Redmond >Food & Dining > Ooba Tooba Mex Grill
Fresh & Fabulous. Loved the casual atmosphere of the place, reminded me of some of the great spots I've been to in Mexico. I especially liked all the salsa's! I had the chicken taco's with pickled onions~ really delicious. Would recommend it for sure!
Good Mexican food.. This was a great place to grab some lunch. Reminded me of Cancun. I had a chicken burrito, and it was delicious. Good place to stop in if you are in Redmond.
Best Mexican on the eastside. We go to oobas at least 2x month. It is prepared and grilled when you get there. The chipotle sauce is great and it is not an out of state chain.
Poor service & attitude trump decent food....
It's kinda sad a place with so much promise suffers from a almost complete lack of tact in treating customers...
How many times can a place SCREW UP the simplest orders ? when they ALWAYS ask for the same thing ? ?
If a customer asks for NO beans - simple, do NOT put in beans, etc., etc...
How arrogant can they be with senseless remarks insulting a customer's request by comparing it to " Burger King " ?
The prices are far from cheap for what you get - how much extra is it for polite service ??
Good mexican with a twist. Ooba's give you fresh quality mexican food with each dish having an unexpected twist - like the chicken plate contain string beans grilled for putting in your in your taco. Yum! Give it a try.
Excellent grilled meats. If you go here, do yourself a favor and skip the burritos in favor of quesadillas, tacos or one of their specials that showcase the grilled meats and fish better. It's not exactly authentic Mexican food, but it's nothing like the typical Americanized garbage you'll find at chains like Azteca. I'd say it's more like Authentic Mexican with a northwest influence. They also have excellent salsas.
Best Mexican on the Eastside. Everyone I bring here loves this place - it's been a safe bet for the office group lunch (including the vegetarian and "weight watchers" co-workers) or dinner out w/your "friends w/picky-eater kids". Highly recommend any entree w/steak, the pork quesadilla and Juans shrimp tacos! Can't beat the chips, salsas and guac (huge, creamy chunks of avacado!)
Awesome Mexican Cuisine. Ooba's is the best thing to have happened to the Pacific Northwest Mexican cuisine scene. Not to miss--chunky guac, salmon tacos, chicken enchiladas, and whatever the special is of the day. Yeah, you can get a burrito anywhere, but Ooba's is real food--pork chops, fresh grilled mahi mahi, skirt steak platters. Having grown up in Southern California, I love Oooba's authentic spices, sauces and salsas. You can't get better flavor and interesting entres than this.
Costly and Horrible. Please dont go there...I went there reading the same reviews below mine...and i heard it was better than Chipotle..What a joke.....It was the most tasteless Mexican i have ever been..If anyone in this review list claim it to be good, then they havent been to any mexican place in their entire life..i was laughing seeing their gucamole..it looked like a soup rather than a paste, yet tasteless....Its not worth the money.,..everything is over priced and quantity is very very less...It wont even fill ur stomach 1/2 and the food is gone...i prefer chipotle much better than this...
Okay but not really worth it.
Ooba's is a very unique place, I'll give it that but when it comes down to it it's not all that great. The food isn't any different than other mexican places, the presentation is just a little different.
Their prices are pretty high, there is basically no seatting (at least in the bellevue branch), it's crowded, and they have to constantly yell as that is how they let you know your order is done. Definately don't go here if you are wanting to sit around and talk with firends. This is strictly a place to go when you are needing a quick lunch that you can take back to your desk. Even then, you are looking at $10.
