“Just as good as the first time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

We were back again in Woodburn and happy to report that the food was just as good as we remembered it! Like last time we ordered the ceviche tostadas... so fresh and good! This time we had the fish fillet and it was fresh and perfectly cooked. We also ordered 2 of each of chicken, beef and pork soft tacos... they were good but the pork was a bit dry. The churros, which are cooked to order so takes a little time, were yummy and come in three flavors: plain, cream filled and caramel filled, just like the ones we had in Cabos recently (same price too!). Wish this place was closer to home!

“Pretty authentic all right.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

We take the opportunity to eat there whenever we get to Woodburn. Just good authentic Mexican food, prepared well, in good time, and quite reasonable. You have to go up an order your own and they bring it to you. No frills, drink options are mostly bottles. But the Mexican food is just very good.

“Don't Eat at the Woodburn Outlet Mall - Go to Luis's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

This place is a quick 5 minute drive from the Outlet Mall in Woodburn and so worth the drive. They normally close at 8pm but there were still a lot of people in eating so they let us in at 8:30pm. The food was very Mexican and very good, the music was very Mexican and very...well somebody must like it. :) You order at the counter and they give you a number and bring the food to your table. Only a couple of people speak much English but the order takers at the counter did real well; I practiced some of my Spanish and they were very nice about it, big kudos in my book. Pictures on the wall of dishes makes it easy to order.

We had the special of the day which included an enchilada, taco, rice and beans with all the fixings for $5.95; don't forget to get "crema" which is like runny mild sour cream and SO good and very authentic. They also had catalope "agua" that was fantastic for a dollar and churros for a dollar! I love this place!

It's a typical Mexican taqueria decor with lots of pinatas and maybe a velvet painting or two but there is lots of room for families etc so bring everyone! It is our new post-shopping tradition.

“Authentic food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

We knew this place would be good as soon as we walked in and heard the music and saw all the customers (we were the only non-Mexicans). It was like being in Mexico. We had tamales, tacos al pastor, ceviche tostadas and the chicken fajita combination plate. The food was amazing and reasonably priced. We'll definitely be back here the next time we're in the area.

“Love you Trip Advisor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

OMG...almost as good as Grandma's. I'm speechless. Trip Advisor reviews were right on the money. No atmosphere, but the food took me home. Even Da Prez ate here. Check out the wall to the right of where you order. Husk wrapped tamales, cheese enchiladas, steak tacos, rice and beans for $8.00. Best home cooked real Mexican food in Oregon.
