I think the restaurant may have one time been very good. I think the owner is an active part of the community so there are a lot of city-oriented events held there. Having said that, the ambiance is really the only thing that is above-par here. The food was not really fresh. The service was terrible. There were very few... More

This is a very busy restaurant with lots of history in the city of Orange. The food a standard menu for a California Mexican restaurant. The margaritas are nice. The plates are large. I ordered 2 tacos ala carte. They were huge and I ended up taking one home. Would strongly encourage you to see if a patio table is... More

Was in the area visiting family and decided to give this place a try. Nice outside patio area, perfect to enjoy a meal. We were a bit concerned when we first walked in since we were the only Mexicans in the place, but I must say we were pleasantly surprised. The food was actually not bad at all and the... More

The beautiful patio was misleading. We had driven by numerous times, always meaning to stop in and eat. I think they cater to large parties for celebrations. The food was not good and very overpriced. Service was skechy

I was part of 2 couples that went here last Sunday for dinner. I had a steak and shrimp. The steak was so thin it wouldn't matter how you ordered it, it was over cooked. My friend had fajitas that were bland as all get out, not sizzling. All in all, I think only one of us was happy about... More

I would LOVE to love this place-- the building and grounds alone are worth it. It is an historic building with an old brick patio and 70 year old trees. It would be my idea of heaven IF the margaritas and guacamole were good. I have to say, we had good service there, but come on-- a Mexican restaurant without... More

If you want a delicious, tasty, and authentic Mexican meal in the city of Orange, go to Moreno's. It's a bit of a drive for us, but WELL WORTH IT. You can tell a place by their chips and salsa, and theirs is the best. I also get the arroz con pollo or carnitas and they are always fantastic. Their... More

We love Moreno's and especially their "Taco Tuesdays". We go several time a month and love to invite friends to go with us to enjoy the time and good food. My wife always orders two of the tacos and I usually get one of their pork tamales. Other dishes are great but these are our favorites. Sitting outside is a... More
