The Food is great, the Margaritas are the best.. Always enjoy setting outside. You are never rushed so you can visit with friends while enjoying one of their Margaritas..

Moreno's has delicious authentic Mexican cuisine on their menu. On weekends and special occasions, the mariachi players walk around to accept special requests from the diners. On Sunday brunch, there is someone making homemade tortillas in the old traditional style.

Love taco Tuesdays. A perfect tree lined outdoor eating area. Food is good and so is service. Has a separate area for banquets etc.

We love Moreno's and we REALLY love sitting outside in the early evening. A nice table in the corner, your sweetheart across the table, outstanding chips and salsa, and a cold beverage.... Do I really need to say anything else...???

They arent served sizzling to the table. The beans are watery and the rice was to salty. The taquitos were the same, just ehhhh.... Overall my rating should... More

We came here with some friends for Taco Tuesday. They were some decent tacos. For $3.95 you can choose from chicken, ground beef, or shredded beef. They have more choices for a higher price. The shells were a bit crunchy for my taste. But they were good.

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

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
