Update to a previous review – This used to be my favorite place to get a chile relleno plate and I'm really sad it's not anymore. The prices went a lot up and the quality and quantity went down. It looks like you're getting a fair amout of beans, but they are just watered down.
I'm not going to rant because the people are nice and I'm sure the economy is taking a toll, but I've gone back a few times in a row recently and feel the need to recant my previous review.
Best service I have had in so long!!! – Tonight was the first time I have been to Mazatlan, and I am so glad I finally came here. Not only was the service amazing but the food was fantastic (as were the margaritas)! I go out a lot and this restaurant has the best service I have had in Portland. I would definitely recommend for wonderful food and service! Check it out!!!
Oh and they are open for dinner now too (the last review said they weren't, but they are now)! They also take credit/debit cards as well now... that's how we paid tonight, so there must have been some changes since the last review! Enjoy!
Family-owned weekday breakfast and lunch spot near MAX – I love this place - the family who own it operates it weekdays from 9 am - 4 pm, serving the best homemade beans in the city. Ingredients are always fresh and quality is excellent. Service is fast. Vegetarian-friendly too. My favs are the bean taco rico (a delicious guacamole like sauce with a grilled double corn tortilla wrapper) and a side of rice. My kids love breakfast here - burritos with eggs lasts the whole day. My husband and I order a burrito with ejotes (green beans) which are great for breakfast too. Yummy potatoes can go into your breakfast burrito or on the side. No alchohol served here and no chile rellenos (one review on this site mistakes this taqueria for the Mazatlan chain restaurant near PGE Park). Breakfast opening times can sometimes go a little later than 9 am but if they are not planning to open that day, they will post a sign. Usually we can just tap on the window and they open the door for us. One block from the MAX stop at Oak St, walk north to Pine. Daily specials for $5.50 is a generous plate and popular. CASH or check only!
Tasty, no-frills Mexican food for the lunch-hour crowd. – In Short
Rattan lined, brightly colored walls lend this downtown lunch spot a warm-weather vibe. Office workers, construction guys and art gallery owners all hit this spot for a midday fix of Mexican flavor. Tacos are large and stuffed full of well-seasoned meats like asada, carnitas, chicken and cod. Any of these meats can be wrapped up a hearty burrito or served as a torta--a Mexican sandwich on a soft roll with lettuce and guacamole.
Fish Tacos! – I have tried almost all the Mexican places in town and Mazatlan has the most authentic and delicious fish tacos around! I started going there when they had just a taco stand on 9th and Alder and was overjoyed when they opened a full scale restaurant. They also offer a taco rico which has cheese and guacamole on it which is fabulous! The employees are always very friendly and usually will remember your face and what you like to eat. The prices are very reasonable!
Hits the spot! – Great service and prices! Conveniently located for down-town workers and really hits the spot for a lunch-time craving. Their burritos are the best!
WHAT A BURRITO!!! – I love their bean and cheese burrito! There are other trendier Mexican places around but their food just does not stand up next to Mazatlans' menu! Much better food, friendlier service, and MUCH cleaner than the others in down-town. Move over Taco del Mar, your mediocre fare is in for a challenge!
Good, but bland – Three of us popped in on the way to a Beaver's game last night. My 21 year old brother-in-law-to-be from Texas & Louisiana was not impressed. Let's just say he lft his enchiladas and ate bad pizza at the game.
My fiancee liked her meal and loved the margharita.
Said up there with Oba's!
Me, I though the super burrito was ok, but bland. The tamale was all cornmeal, and bland. The chilie reyeno (sp?) was, well, bland.
The chips were good, and salsa nice but a little weak in flavor.
Get the hint.
Service was outstanding though. Very helpful and attentive.
