Authentic Mexican food.

We really enjoyed the authentic Mexican food from this place. Had the tacos and enchiladas. Only thing that could have been improved was the re-fried beans seem like they were from a can. Other than that all was good.

My family has been going to Mendoza´s for as long as I can remember. Way longer than when they had the tiny restaurant next to the gas station in west Port Clinton. This restaurant is the highlight of my trips to this area. We all have our preference. My sister and my mom get the wet Sancho. My dad gets... More

Still good, but i remember it used to be better. Not a bad place to go, still an authentic cuisine and decent prices for being on the water

The bad reviews here have to be by people who have never been to Baha Mexico or south of the border past the tourist traps. If you are use to the Microwave restaurants, you better ask about what you are ordering. The wet sauce is not Salsa, it is the traditional molé. With that in mind, ignore the decor because... More

One person in our party who grew up eating Baha California Mexican food said it's the most authentic Mexican food she's had outside of hole-in-the-wall places in SoCal. Too bad several of the reviews were written by people who think the Americanized stuff at chain “Mexican” restaurants or their clones is "authentic." Otherwise, how could someone say the brown enchilada... More

Worse than Taco Bell. Service was ok. People were very nice and friendly. The food was barely edible.

I liked the convenience of walking over to the restaurant, but as far as the food goes, it was just "okay". The building seems as if it needs a complete overhaul, as its appearance can and does deter potential diners.

Had some down time after fishing and wanted something to eat. Well upon entry I noticed a outdoor patio type area. We proceeded indoors to see a small dining area badly in need of updates and the decor was confused between Mayberry RFD, antiqueish old gas pumps and an attempt at a Mexican Restaurant. The waitress was not knowledgeable of... More

Reasonable prices, decent portions, average food. If you go in hoping for more than a quick, serviceable lunch, you'll likely be disappointed.
