The food is great, the waiters are very attentive to your needs. Always get plenty of food to eat. Only once was I disappointed, but the chef might have had an off night. Overall a great place to dine.

Tasty food. Large portions and at a very good price. Restaurant has a friendly Mexican family feel. Meals begin with fresh tortilla chips and fresh salsa.

This is a great place to get some darn good Mex/American food. The menu is huge, the service is beyond excellent, and all of the staff are friendly. They have a full service bar also. It's usually busy, but there is seldom a waiting line. Try it, you'll like. I eat here all the time, since I live in Waseca.

What a great deal for an inexpensive price. Four adult meals & 2 kids meals that were free for under $50. Service was great & very attentive to us considering the restaurant was packed. You won't go away feeling hungry. Taste was very fresh! Would eat here again when in town!

This is a quaint and comfy restaurant with great decor and excellent food. I had the chicken taco salad, my very favorite, served with green olives and white cheese sauce for dressing.

my wife and I visited our family in Waseca in June 2015, and had the opportunity to eat at El Molino. We were surprised by the friendliness of the attendants, the cleanliness of the place, the quality of the food, the size of the portions, and the affordable prices charged. If you go to Waseca, we recommend you stop here... More

We absolutely love this place, been going here for years, and we still stop here at least once a week. Best Mexican food around, and an unbelievable staff.
