The only Mexican Restaurant in Hoodland area has gone downhill. We have regularly frequented EBL since opening and noticed changes. If you are a mexican restaurant, chips are the first thing served. They really should be fresh, not old and stale. When telling the older waitress she waved her hand flippantly and said "that's all we got". Our regular waitress... More

We have been frequent customers here since their opening. Never again! A Mexican Restaurant serving stale tortilla chips is absolutely criminal. When we informed the staff we were told it was all they had! Really. We cut our loss, paid for the beer we drank while waiting for our meal and just left. Completely inexcusable. Hopefully someone else has a... More

Stopped in for an early dinner just last week while we were passing through Mt. Hood. The service was great and the food excellent. The menu gave lots of options and we were delighted with the experience.

Was hoping this would be an option for us since we travel this road often. Especially optimistic since reviews stated vegan options available. However disappointed in the food overall. Would describe the flavor as bland. Ordered the mushroom tamales and they seemed like they were made with canned mushrooms. The guacamole was watery and flavorless. Since the rice was made... More

My shredded beef taco salad was so salty I could not eat it. I even tried to take a small piece of beef and dilute it with lots of lettuce but it was still too salty. The charge was removed from our bill but I went next door to get a bagel and coffee rather than try anything else.

I don't think this is usually a problem for most, however when a meal is overwhelmed by one ingredient it is.. I ordered the taco salad. It had to come with almost a pound of shredded chicken on top of the salad. My husband got the Chicken Flautas. These also were so over stuffed with chicken that it had no... More

This small restaurant was highly recommend by two friends, so I took my fiance' there for dinner. It exceeded our expectations. The Chili Verde was delicious and this place is our new favorite Mexican restaurant! Not only was the food delicious, the service was very friendly and fast. The place was packed and the atmosphere was a bit noisy at... More

Thought we'd give it a try and glad we did. We had a vegetarian burrito and a margarita. Have to say the portions were huge, glad I ordered a half order. The margarita's were so so, to much ice for us but the flavor was good. Think we'll try another dish and a beer next time. Why not work our... More

Went with friends for a late dinner. It was good Mexican food. Nothing super special but good. Prices were reasonable and the service was very good. The owner is from Michigan so it was great to see a Michigan State University banner on the wall. They also had U Mich, Tigers, Red Wings, and Pistons displayed as well.

Had the taco pescado special. 2 halibut tacos - less than two ounces of halibut, dry and overcooked, nothing on it but a small slice of halibut and sauce. Asked for something to put in it such as onion, cheese, etc. And got charged extra. Cost ended up being 16.50 for the worst excuse for tacos that I've ever seen.... More
