Totally unprepossessing looking--- but the food was fresh, hot, carefully seasoned, and the service exactly what one would hope for. Clearly a family endeavor-- at lunch there were a couple of generations working. Can't wait for next summer, to return (often) to try more of the extensive menu.

Great food, great prices and great margaritas!!! Very family friendly, great service...though it gets packed...so go early if you can. They have great margaritas and can make pretty much anything you want and it is pure heaven.

The dishes are the typical Mexican restaurant fare, but more tasty and less greasy. The service is excellent and you son't need to call for a waiter. I'm going back in August!

I do like their tortilla soup, especially on a rainy, windy coastal night. Otherwise it's typical fare. You'll get exactly what you see. I have not experienced anything outstanding or spectacular. Note: the restaurant has no air conditioning and can get extremely warm.

I will be honest, I was a little skeptical about a good Mexican restaurant in Pacific City but am happy to report I was wrong. With such a big menu I assumed the food would be pretty generic, but it was flavorful and reasonably priced - and friendly service too.

First visit was a winner. We had lunch, and the prices were very reasonable, and the flavor of the food was exceptional. The menu is varied, and while the dinner prices were a little high for this kind of food, we will return because it was so good. Everything was fresh tasting.

While the food is pretty good the price is too high. I have to assume they are following the trend of charging high prices because the tourists from California expect it. Not very authentic Mexican...more LA MEX.

We have been coming to Pacific city for 8 years and we somehow missed this wonderful family owned restaurant but not any more. Not fancy looking from the outside but warm and friendly on the inside. One of the owners sons was our server and he was lots of fun as well as knowing all about the food and the... More
