Our family of 9 ate here and we all liked the food..Some of the prices were high but it all tasted great.....Location has a lot to do with the price and it was vacation so it was expected....They didn't seem over the top so not a big deal....The plates were packed with food and we had some for leftovers!!! We will eat here again if the need arises.

Service was ok... Food was really really salty. Hard to mess up Mexican food but this one qualified. Should of got the hint with the chips and salsa. Really really stale chips. Overall it gets a star. Not a place I would recommend!

Don't go here for any Mexican atmosphere, there is none. And the late day sun is barely blocked at all by the thin window screens. Bright and hot on a sunny day.

The food we had was very good. Nice crisp chips with salsa to start.
A fairly extensive menu with lots of choices.

I ordered Pollo Loco. Good flavors and well prepared. Plenty of food on a large plate.

The wife ordered Combo #1, enchilada/taco. She was pleased with her choice and ended up taking some of it home for later.

Service was prompt and consistent, though the server spoke very quietly and was hard to hear over all the other conversations.

Huge menu, reasonably priced. My chicken fajita arrived sizzling, but in what seemed like Bisto gravy. Good sized chicken pieces, mushrooms and onions. It was nothing special for sure. My wife's chimichanga, ordered as a side not a complete meal, was well done.
Service was OK, not enthusiastic or friendly. Bus person who filled water couldn't speak English, or chose not to.
Their Cannon Beach location is for sale.

The menu is huge, and perhaps that's part of the problem - they're trying to do too much - but the tortilla soup is an excellent choice It is hearty and tasty and a good-sized serving. I'd suggest staying away from items that have refried beans and melted cheese as these are very bland unappetizing. The service is prompt and personable. Horacio helped us wade through the menu for vegetarian options, which was kind of him.
