“Nice surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

We were not expecting this kind of quality but the service and food was great. They have a nice selection on their menu and the food arrived in a timely matter. The margaritas's and salsa and chips were nice and I can not wait to go back.

“Consistently Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

My Hubster and I eat at Casa El Mirador at least once or twice a week. The ambiance, the service and most importantly, the FOOD is always consistently wonderful. Our many dining experiences there have always been clean, efficient and happy. Pedro is the truest asset to Casa El Mirador and he is a truly wonderful bartender and person. This is my favorite restaurant in The Dalles!

“( ( BEST ) ) Mexican North of the BORDER! YUMMY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

We are local residents. Mexican food at it's finest. Made fresh from scratch you can't beat the flavor, service, portions ANYWHERE in the Columbia River area.
With no shortage of places to eat, most leave you "ho-hum" or ehhhh.
It's a home run with every plate. Prices are very fair. The seafood is outstanding fresh as is their entire menu.
I'm a retired commercial fisherman and the wife is a Dept. of Agriculture commodity inspector. When anyone wants to know where to have a GOOD meal.... LQQK to oCas a El Mirador. Period. Also, the local hispanic folks like it the BEST too. These people have earned the local patronage by their friendly service, high quality, and generous portions. Lots of doggie-bags leaving this place. So, save your self some grief and see first-hand what the best mexican food is like. You won't be disappointed. The chips are to die for.

“Slow & unfriendly service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

This used to be a fairly good place to eat. It has decidedly declined recently. Poor service. Average Mexican food. Good margaritas. Nothing worth writing home about.

“Great place to stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We love to stop here when we are in The Dalles. The food is very good. The service is GREAT. They really go above and beyond. We always have leftovers. We usually get a combination plate.
