“Just decent Mexican”
Review of El Trio Loco

El Trio Loco
Ranked #3 of 11 Restaurants in Gearhart

Reviewed March 17, 2012

There are one or two quite enterprising departures from the usual run of Amero-Mexican dishes here, like spicy game-hen. Generous portions. Nondescript decor verging on the fast-food plastic model.

Food and service were very good!! It is only 3 miles from Seaside and well worth the drive. Prices were very reasonable!

We ate here on our way to Neskowin, OR as we didn't want the hustle and bustle of Seaside or Cannon Beach that day. Very good choice! Delightful server with excellent service; clean bathrooms!; fabulous chips & salsa; and the entire family loved our meals. They even did a special request for our young child. We will go back on our next trip to the OR Coast!

We have been customers since this restaurant opened. It is one of the closest to our house. Mexican food is definitely a matter of taste. We like it but know others prefer another of the dozen competitors within 20 miles. We like the entire menu but usually order the same think. Last night our waiter recited most of our order to us to before we ordered. The wine list is lacking but the place has coca cola made with cane sugar. We recommend the shrimp cocktail and carne asada. Service has been wonderful the last few years and the owner is friendly and nice though with two other stores in her "chain" she is not always there as she used to be. If you go to elmariachilocoseaside.com you will find out more and will see a picture of carne asada. We like it and hope you will too.

We have several favorite Mexican restauranhts in this area, a couple of them are cafe style places where you order at the front and they serve you afterwards. This is a full service place, very colorful ambiance and excellent food. Loved the non-alcoholic Strawberry Marguerita, also. Perfectly blended and served in a pretty glass. Chips and Guacamole were fresh and our service was very attentive and friendly. We will be back here again and again, this was our first visit but not our last! :)
