I work with a Tucson native and asked for a dinner recommendation before my family and I headed to Tucson for Fall break. He said he and his family always eat at Molina's Midway when they go home to visit. I can see why. The service was friendly and efficient and the food was very good. My wife and I... More

Our second night visiting friends we decided to go to their favorite "standard" Mexican restaurant. The menu was full of the all the Mexican dishes you would expect to find, but they were very well done, generous in their portions and very reasonably priced. I have always liked chicken chimichangas and tend to order that dish my first time in... More

A casual restaurant where you can get a cheese crisp and a meal that is just like the last one you had there. Good Mexican food at a good price. The menu has a good variety of selections.

Molinas's personel from the host/hostess to the servers and management are extremely friendly and personable. The food is top notch and prices are not bad at all. It's a good choice.

Molina's Midway is a Tucson tradition. We visit about once a week with friends. It is a family friend low key old time restaurant. The food is predictable, but yummy. My favorite is the green chili plate with the Crazy Burrito not far behind. There is always a beer special which is a much less expensive alternative to the $3... More

This is one of those places that you would not know about unless someone told you about it. A local recommended it because it was family owned has been around for decades. Great Southwest and Mex food. We had 16 in our group, and as we were getting our orders taken, another group of 16 came in next to us.... More

My husband and I had noted that Molina's Midway Restaurant has been around for a long time and although we have our beloved Mexican eateries that are always great, we decided to give them a try. I wish we would have tried the ones we know and love. We were promptly seated and note several dining areas within the restaurant... More

While I will not claim Molina's is the BEST Mexican food, I will say it has been the most consistent in quality and service. To clarify, all Mexican food prepared for the general public has the same taste for me. I have found, over the last 15 years that I have never been disappointed with the quality or service our...
