on their two kinds of delicious table salsa (far better than the typical chips & salsa)!

The interior is a bit uninspiring -- with a bunch of mismatched floor tiles and painted murals on the walls -- but overlook that and enjoy the taste of authentic tex mex served by friendly staff. This is easy to find, right on highway 79, not far from either I-35 or the Dell Diamond. Fast service makes this a good lunch or dinner option, and they're accommodating of groups and kids as well.

“Great Tex-Mex in Round Rock”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

There are a lot of Tex-Mex restaurants in Round Rock, but Morelia's is one of the best. Good menu choices and great food. Their table salsas are unique and very tasty. You can't go wrong with their enchiladas. Friendly staff.

“Nice surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

We stopped by this one by chance, just passing through Round Rock. Its menu had some different choices than the usual and were very tasty. Staff was very attentive, and the service was fast.
