Food is blah to me and prices are high. Went to family night once and that was better. I was raised in AZ though, so I know what real Mexican food is. It's okay, but not our favorite. We like Burrito Express off of Alamo.

I have been eating at Murillos for about 15 years. Even when I moved out of state I would always visit when I came home to visit. But now that we are living in the area and I have had a couple times to dine there this last few months I have to say it has gone way down hill. I went once with my young son and a friend and her baby and we were put in a back room and forgot about. I guess they thought our baby's were going to disrupt the restaurant or something, but we couldn't even get a refill on our drinks. Then I went yesterday (Labor Day) with my sister and the service was horrible. We had a party of 8 and every single piece of silver ware was dirty/sticky. We asked for more silverware and didn't get it until after our food arrived (and after asking a 2nd time). Some of our party ordered tamales, and we were told about 5-10 minutes after ordering that they were ""out of tamales."" I ordered a super burrito which said it came topped with guac and sour cream, instead I got a small teaspoon of guac and no sour cream. And to top it off, I got food poisoning from our lunch.

My daughter used to live in Vacaville, had to move out of state 2 years ago.\r\n When she does visit she HAS to go to Murillo's in Vacaville. \r\nShe says it is the best Mexican food in the whole world.\r\nWe had something called a mini paco, her's with shredded beef, I had the shredded chicken.\r\nIt was light and very tasty. \r\nI am not a large eater so I was glad of no huge portions.\r\nThe waitress was friendly and the appetizer of tortillas and salsa was just fine.\r\nDidn't notice the prices I didn't pay for the meal.\r\n\r\n

Pros: Good food, friendly service

I have lived in Vacaville all my life my fater has known the owner of this resturant for many many years. When I dine at mexican resturants I usually have a chicken Chimichanga and Murillos just doesnt show me anything. The chimi has gone up in price dramatically over the last few years as has the rest of the menu. $13+ for a chimi come on. The food is usually very bland unless you add the watery salsa or spaghetti sauce I cant tell which it is. I have gotten large pieces of gristle and bones in my chicken entrees before as well as burnt tortillas. The waitstaff on more than one occasion has been horrible. The bussboys usually refill my drinks and bring the other things I ask for while the server drops off the food and does not return until she drops off the bill. Over all its ok but not high on my list

Being mexican id never tried Murillos, i know know why. i ordered the simplest thing that all Mexican Resturants should have a Taco and i wanted it with carnitas...the waitress says they only have chicken or shredded beef...i look confused,since mexican resturants have more than 2 selections of meat, but i go with shredded beef. my Taco arrives in the form of a hard shell..???? they dont have soft tacos. ?? i still dont get it, what Mexican resturant doest have soft tacos..and this is the old location that ppl say is better.

I've been going to Murillos for as long as I can remember. The food is good, but they keep increasing their prices. The last time we went there for lunch, our bill was around $30 for 2 people.

I've been eating at Murillo's for years, close to 30, and LOVE their food. Their salsa is something different than what you find other places. It's almost like an enchilada sauce. Yum! I love it when I find an onion inside. It's like a treat :) However, they recently raised the prices to the point of it being cost-prohibitive for me to indulge my cravings. I've noticed it being less busy, which helps since it used to be so hard to get a table, especially a larger one.

There are two Murillos mexican restaurant locations in Vacaville. I usually go to the E Monte Vista location. The food is really good. I recommend the Paco's Special. It's delicious. The service is also good.

I have been visiting Old Murillo's since 1976, while I was stationed at Travis AFB. At that time the new restaurant had not opened. Now I live in Sacramento, and yet, I still travel 50 minutes to Vacaville to eat there. I agree with previous reviewers - that the Old Murillo's is better than the new one.

Pros: Friendly, Prompt Service, Very cold beer

There are two, the old, rather dumpy and the newer more modern. The food is much better at the older Murillos. I've eaten there since they opened their doors. The portions have gone down but the food is usually excellent. I prefer the older restaurant but ate again last week at the newer one. Food just not as good. Doesn't have the same ""feeling"" as we have acquired over the years at the older restaurant. You will find standing room only at the old one and not at the new. The biggest complaint is they won't go to Coke or Pepsi, it's still RC....yuck.....but you suffer thru because the foods so good. Their prices are higher than comporable restaurants. They have the business so why not......

This is my favorite place to have dinner after a day of shopping at the Vacaville Outlets. Plus I haven't had to wait too long.
