Was told this was one of the best Mexican restaurants on this side of the river. We went here for an late lunch / early dinner. The margarita was good and the food was something that I would come back for. The place looked a little dated, and was not busy probably because of the time. The food was hot... More

I understand they make a great Margarita here, but we don't drink and drive so never have tried them. We love their Enchiladas Suisse and their different combination platters. All platters come with a generous portion size of rice and beans. Chips and two types of salsa come with the menu and they are happy to refill if you are... More

Unexpected find in a strip mall. As soon as we were seated, we were served salsa and chips. The waiter was friendly and offered us advice on the various choices. The food was served in a few minutes. The presentation was average but the food was good. The spicy salsa was great as I added it to my meal.

Yes, more than a hole! Ive driven by this place a gazillion times but because its set so far back in the strip building I've never gotten a good look at it. Honestly I thought if was a cheesy Lotto bar. Its actually a pretty decent Mexican food place that was totally packed when we got there. Even after we... More

Our favorite neighborhood restaurant. Consistently good food makes this one of our favorite Milwaukie Restaurants. We have had pork, chicken, and beef dishes and all were tasty. The chicken with rice is especially delicious and their Sangria is recommended. With your choice of refried or black beans and rice, the dinner is complete and a generous serving. The staff are...

Waiters were very friendly and courteous. Food was quite good. The restaurant was busy and service was not very prompt. Two people in our group of 5 wear hearing aids and the noise level was extremely uncomfortable.
