On a recent visit to Eugene we searched out the local Mexican fare and decided upon Belly Taqueria. The hostess greeted us with no smile and an attitude that she couldn't be bothered. She led us to our table, plunked our menus down and walked away. As we watched her through our time there, she did not smile at any... More

Thank you Michele for taking the time to give a well detailed review. While we are glad that you enjoyed your tacos, we are disappointed that your whole experience was not better. We will work on the issues you had -- know that we do care a lot about our customers and their experience at the taqueria (sounds like our... More

We were really excited to try Belly after hearing so much. Slow slow slow to get drinks and appetizers which were delicious. We never saw chips and salsa, but the worst was yet to come. We NEVER got our Entrees! We gave up waiting for it after 1.5 hours... The waiter was apologetic but never managed to make our dinners... More

I stopped by Belly Taqueria tonight for a bite of dinner and came away a huge fan. I questioned some of the negative reviews on TA as I ordered my drink and food... Let me just say that the service was thoughtful and friendly. I sat in the bar and my bartender/ server Andrew was great! The drinks and food... More

The bar for tacos in Eugene, since Tacovore and Tres Mil Border Cafe opened, has been raised sky high: Belly just isn't competitive. This was our second visit in two months: both featured okay tacos. We were among the first to enter. Several staff spent 5 minutes chatting at the bar, occasionally looking in our direction. Finally, the older guy... More

The wait staff is very slow and inattentive. Do not come here if you like tender juicy meat or authentic mexican food. This place is made for white people who hate spicy food. The pork was dry and unseasoned. I had to ask the waiter three times to get chips and salsa. Our tacos took over 30 minutes to get... More

This was recommended to us and the food was delicious and authentic tasting. The prices were very reasonable. We went about 5:30, so not too busy, but the service was very poor. Our server was nice enough when she did come by, but we had to get up and search three times just to get water and the bill. Hmmmmmm,... More

Margaritas were very tasty and the tacos and chips were great. Only downside is that it took a really long time for a waitress to even come by the table-probably 15 minutes after we sat down.

We sat in the bar & enjoyed the mango margarita of the day for starters; followed by El Flameado, a Carnitas Tostada & a side of Camotes. The Flameado I definitely would not order again; super greasy & yuck. The tostata was delicious; carnitas was crispy & really delicious. The Camotes were nice to try but I was over it... More

Great food and margaritas. Order the chips. They are fantastic. Maybe the best chips I've ever had. Saturday night and we got in without a wait.
