Still the best in Seaside

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

Great prices. Fast food kind of offering of Mexican food. Packaged chips industrial salsa. This is not home made or fine food kind of place. Good enough for what it is. Recommend? Yes Return? Yes.

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!

Don't let the outside make you turn around. This is Seaside, and a little rugged is par for the course. Took the whole family after a long trip from the east coast. Fresh everything, beer was ice cold, service friendly and wallet friendly prices.

I'd like to give this place a 2.5. I do not understand how a restaurant can close at 5PM? Do you realize how much business you lose by closing that early? Do you care? Must not, as your apathetic order taker / waiter who spent more time cleaning up to get the hell out of dodge than he did ensuring... More

After reading all the great reviews my husband and I decided this would be a great choice as we drove into seaside. I ordered 2 asada, 3 pork with cabbage, and order of shrimp tacos w/rice & beans. The guy working at counter asked me if there were more people with us because that was a lot of food. I... More

Don't go for the atmosphere, but this little Mexican place has great food and reasonable prices. I also liked that you could order small portions. The veggie quesadilla was loaded with sauteed zuchini, celery, and peppers. Yum!

I loved the pork taco, piled high with cabbage. The food my family and friends had was satisfying. Rice, beans, burritos. Staff was very friendly. Locals like to frequent this place, that says something. It's walking distance to beach and downtown area.
