“No Bueno!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

Hubby and I dined there 7/27/12 for dinner. The food lacked flavor, and was overly greasy. I ordered a taco salad, and the tostada shell was burnt on the edges and bottom. Our server was cold and inattentive....the only time she smiled was when she presented the check to my spouse. Pros: salsa was decent, and they have some strong mixed drinks. Cons: Service and quality of food. For better food and service, head two blocks and cross the railroad tracks to Casa Fiesta...great pollo a la crema, drinks, and fajitas. The two brothers that run the place are friendly, and service is quick.

“Average Mexican food, grumpy service.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012 via mobile

We came here, driving through town, as a big group (20 total). Although we came at a non-peak hour (4 pm), the waitress seemed very annoyed that we came. The food was a bit below average, needed some more seasoning. Nothing tasted homemade, even the salsa. Two of our party ordered the fajitas, and they had a strange teriyaki-type flavor. My chicken burrito was bland and I think my rice was from the lunch hour or even the day before.

Bathrooms were clean.

“Standard Mexican fare”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

The Mazatlan offers your typical Mexican food without any frills. The atmosphere is fairly dingy and they didn't even have any music playing so it seemed pretty depressing. The service is so-so and no one seemed very pleased that we were there. So bottom line, there are other options in Pendleton I'd check out first before ending up at the Mazatlan.

“Great Lunch special”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

Mazatlan is a family operated business with very friendly service. The lunch special is a really good deal. I usually get an enchilada and tostada with rice and beans for $5. The Carne Asada tacos are the best around.
