Spending months of my life in Mexico City, I like this food. – When I eat at this little spot, I am always amazed at the quality and authenticity of quality food given the price.
The service is always, always, fast and friendly. One individual employee in particular stands out, Jeff. The service he provides is impecable. It's a pleasure to chow down at this tasty Mexican eatery. I recommend you try it. You'll get your monies worth.
Excellent Cheap Eats! – I will be the first to admit that my first experience with this restaurant was not good. We called just to see if they did carry out. We had to call five times before someone would pick up the phone and then when they did pick up, they put my husband on hold for 10 minutes - he hung up. Not good. Finally, three months later, we decided to give it another go because it's so close to where we live. It was outstanding. They are quick, the food is authentic mexican and we love the variety of corn tortilla tacos they have. The staff all know us now and we feel like a part of their family when we walk in. I'd say we go there at least once a week. Yes, they have some making up to do with all the bad press from before, but I am thoroughly confident in the new team. You gotta give it a try again!
New management, Fresh food, clean, new paint, First time, it was great, and I have gone back. – I had not ate here before, but on 02-10-09 I had dinner there and was surprised that I could get a dinner platter for 6.50 and trust me I can eat a lot, and I could not finish my meal. You can tell that it is made daily with fresh produce. The Salsa was fantastic, both the red and the green. I spent some time talking with the new manager Mark, who assured me that they were doing everything they could to regain the customer they lost, although it was before his time he still accepts responsibility on behalf of the owner. He said that he would do anything and everything to make sure that people come back, and I believe him. The service was great, fast and it was very clean and orderly. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable of the all the menu items and willing to make recommendations. The manager acknowledged that they can never be perfect, but they will always take care of the customer under his watch. I think you should try them again, and I?m sure you will not be disappointed. I would love to see them be successful, so please pass the word.
Best Mexican Food In Portland!! – The atmosphere needs improvement but it is amazing. I like their music choice becuase it is hip. The price is very good$!!. The taquitos are super amazing. I totally wished i could go back.
