“Gluten Free Options, family friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us by one of the staff at Klickitat Inn. The wait staff was friendly and they sent a waitress to our table to help me pick gluten/dairy/soy-free options. My husband had the El Macho Burrito, which was a huge plate of food and delicious. My granddaughter had the kids nachos. I ordered the Panchita Del Mar that had fresh crab, prawns, and baby shrimp that was baked in a foil pouch, salad, rice, and white corn tortillas. Everything tasted good and I would eat here again.

“Big servings, great lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Holy cow! Their lunch portions are huge. We all had food left on our plates.

Pretty easy access off I-84 if you're passing through town and want something other than a fast food experience.

The restaurant is clean, well maintained, and we had coureous, attentive service.

“Huge serving in a wonderful place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This restaurant is a frequent stop when we go through The Dalles. It is big, well-kept and attractive. The food is delicious. I had the Enchilada Mexicana which was three enchiladas - one with red sauce, one with green, and one with white. Nice variety in flavors. The servers were super attentive.

1/2 price appetizers shrimp cerviche was very good. They customized it at my request with no raw onions. Strawberry lemonade was also really good.
