We found this place on Trip Advisor and so when we got there realized we had been here before (couldn't remember the name). The parking lot was packed and as the time before, we parked on the street. That always says something about a restaurant, busy parking lot, usually good food. We sat outside on the patio and Martin was... More

Locally well thought of...but my experience was just average from food, taste and service. Mostly a "local" thing....

Years ago, this was the best Mexican food around. It has gone so far downhill we will never return. The salsa is tomato sauce with huge chunks of onion. The burritos were bland, at best. Tostada was soggy. The restaurant was so cold, all those around me were wrapped in their coats and still shivering. Not impressed.

I have never had a bad meal here. The food is excellent and the staff is great. This is a good family restaurant to try for people driving through Gresham to Mt.Hood or to the Gorge.

This restaurant has two locations, one in the Brooklyn neighborhood in inner SE and this one in Gresham. We were given a large pitcher of water for our table of three, plenty of chips and salsa, and well-salted margaritas. Portions are large, plan on a to-go box. My friends ordered the taco salad and a combo meal. Our total check... More

Noticed this restaurant driving by the evening before. So we dropped in on a Friday night and it was packed parking was hard to come by. But we sat in bar area as to have not to wait to be seated. We were waited on quickly. With a friendly and helpful smile. While waiting on our orders we had chips... More

I know, I know. What am I doing here again? When you get good and service for a good price, you have to go back, for more.
