“New owership - Still trying to establish a "new" identity”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

We have been faithful customers of Morelia's for years. We still go there regularly, but with the change of ownership at the first of 2013, the restaurant is going through a difficult transition as it tries to establish a new identity while maintaining some sense of its "roots."
The food quality is sometimes inconstent-- a ground beef entree is great one night, then so greasy it's sent back to the kitchen the next time.
The family of Morelia's customers needs to be patient. I think the new owners are on the right track, and I know they are working hard to make Morelia's the best Mexican eatery in town.
Unfortunately, for now, Morelia's is only "average". Keep coming, and provide the management constructive input to help them make the restaurant better.

“Morelia's - good food - family restaurant”
Reviewed 30 April 2013

Although Morelia's was more Tex-Mex than authentic, it was what we wanted. Based on the amount of customers, it is well liked by families as well as couples and singles. Full bar, large dining "hall" good service and fresh food. We had a Steak Fajitas and a Chicken Quasadilla which came with side rice and beans and chopped lettuce, guacamole and sour cream. If you like Tex-Mex and friendly service, and you don't feel like dressing up, you can go to Morelia's and enjoy!

“.. always good food and value for money!...”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

.. We eat at Morelia's at least twice a month! We love their drinks , service and menu. It is not overly complicated, and their combination dinners are excellent choices. It is a family restaurant and the service is very attentive as well. We have had consistently good meals there. Judi Dunn

“Unique atmosphere and consistently good Mexican food”
Reviewed 10 September 2011

Morelia's Mexican restaurant consistently received "Best Mexican Restaurant in Tallahassee" awards before it closed at its former location in 2010. Now in its newly opened location off Timberlane Drive, the food that made Morelia's the best is back. This is a family-friendly restaurant. While alcohol beverages are served, alcohol is not the focus of the restaurant, as is the case with most Tallahassee Mexican food spots. The dishes are based on family recipes. The owner is personally committed to having his diners enjoy their experience and food. Lunch specials are very good and affordable. Try the "Mexican Guacamole" for a new spin on a dip for the chips. Not known unless you ask is the fact that any of the "old" menu items can be prepared even if they don't appear on the "new" menu. Just ask. We've eaten at Morelia's for years and it is a consistently good place to enjoy Mexican food. Morelia's also caters and they did a great job at a recent class party for 30 people. They open at 11 AM and close at either 9PM or 11 PM depending on the night. They are closed on Mondays.
