Great food with a patio feel. Fun to people watch and see people you know! The food is fast and great! Try the California Burrito!

Pretty good Mexican food this far from the border and in a mall. Carne Asada Burrito is spot on though I'd say the portion could be bigger. All in all worth it for Mexican in Albert Lea, MN

This is my favorite place for authentic Mexican food. Everything I've ever eaten here is fabulous. Great service and even better food at a good price.

Not only is the food fresh and homemade, the ribs are awesome! The owner visited with us and it was a pleasure to speak with him. The restaurant takes pride in their food and we've always had a fine dining experience when eating here. Also, try the ribs and french fries. They are so tender that you don't need a... More

This is a great authentic Mexican food restaurant, and I love their chicken enchiladas. They also have American food if you aren't into the Mexican food

Great enchilada sauce. Good salsa but a little heavy on the cilantro, not too spicy. Service was a little slow but everything else was just fine. Expansive menu including American fare.

We got into Albert Lea on a Sunday evening and needed dinner. Based on reviews, we decided to try this restaurant. We were not disappointed, so good! It is in a mall, but operates late, even until 9 on a Sunday. Our party tried quesadillas, the Morena Especial, and the Molcajete. Several unique dishes, some even have a grilled cactus... More
