This long established restaurant by the Molina family is one of the best Mexican restaurants. Their food is excellent and there are a number of heart healthy choices on the menu. Service is good. No reservation except for large groups. Very busy on Fridays. I have eaten there many times and have never been disappointed!

Visited Molina's Midway with a group of friends this past Friday evening. The place was very busy, but we had reservations for our 12 people. Happy Hour lasts until 6 pm, so we were able to order a couple of rounds of drinks for discounted pricing before 6. The margaritas are great!! Had a plate of enchiladas - they were... More

I want to take a moment and write a wonderful endorsement for Molina’s Midway Mexican Food Restaurant. This was my mother’s favorite restaurant, and when I needed to pick a spot for a memorial luncheon in her honor it was the obvious choice. The service for my party of 17 by Angel was top notch, and the food was delicious,... More

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
