Best authentic Mexican we've ever had!

When we walked into this place we weren't sure what to expect. It's a little quirky and not fancy at all. Yet when we ordered and our food arrived we were all just gushing about how amazingly good it is!!! Best food in seaside!!! Check out this gem for sure! You won't be disappointed!!

Ok maybe it depends on where you grew up and ate Mexican food. I grew up in Oklahoma and Texas. We believe in cheese. So I don't want to give it a bad review because I see many people loved it. Not me. We ordered an assortment of 6 things and sorry but i had to search for cheese .... More

The food is excellent hand prepared food. It is Mexican and quite the hangout by the locals. The food is reasonable.

This is an odd little place. It is small and none too fancy. There are more vegetarian Mexican offerings than I think I'm used to. That said, the food is good and I think that is partly based on the freshness and flavor of the vegetables they use. Don't get me wrong, there are meats on the menu too. Don't... More

Best darn Mexican food for miles around and you don't really have to go far. Call a head and your food is waiting for you. It really is a little stand. You'll know when it is open because the parking lot is full!

This little family place has the odd practice of closing on weekends when you would expect the largest crowds of people from Portland and Vancouver to be in town. But their Mexican food is outstanding and incredibly reasonable. No credit cards though.

Great food. Great flavor. Great price. They are open very minimal hours-stopping in is so worth it. Would make the stop next time I'm in town. Very yummy.

Food was tasty. You can get a filling, delicious meal for $6-8. Don't come for the charm or atmosphere. Also, no wifi. However, if your goal is to eat, you'll be pleased you stopped in. I had the chicken quesadilla with bean and rice. Nice seasoning on the chicken. You can tell they actually care by the way they put... More

Not only does this place have the most delicious Mexican food in town, it has the nicest employees too! The food is perfectly prepared by the owner and is so reasonably priced that you will find yourself going there often. The carne asada is my favorite! It is seasoned perfectly every time. YUM!
