I have been here a handful of times. Great atmosphere. Chili Relleno is my favorite. They always have a great special for lunch that is quick, easy, and cheaper then a fast food value meal. The only complaint I would have is that on two occasions others in my party have ordered just a plain cheese burrito and the cheese... More

McMinnville has several Mexican fare's to choose from. I have tried them all over my 30 years here. My wife and I eat here at least once weekly and we have never been disappointed. When the restaurant is busy, service can be a little slow, but we expect that to some degree. The service staff knows us well, and meets... More

The food was ok, nothing special. The salsa was tasty but a little thin and didn't have a lot of chunks of tomato or onion in it. We went for lunch and it was $20 for 2 combo's, ice tea and soft drink. The service was lackluster. Our waitress barely spoke to us. My husband tried to joke with her... More

Highly recommended by other travelers around us. Good food, OK drinks. Her chicken quesadilla appetizer was enormous and good tasting. My Camarones a la Mexicana (Mexican Shrimp) was very good and filling. We had house margaritas - kinda flat tasting and weak. Our waiter was very good, attentive and pleasant. The overall experience was good. It was just a bit... More

Great Mexican food, great service, great atmosphere, clean, and just plain fun for the whole family or as a couple. They also have fantastic 3rd Street-front seating. This is our "go-to" place in Mac.

I'm such a very picky Mexican food taster. I grew up on Mexican food from San Antonio, Texas, a restaurant called Karam's. No longer there, many of the employees now work at Jacalas. Oregon is not known for 'best' Mexican food and many of the 'chains' are popular but very Americanized. Not Lost Molcajetes in McMinnville. I could not believe... More

Ample portions, very nice service, huge selection and very reasonable price. The bathroom is not clear, but the tables, silverware & open space are. The food, however, is cheese covered and average.

We came in on a Thursday and ordered off the lunch combination menu, one plate with two tacos, the other plate with a tamale and an enchilada. Both plates came with chips, salsa, rice and beans. Around $13 for both without drinks, tip. Both lunches pleasant, nothing special. It was a warm day, so we ate inside, but there were... More

We absolutely love this place! The owner is so nice to greet and serve us! She even remembers what we usually order! Drinks are strong, and food is great! Definitely recommend this to anyone who happens to be in town!

We are two couples who had not spent much time together for years. We couldn't have picked a better spot for eating, enjoying fine wines and reconnecting. Because there were four of us, we were able to try dish after dish after dish. And they all just kept getting better and better. I think the Chili Prawns were our favorite!... More
