Murrieta's is the only place I've found that has potato taquitos like the ones I used to be on the street corner in Mexico City. Yummy and inexpensive and the staff is always cheerful and attentive.

The menu is extensive and includes some truer Mexican items not seen and many Reno establishments. The food servers are experienced and you typically have Pico and hot sauce along with chips at your table within a short time of sitting down.

I wish I remembered our server's name. He was so friendly and helpful as well as quick. We all enjoyed our meals. I had the pork tamale, my dad had fajitas and my mom had a burrito. The meals were huge and tasty.

The food is amazing! Great patio seeing as well. The service is very slow so don't go if you have some place to be. The whole staff is very friendly, especially the bartender. Great happy hour too. You can't beat 2 for 1 margaritas and $1 tacos!! And they're great margaritas and tacos too

This one of mine and my wife's favorite authentic mexican restaurants. It has a nice atmosphere, the food is always well prepared and plenty of fit. The prices won't break your wallet and if you get there at he right time ( before 5 ) and it's 99c tacos and 2 fer drinks.

Thank Larry W
