Local hangout. I love the chile verde burrito. Best one I have found in town. Pretty standard fair, pleasant service, average prices.

We had beef and carnita dishes and we found the meat a bit tasteless with not much seasoning. The side of rice was good but the beans tasted like a cast iron skillet.

I love the food here and so does the whole family from the littlest to the oldest. The chips and dip are great. Anything you order on the menu will be great. You cannot make a bad choice at this place. Always friendly and fast service.

We dined street side with our kids and a grandchild. Service was attentive, food was good and reasonably priced. What more could you want?

This is one of our go to places in McMinnville. I love their Molcajetes Especial - beef and chicken. Yummy although a bit hard to eat. Fajitas, chile verde. All very good. When they are busy service can slow down and you might deal some grumpy staff, but once you are in the food is very good.

All over Oregon there are numerous Mexican restaurants, not least in McMinnville but Los Molcajetes stands out for reasonably priced great tasting food served quickly.

The restaurant owner (?) was really sweet. But the food was only so-so. I wouldn't go back. It filled the hole and that was all.

This is a regular spot for family dinners out. The restaurant is very large inside. We rarely have much of a wait even on busy nights. Weekends are best for fresh, handmade tortillas. We like the flavor of the fajitas. They have a kids menu that is also a good value. The service has always been warm and friendly. If... More
