“Below average”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

We have driven by many times and it is always crowded so we decided to give it a try. The fresh guacamole was way too salty and did not have much other flavor. The rice and beans were bland and sticky. The corn tortillas were mushy. Definitely not worth a return visit

“Nice friendly staff, great food, and good prices”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Excellent restaurant at a reasonable price, the best part is the friendly staff. Must try the hot plate beef steak fajitas, oh so good, hungry is thinking about it now. Our waiter was so good we had tipped him 20%, our food was great, he brought extras when we had needed but wasn't too much attention that he was intruding. Too bad we came quite late almost closing time the outdoor section was closed, but the inside was pretty nice, homey and warm.

“Good food, good service, good prices”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Every time I visit Portland we stop by this local Mexican restaurant for dinner. The service is good, the food is average and the prices fair. Great place for a family outing.

“Great food, great service”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

We ate at the Powell restaurant. We were seated right away, our server Jose was very helpful and patient while we decided. Our food came very quickly and was delicious. We couldn't finish it! They didn't hurry us through our meal either. The person who brought the coffee was so fast and quiet that while I was talking to Jose about what to order I didn't even notice it had arrived.

“My All Time Favorite”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Been going to this mexican restaurant since 1971 and even though do not live in portland, oregon any more - always stop in when I get back. Beef enchilada, heavenly taco, and pretty much everything else is great. They sell their own salad dressing that I love. On going supply of chips and you can eat in the main area or bar. Bar is dark and fun except then someone plays one of the video machines.

Lunch, dinner or carry out - alway great and consistent.
