We go here every time we are in town! The food has such tasty flavor and it is so fresh and homemade. The Pork Verde is delicious, the best I have ever had. Love the portions and the half and half burrito is a nice blend of everything. Sure wish you were open on Saturday to enjoy even more. A... More

I have eaten at the Stand uncountable times and I sincerely hope the Stand's owner reads this review. First, let me say that the food is remarkable. Most importantly, it is different. As a chef and champion for good Mexican food, I find the Stand's fare better and more unique than all other Mexican restaurants in the entire area (including... More

Drove the RV from San Francisco to Seattle and decided to stop in Seaside to do some laundry, across the parking lot from this joint. Took one of my boys into The Stand while we waited for laundry to dry. Best tacos ever! I knew it was going to be good when we walked in the door and saw the... More

Seaside is a tourist town. When you see the locals at a place, you know it is the real deal. This may not be the most authentic Mexican food, you can find that right across the street and at many other taco wagons. What it is, is mouthwatering, filling, healthy, nutritious and fun. The burritos are so bursting with fresh... More

The only downside to this place is that they aren't open for dinner! And you have to bring cash, or write a check. It's definitely worth it, to go for lunch. Wonderful, colorful, tasty food, for great prices! Very generous portions, with fresh produce, and good guacamole! Another great place to eat in Seaside. We will definitely go back on... More

Ended up here by lucky accident. We were following our GPS to the place across the street and noticed a lot of people in the Stand so gave it a try. Glad we did. We both had carnitas tacos, they were delicious and so much pork we had to start with a fork. Homemade tortillas too. The pork tamale was... More

This is some of the best authentic mexican food I've had in the States. The verde burrito is excellent. Lots of pork, and no fat. This is the most reasonably priced place I've found in Seaside, and is my favorite place, so far. Too bad they close at 5 pm on week days, and closed on weekends.

This place draws us back, and we think it worth the 69 mile drive from home. It's an unassuming place, order at the counter and they bring it to your table. We have tried many things on the menu and have never been disappointed. Very flavorful and meat is perfectly prepared. They have vegetarian offerings, as well, and will prepare... More

There are two Mexican joints across the street from each other in Seaside; one is always full of people, and the other is usually pretty empty. The Stand is the one that is full, and for good reason. The food is good, the service is good, and even though you have to pay in cash, it is totally worth it.... More
