The menu is local Mexican food. The meat was over cooked and the cheese fondue was not very melted. The shrimp cocktail was nice and so was the milanesa. They only take cash.

I am in Creel with a tour group once a year for usually two days. We eat all our meals at Tio Molcas. I love this family owned restaurant where the service and the food is always consistently good. I so look forward to having Sopa Azteca. We had a small gathering in the back room with some Tarahumara youth... More

This was a small restaurant with reasonable food and the service was really fast. It seemed that no sooner had we ordered our food than it arrived. The food was reasonable quality and we had no complaints.

Traditional regional food, friendly service. Nice flavors, do not expect international dishes, but you will taste Chihuahua's home cooking, ask for tortillas de harina yum! Good prices!

A friend and I ate here and both found our dishes extremely bland. We were the only ones in the restaurant and the waitress just sat at the desk the whole time and any time we needed something we had to go ask her. Finally, when we paid the bill we waited for about 10 minutes for her to bring... More
