I ate here this trip. Nice waitresses. Great Mexican food. You can sit out on the covered patio if it's. Nice weather. Walking distance from the Budget Inn.

I ate here twice because a friend knows the cooks but I got the same thing twice, grilled chicken salad and both times it was dry, no flavor to it and the dressing was bad. Won't ever return again.

My husband and I decided at last minute to have a Mexican dinner. La Morenita in the late afternoon had just a few customers so we were able to order & get our meal quickly. Also, at that hour there was plenty of parking. They...More

This place is very hard to find on a one way street, but worth it! No atmosphere, but the service and food made up for it. Waitress brought us some nachos for free while we were waiting for our dinner.
