Terrible food and awful service -- food is never consistent -- over the past year gave the place multiple chances

Best "Coyote" quesadillas ever! Being from California, I miss excellent Mexican food. AT Desert Moon, they make it to order, and it's not greasy or strange. We wish they would expand further South.

This place is o.k. but nothing to rave about. It's another Mexican Style place and the prices are o.k. I find that many of these Mexican Type restaurants are all about the same. Few are as good as ones that I've eaten at in Florida and over the border in Mexico.

If you have a hankerin’ for Mexican, Desert Moon Café is decent. We’ve eaten here several times and I would say 8 out of 10 times, the food has been good. I generally go for the rice & beans bowl (around $7) which is a very [un]healthy portion size which I usually cannot finish. The quesadillas are a bit on... More

I have been going here for years, both on Mill Plain and in the mall. I always thought this place was a way larger chain than just the two stores, it definitely has that feel. For what it is it is okay, not great. You can get decently legitimate Mexican food quick and easy. It's obviously far and away better... More

This place is good when you need your Mexican fix - I ate at the Desert Moon in the mall nearby, so the menu was limited, but i was satisfied and would go back. I only ordered tacos, but they were really good and the sauces they offered were also really good. I would like to try their breakfast options... More

Great burritos, free nacho's and sauces, good, cheap margaritas and they also had dos equis. We walked here from our hotel next door. Friendly staff who were very up on their cleaning. Nice to see! Went back to counter & dropped a five spot in their tip jar! :-D

The food is OK, but nothing special. It's good if you're in a hurry and are happy with nachos, fajitas, tacos & the other traditional Mexican food. The staff claim that it's southwestern food, but it's Mexican fast food.
