We often stop here when in Tucson as it serves great Mexican food with a wide variety on the menu at reasonable prices. The staff has always been pleasant and the atmosphere is quiet enough that you can have a conversation without difficulty.

My family & I love this place for its fresh and authentic southwest flavors! Great for 1 person to 100 people... Their weekday lunch specials are awesome for the value, portions and quality of food! Wev'e never had a bad entree so far... EVERY location is wonderful to dine at because they are consistently delicious!! See you soon El Molinto's!

The service is good, the atmosphere fine and the menu typical...including tacos, burrito etc. A bit unusual is that you only get rice OR beans, guacamole is $2.50 and enchalda sauce and sour cream are also extra. My only severe critism of the establishment is that the women's restroom smells like a sewer. I was there one month ago and... More

The food was out of a can, the service was lousy & the waiter tried to keep $15.00 of our change as his tip! Never will go back & do not recommend.

I am sure there is better places than this. Everything was ok. Not bad but ok I have had better. Margarita's are nothing to write home about. The salsa is very flavorful that was probably the best thing on the menu

We dined here during our recent visit to Tucson. We went on the recommendation of the innkeeper at our B&B we stayed at. We had warm, prompt, and attentive service and were treated like family. The food was authentic, delicious, and in sizable portions. The tamales were outstanding as were the variety of tacos I ordered. My wife had the... More

My husband and I eat here all the time because the food is always fresh and the service is fantastic. Hands down the best margaritas in town as well as the best fajitas I have ever had.
