Grandiose new building on 290 west in Elgin without the added effort in food preparation! Stopped this afternoon to try out their new place shortly after noon lunch rush. I ordered the mole chicken enchiladas and wife ordered the tortilla soup. My enchilada plate came out barely warm with the menu stated 2 enchiladas, charro beans and rice. The mole... More

Obviously, there's no lack of good Tex-Mex in this part of the world. Morelia's had very good food and service. What set them apart for me was the variety. I had a combo plate with spinach enchilada, chicken mini-quesadilla, beef flauta, guacamole, sour cream, rice, and beans for under $10 - plenty of food for two meals. The only reason... More

Since opening their new, much larger, restaurant the prices have gone up a bit. The food is very good... and the Mexican Martinis are to die for. Service can be slow at times so not the best place to go if you're in a big hurry. Overall, a good choice in Elgin. ..

My son was on a break from summer camp and we stopped for lunch. The fountain out front made for a great photo op, but the experience inside made it memorable. The Stuffed Avocado and the Chicken Picante were wonderful and the service was spot on. We enjoyed a relaxed and unhurried meal. I was happy to learn that they... More

Beautiful entrance to a nice little restaurant. No doubt there is something for everyone on their extensive menu. Nacho appetizer was good but a little heavy on the refried beans. Taco plates were awesome entrees. The flan and Sopapillas were an awesome finish. Service was good. Overall I would definitely recommend it.

From the moment I contacted the restaurant I could not ask for better service. I called the day before to reserve a table for 10 to 12. The manager told me to call back 30 minutes before you arrive to confirm. I gave her my name and that was it. The next day I called and we arrived at 7:30pm.... More

We were invited by friends. This place is beautiful. It reminded me of Las Vegas. Service was great. Food was great. No complaints. Good for couples, families or groups. They have excellent salsa, and the green avacado/jalapeno salsa. I can hardly wait to go back!

I used to patronize Morelia at the old location. While it had inconsistent service, my favorites such as the charro beans and chicken fajitas usually were acceptable. Now: New location down the road with a monstrosity of a sculpture blocking the majority of the parking lot including blocking unloading passengers at the front door did not bode well for the...
