I have this five stars because I had no compelling reason not to. Service was decent, salsa (not pick de gallo) had a decent kick to it, chips were good and food was fine. I had an enchilada combo that worked. Prices are reasonable l.

This place never lets you down.. Consistently pleasing, yummy Comida Mexicana! This is not a bold, risky cuisine, but perfection of the American version. We had salad, enchiladas, tacos and burritos, and no one wasn't pleased!

We were in Reno for a concert and wanted Mexican food for dinner. This restaurant had been recommended by family members. Certainly glad we followed their suggestion, the service was quick, we were promptly seated and our server was there very shortly. We requested more time to review the extensive menu.

Both of our meals were great! The price was reasonable and when our chips and salsa got low, they were there to replenish both. We both had water with our meal and they were there to refill our glasses every few minutes.

Food similar to other Mexican restaurants - somewhat Americanized. Some items more represented of "native" dishes. All employees appear of Mexican descent - we find a plus. Margaritas tasty however a bit weak Will return

Murrieta's is the only place I've found that has potato taquitos like the ones I used to be on the street corner in Mexico City. Yummy and inexpensive and the staff is always cheerful and attentive.

The menu is extensive and includes some truer Mexican items not seen and many Reno establishments. The food servers are experienced and you typically have Pico and hot sauce along with chips at your table within a short time of sitting down. The special margaritas are killer so be careful as just a few will make you wonder what you... More

I wish I remembered our server's name. He was so friendly and helpful as well as quick. We all enjoyed our meals. I had the pork tamale, my dad had fajitas and my mom had a burrito. The meals were huge and tasty.
