Great food, if they had soup for dinner I would of given them 5 stars. They always run out of soup by dinner time. I mean every evening. Which is odd.

Love their shrimp enchiladas with rice and beans, rice is very flavorful I also get an guacamole taco very good, Madori margarita are very tasty here if you like that kind of drink. It's somethings different from the original margaritas. Has a very large menu somethings for everyone .

My friends an dI ate here last week. Fantastic food! They put cheese on their burritos! I say that because so many have cut down on the small things that are served with the meals.

Every time I visit La Morenita, I wished I lived closer. Tasty combination plates, good salsa and excellent customer service.

Can't understand why three waitresses were all taking their breaks at the same time, on their cells too, eating, while several customers still there/arriving. Chips and Salsa served okay, better than average, no salsa bar. Nice decor, but dated. No carpets, tile floor, which is nice, cleaner! Flavorful shrimp fajita, well marinated, a 7.5-8.0 on the food/chips, overall.

It tasted fishy. Like dirty pond water. When I got the waiters attention and informed him of the nasty taste his response was... More

Went here for Valentine's Day. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. What else can I say but this was a 10 plus dinner. Can't wait to come again.
