Good entrees, good nachos, fish tacos, tostadas and beer. Comfortable surroundings. Reasonable prices, friendly waitstaff and good parking. Outdoor dining. Salsa and chips good. Can only turn right out of the parking lot.

Had lunch here last week with a couple of work colleagues. I had the Nachos well given the name of the joint someone had to. I had them with the shredded beef and I thought they were fine but very filling. I also thought the salsa and chips were pretty good as well. My colleagues thought their food was pretty... More

The food was good, but when you're from Chicago, good Mexican just isn't there. But it was good, my daughter said the shrimp taco was tasty. My enchilada was ok & my husbands carne asada was ok. The guacamole was good & fresh but the margaritas lacked something, like they were watered down.

all around good Mexican food for the Portland metro area. Not a lot of seating so arrive early as it can be quite crowed. No outdoor seating as it is located on the busy 99W highway.

Terrible salsa, lame nachos with canned jalapeños and the pitcher of supposed Cadillac margarita was almost undrinkable. I don't usually leave bad reviews but this was the worst place I have been in years!

This is one of our favorite places to go on a nice day. The food is excellent, and their patio is very nice for lunch. I'm not a big salsa guy, but Nacho Mama's has some of the best chips and salsa I have ever had!

There have been some nice changes here. A better layout, clean utensils and glassware. The fish and carne asada tacos were very good, service very good. Large area outside too. If you're hungry for Mex, stop here.

This is definitely not your mama's. But it is very good Mexican food that straddles traditional and Americanized very nicely. You can get great authentic street tacos or a big fat burritol covered in American Cheese. I love the tacos linguas (tongue).

Wanted a really good nacho after the football game. Thought we would find a little solitude and a good nacho at Nacho Mama's in Tualatin. Found the solitude, not a very good nacho. It was big, but bland and dry. Even the salsa and chips were below average. We had good service, but I can't say it tasted good or... More
