We ate here with a fairly large group and the service was excellent. The restaurant was busy; other large groups and parties were going on, yet our server was always attentive. The food was good; my husband wasn't as happy with his as I was with mine, but I would definitely return.

My first time here. I was expecting it to be at least an average Mexican restaurant, and with the ratings I see here, I thought it would be better than average. Yawn. Bland, basic interior. service was fairly quick and they were fairly attentive. Not rude, but not friendly, either. The food was OK, again - no different than any other "authentic"-style place, and definitely not as good as a handful of others in the Owatonna-Waseca-Mankato area. The prices aren't too bad, but a tad on the high side for a basic, "authentic" place like this.

El Molino is one of the best Mexican restaurants at which I have eaten! A local favorite, the place is often full to capacity, but it's worth the wait. The Steak Poblano is AMAZING! The owner also own's Oscar's American Cafe, just down the road by Hy-Vee. Also a great place to eat :) If you are in town, you MUST eat here, at least once!

Recently relocated to Southern MN from Texas, and have been searching for AUTHENTIC Mexican food... finally found it at El Molino! My husband and I both had the steak fajitas. The meat was actually grilled, not stewed like most places up here do it. Flavors were good, restaurant was clean, service was great, and the staff was very friendly. Worth the drive from Mankato. We will only be coming here for Mexican food in the future!
