Great little mexican place

Just got into town from a long day of traveling and wanted some quick and tasty mexican food. Colima's does that! Lots of options for all and cheap too. We were probably the only english-speakers in the restaurant, and that's a good thing if you want good mexican food!

A simple place to get your Mexican food quickly. I go simple with things like tacos or burritos. I find the beef lacking flavor so go with the chicken. The portions are huge so don't over order. Grab a couple of taco's and head to the beach and watch sunset!

I used to eat here when i was stationed at Pendleton. 20 some years later i brought my family and shared some memories. Nothing fancy but I Love the food. It's right of the beach. Kinda sketchy at night so don't walk the pier at night. Hope you enjoy.

I love Mexican food, but this food was surprisingly not good. No one in our group ate their food, the service was poor

There's nothing fancy about this place, but they serve good, basic Tex-Mex food at a reasonable price. My family stopped by for lunch at around 2 pm on a Sunday and there was always a line to order, so the restaurant must have a strong reputation with the locals. Be sure to check out the California Surf Museum next door... More

After ordering I stepped into the bathroom & right back out. If we hadn't already ordered food I would have had us leave right then. Our food wasn't good. The chips and salsa were just chips with a topping of a few diced tomatoes & onions and my burrito tasted like everything came from a can.

Great Mexican food with a very fast kitchen. I have never waited more than 5 minutes for anything I have ordered. The wife and I are locals and this is our GO TO place when we want a fast inexpensive meal. It is what it is so if you want a more intimate authentic Mexican dining experience with servers try...

Good local sit down or take out Mexican food. Just a couple blocks from the Oside pier. Tee shirt fancy or just swim suits. Not expensive at all.

We walked to Colima's from our hotel and found it packed at 8:30 p.m. on a Monday night. There were many menu choices but the service was quick and the price was very reasonable. I had fish tacos, my teenage son had a California burrito (could only finish half because it was so big) and his friend had a burrito... More
