Had dinner here with some friends on a Sunday night, service was great,chips were a little thick and hard and the salsa is hot,ordered shredded beef enchiladas, cheese enchiladas, taco,salad and tacos. Enchilada sauce was a little on spicy side but other than that all the food was excellent.

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.

We've dined here several times the past couple years, when visiting friends in Sparks. My wife always orders the seafood enchiladas. Consistently Excellent! I ordered the machacas this last time. Also very good. Not overly seasoned or dry. The mild salsa/pico also excellent. The quality of this restaurant has been retained over a couple year period. A good indicator of... More

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!

We have eaten here several times and I have always enjoyed my meal. They have several choices that you don't get at every Mexican restaurants and I have really enjoyed their mole. They have excellent fresh chips and great salsa - including separate bowls of pico and a spicier salsa.
