Nice people working and they served chips very quickly. We ordered chicken tacos and they were very tasty.

My family eats here about once a week. If the kids are given a choice, this is always where they want to go. The staff is super friendly, and they always know that I want a sangria. ;)

Love the food and service here. I take my wife to Molina's for lunch every Friday, and we have never been disappointed. Great selection of entrees at a great price.

This is mine and my husband's go to Mexican restaurant close to home! We always get great service and they have a dish with ground beef over French fries and its awesome! :) You have to try it.

We've tried several Mexican restaurants around the Furman/Travelers Rest areas and this the best one we have found. Good food and good margaritas. They get busy, which tells you others feel the same way! Prices are reasonable, portions are generous and food is pretty quick. Staff is friendly!

Molina's is our go-to place for Mexican. Food is always tasty, service is always good. Our waiter one time even spent time trying to make my son laugh (granted it was the slow time of day :))!

Sometimes Molinas gets very crowded and that is because it is so good. Worth the wait but choosing the time you go will help prevent the wait.
