Decor is a bit mixed of traditional and more local items. Menu is extensive, and includes some very traditional items. We had Albondigas (large meatballs), Mole Enchiladas (very good) and mixed plates of tacos and enchilada dinners. Food is good, service is good.

The food is not that great, so if you're looking for really good Mexican food go somewhere else and pass on this place.

Had a birthday dinner at Murrieta's last evening. There were 12 of us and they handled our crowd well. Great menu selections, excellent service and a nice atmosphere. The margaritas were excellent.

The spicy shrimp was delicious, and the other three people in the party enjoyed their dinners. Portions are large, and the atmosphere is inviting

I love their shrimp chile rellenos and mole sauce!! Margaritas are quite tasty as well! Its a great place to get dinner or lunch. More than enough to eat in a nice setting. Outdoor seating available some months. I recommend it!
