Great authentic Mexican food in a traditional setting. Great service, and atmosphere. The food is delicious with authentic flavors. I had excellent tacos with all the trimmings. They have a full bar and the margaritas looked great as well. Definitely recommend.
I hadn't eaten at Murrieta's in a long time, so I was happy when friends invited us there for dinner. The margaritas are huge, which often signals they will be weak, but these were strong and tasty. The waiter provided both red and green salsa...with their chips. Both had very good flavor, with just a little heat. My go-to dish at Mexican restaurants is chile verde, and Murrieta's didn't disappoint. In fact, it was the best version of that dish I've had in many years. A couple of my companions were equally impressed with the chicken enchiladas, which you can request to have served with dark mole. The restaurant is located a little ways outside San Diego, but it was packed, with a nice lively vibe. Music played all evening, but not too loud for conversation. We were too full to order dessert. Maybe next time.More
My husband and I always rate Mexican restaurants by 3 items. Their salsa, their guacamole and their Margaritas. The 2 salsas we got with our chips were very flavorful and not too spicy. I even loved the flavors of their pickled carrots they served! Their...guacamole was good, but not great. Our pitcher of premium Margaritas were strong and delicious! The waiter was awesome and did not leave us unchecked for long periods of time. My husband had the chicken Mole and it was so good. It is probably the best mole we've had at any Mexican restaurant so far. Yummy! The atmosphere is festive and lively and the outdoor seating looked nice, had we been able to sit there, but there was some kind of event going on the day we went. We love this place and will eat here again!More
Customer service is amazing here. Great drinks and authentic Mexican food. Truly a hidden gem away from it all. Highly recommend. Big menu with lots of great choices. The churros with ice cream and caramel is yummy and a hot with the kids. Churros are...filled. Yumm!! Mole is very good and authentic tasting. We were always going to Old Town for great tasting Mexican food but I would pick this instead. Enjoy!More
We have been dining at Murrieta's since it opened almost 35 years ago. The food is great and the staff is friendly. Although we now live in the Midwest, we get back to Bonita at least twice a year, and a meal at Murrieta's is...always a must.More
I continue to bring out-of-town guests to Murietta's and they like it as much as I do when dining here myself. The menu is a large and varied one, and the portions are ample and satisfying. Every dish I've had here has been good, from...breakfast, to brunch to full dinners, and served in a friendly manner, whether in the dining room or bar, which never gets too loud or rowdy, even with sports on the TVs. Parking's never a problem and the prices are right, especially with the coupons from the local flyers. Really one of the better Mexican restaurants in the South Bay, and one of the nice things about living here.More
Our family loves Mexican food! This restaurant popped up with our internet search for Mexican place close to our hotel in Chula Vista for dinner. I would definitely give overall a “medium” rating. It was a little more expensive than I thought and the portion...was small.More
