We love El Molino!!! The food is always fast, hot and consistently delicious. The staff is friendly and helpful. It's usually busy but there is rarely a wait unless it's Cinco de Mayo.

I may be going here to often. When we show up, they walk us to the table we always sit at and they know what we want to order. But the food is good! I have tried a great deal of the menu and have never had a bad meal.

Sunday evening and it was not crowded so the waiter wanted our drink order before we got to sit down. The chips, dip, and drinks were brought quickly and we ordered. I had looked on their web site and saw Carne Asada but it was not on the menu so I asked and they fixed it. It was different from... More

Nice cozy restaurant with a friendly family-run feel. Big menu of standard Mexican American dishes. All were safe in terms of spicing. Wasn't disappointing but wasn't exciting either.

Great food, good drinks, and a good time. El Molino has it all. I've been assured that other items on the menu are good, but I always get the shrimp fajita nachos, because they are spectacular. It's really enough to share if you're sensible, but it's so good who cares about sensible? ;-)

Well once again using Trip Advisor has steered us to an experience! ! We were greeted upon entering, chips and salsa was placed at our table. We ordered a side of guacamole that was very good. My husband had a burrito that was a complete meal! I enjoyed an enchilada, taco and relleno that was good. Once again thank you... More

My husband and I ate here while passing through Memphis. I found the restaurant by looking on trip advisor reviews! It is about two miles off of I 40. The service was fast and helpful. Our server gave us great suggestions. The tortilla chips are good as is the salsa. We shared the mixed fajitas...beef, chicken, shrimp and Mexican sausage... More

My family has been addicted to the homemade Mexican food and family-oriented staff at this location for many years. It is really an excellent choice for Mexican food. Also, the price is right!

My wife and I have enjoyed going to El Molino for the past several years now - a good friend of hers recommended we go. Once we went, we got hooked - on the salsa, on the food, on the margaritas, the staff - you get the idea. Everything is scratch-made, and it all tastes great for that reason. You... More
