“Large portions, typical Mexican food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

This restaurant has changed it's name to Celia's. We ate on a weeknight. The chips were ok, the salsa was very good - a little spicy for us but it was very fresh. I liked how they didn't just keep dumping a bowl of chips in front of us - they always asked if we wanted more (I will eat them if you keep bringing them to me but that's not god for me!). The food was good, portions were large. Servers were pleasant.

“Typical Mexican dinner, late night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

Arriving at 9.20pm, there were no other custoomers on a Thursday night. Service was prompt (no surprise) and the complimentary salsa & chips were served up as we were seated. The salsa was just spicy enough: better than the other local chains. The chips were thin: better than Chevys, not as good as Mazatlan, about the same as On The Border. We ordered the Carne Asada ($1 off on Thursday) & Chicken Taco Salad, along with a $9 medium Margarita (not a Happy Hour price, obviously). The portions and flavors were right on target, but they did not offer a Passport/Entertainment/Yollar or other discount programs. Too bad for me: discounts are always better & I am more inclined to visit/re-visit venues which offer a savings. Maybe the Juan Colorado lounge had aHappy Hour price, but we did not check it out.

“Best Mexican food around!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant in the Portland area. The servings are HUGE!! The margaritas are also HUGE and delicious. When we want to celebrate an occasion, this is where we go. Always have leftovers to take home for another meal.

“Another chance gone wrong”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2010

I work in downtown Hillsboro and like the convenience of this place. However, this last time my partner and I dined here after work the staff was so rude and the food tasted like something out of a can. The host just tossed menus on the table. As if we were not welcomed. The food was so salty! And the chips were stale. What a joke. When we asked to get another basket of chips, the waiter told us they could only give one. (Not even to replace the stale batch!)
