We stopped for dinner with our daughters and enjoyed an excellent dinner. The fried ice cream is an added treat.

Usually I check reviews and they are pretty accurate. Not sure why there are such great reviews for this place. It stays busy and locals seem to like it, but we didn't. Lived in New Mexico and Texas, this is not good Mexican food. Salsa was mediocre, chips terrible. Prices are about average. $2.50 per taco, $3.00 per fish taco,... More

The food is okay, nothing special. It's small inside, so on rare occasion you might have to wait a few minutes. There is bar seating though. The outdoor seating area is bigger than the restaurant and bar area combined. The drinks are great and so is the service.

No matter what people say, the boyfriend and I love this place. The tamales are closest that I can find to eating New Mexican (home of hatch chilies) fair in an area that good Mexican is hard to find. Staff is personable and treats you well.

This place while having a cool name is your standard Mexican fair. They have indoor and outdoor seating but is right next to Hwy 99 which is quite busy. Service was prompt and friendly and cost was inexpensive.

Nacho Mama's is inexpensive with speedy service. We ate outside at a picnic table with umbrella. The food was tasty and plentiful and did not disappoint.

I have been to this road-side hole-in-the-wall numerous times for lunch and dinner. I was initially attracted to the variety of tacos--the meat choices included lengua, which is not often on an Americanized menu. The house margarita is tasty, and they have a nice variety of beers on tap. It is not the most atmospheric place, as it sits pretty... More

Multiple time diner and we keep coming back. They do a great job on Taco's (authentic Mexican with cilantro and onion NOT the Americanized hard shell, cheese, lettuce and tomato type), Tamales and Burritos. The bar also makes an excellent margarita. The atmosphere is a little shabby with a gravel parking lot along a state highway and a bunch of... More

This little restaurant beside the highway looks "questionable" from the outside, and it might not be as clean as we would like. But we have yet to get sick there and the food sure tastes good. It's very small inside but has a large number of outside tables, in front and on the side (which are reasonable quiet considering the... More

Let me preface this short review with a statement: No, you are not going to find totally authentic Mexican fare here. If you are looking for that, well then head further down Hwy 99 to Sanchez in Tigard. What you will find however is good food at a decent price, relatively large portions, served hot & quickly, with plenty of... More
