“Great hole in the wall”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

This is a real hole in the wall family Mexican food place and it's great. Food is outstanding. Restaurant is nothing special but it's clean. Casual little place with top notch food.

“True family restaurant, staff children are very noticeable doing homework and other kid activities.”
Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Staff children are very noticeable doing homework and other kid activities in a non-obtrusive way. Quite a pleasant experience, good food and service. Would go back.

“Oriols serves outstanding Mexican food...if you like food with flavor, don't miss Oriols”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

This review is long overdue; our group of three to four families has been going to Oriols for about five years. We make it a point of driving to Oriols after a fun day on Lake Mohave; since we stay in Laughlin on our lake trips, going to Oriols is a schlep, but oh so worth the drive! Our most recent visit was a week ago, in June, 2014.Our group of 8, which expanded to 11, was seated quickly, and drink orders were taken fas. The chips and salsa were excellent as always, and the server accommodated my fiery palate by bringing me the "hot" salsa. The margaritas are well made, and this time I decided to try the strawberry margarita on the rocks. Wow! To die for! My husband ordered the Carnitas Plate, and was presented with a huge portion of very well seasoned carnitas. My Camarones a la Diabla were outstanding, and my request for "extra extra extra spicy" was fulfilled! Spicy and very, very tasty! I could eat the sauce alone all day! the rest of the crew was happy with their orders too; the majority were combinations with enchiladas, tostadas, and tacos. There were definitely no complaints! The service was excellent, and our server checked on our party often, replenishing drinks, chips and salsa, etc. as needed. All in all, another outstanding experience. Can't wait to return Labor Day weekend!

“Very authentic, very tasty mexican.”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Even thought this restaurant was about 10 miles from where is was staying, I thought it was worth the drive if the previous reviews were true, and it was!! This little out of the way eating place has done a great job of delivering a well rounded dining experience, and the locals that I met and talked to there were very positive about Oriols; they had been eating here for years, and even though they had tried other Mexican restaurants, they kept returning here. And yes, the Cadillac Margarita with Patron is a VERY good margarita.
