This restaurant doesn't look like much. It's in a shopping center. Don't let that fool you. The food has ruined me from all other Mexican food. It is delicious. The portions are huge. After eating here I can't go to a chain Mexican restaurant. Nothing...More

It appears that the owner is host, cashier and server. Had to wait to be seated in an empty restaurant. Service very slow. Had tacos and enchiladas. Nothing special.

Mediocre at best. Salsa was puréed tomatoes no onions or peppers. Enchiladas were ok, and found myself eating just beans because it was the only thing with any spice or seasoning.

We moved here from Texas and had tried many Mexican restaurants but found none as good as back home until we found Cecilia's. So good! While we completely respect their choice not to be open on Sunday, we always wish they were because we eat...More
