“Mexican Food in Portland?”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

You stand in line from outside and order inside at the counter. Line moves fairly well. Then you find a table. Fast service. Good food. Very clean establishment. This is a small restaurant and it is a tight squeeze. Can get authentic Mexican drinks (non alcoholic or alcoholic). Price is reasonable and people who work there are nice. This is a typical Portland eatery. Why? Portland is easy to fall in love with, even with lousy weather at times.

“Por Que YES!!!!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

There is something telling about a long line at a restaurant. We ate here the other night and it was delicious. The line was out the door and down the street so we knew we were in for a treat. The menu is very easy...all a la carte. They have a ton of different tacos and I think I ordered 6 different ones. They were all amazing! The best Mexican restaurants are hole in the wall places...this was a great place!

“Local Hot Spot”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

More than your run-of-the-mill taco stand. This place rocks. There is usually a line out the door, but it moves fast. The meats are locally-grown, the veggies are organic, the tortillas are freshly-made on the spot. I highly recommend it!

“Yummy and Fun Too!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

A true Portland experience. Managed to get a table quickly, a great coup since there is usually a line that trails all the way out the door. The atmosphere was fun and the food was excellent and a wonderful value. Don't miss it!!

“Long line....not sure if it was worth the wait”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Went here for the first time 2 weekends ago when the in-laws were in town. Line was long, waited about 40 minutes to order. 3 of us ordered the Bryan's Bowl which was pretty good but nothing I would consider over the top fabulous. The tacos were quite small and the price can add up if you get multiples. My father-in-law didnt mention until our meals were finished that his margarita was very syrupy. Felt horrible since we ate there for his birthday. Not sure if we would go back....maybe if we drove by and there was no line.
