I have read every review written about Los Baez. Everyone of the nay sayers would not know real, authentic Mexican food even if they tried every style of Mexican food on the planet.
There are actually several hundred various styles of Mexican food from all the many different regions of Mexico.
Many folks think themselves to be food critics but in reality they don't have a clue what great Mexican food is about or what it should taste like. Most, if not all of the other Mexican restaurants which came in higher in the ratings than Los Baez are places I have been and would never return to and clearly, would never recommend to anyone I cared about.
I have dined on Mexican food in Arizona, Utah, California, Texas, Washington, Mexico,
New Mexico, Louisiana, Arkansas, Florida, Oregon and I can say with a solid sense of honesty, integrity, experience and knowledge that Los Baez produces the absolute, most authentic and best seasoned and finest tasting Mexican food on the planet!!!
I realize most people have their favorite restaurants for their own personal reasons but to shoot down a high quality and genuine authentic Mexican restaurant based entirely on their having no educated knowledge or experience whatsoever about great Mexican cuisine is totally wrong, very narrow minded and a complete travesty of food justice!!!
Leave being a good food critic to those of us who really know what to look for (and taste for) in the type of food one chooses to critique....in this case, Mexican food!
I have had the great advantage and good fortune to have dined at Los Baez Mexican Restaurant since October 1973, the very month they first opened for business in South Salem, Oregon, that's 40 years!!! I dine here often and I will continue to enjoy their great food until I die of old age. All of their food, including the sauces, gravies, various meat dishes, guacamole and tortillas are homemade, from scratch using only the highest quality spices and ingredients they can find...no canned beans or rice as some have alleged.
I have the honor and distinction of having a very large and wonderful Burrito named after me,
the "Wally Burrito". It has the best of everything great in the kitchen, inside this one of a kind dining delight. You won't leave hungry, I promise. I have never left Los Baez hungry or unsatisfied because they always serve generous portions on every plate they deliver.
In addition, they also bring chips and homemade salsa to your table until your dinner arrives and often times you are too full of great chips and salsa to finish all of the food you requested.
So, now that you have been schooled about great Mexican food. I highly suggest you go to Los Baez Mexican Restaurant as soon as possible, perhaps for the first time or return with a renewed sense of knowledge and appreciation for what will certainly be one of finest dining experiences you will ever enjoy.
And tell them, Wally sent you.....
