Restaurant details

Ooba's is centrally located in Redmond and it's been a great spot for lunch 2 out of the 3 times I've gone. This is a Mexican cantina type restaurant with the menu up on the board. There's a great variety of Mexican choices including the usual tacos and burritos. My favorite is the Salmon Tostada, which actually is more like a delicious salad with lots of fresh lettuce, grilled salmon, black beans, and a crispy tostada shell under the layers. You order at the counter and your food is delivered to your table. It's pretty much a self-service place and Ooba's has an incredible salsa bar for toppings. The only bad experience has been getting steak instead of salmon. Service that day was also slower than usual. But when Ooba's is "on", it's a fantastic lunch spot and I will gladly return.

The oddly-named Ooba Tooba (did the owner once play tuba in a Mariachi band?) delivers authentic Mexican food and cold Coronas in a family-friendly, fun and casual setting. With color-stained concrete floors, a walk-up Order In counter (no table service), family-style sit-n-eat tables, and an eclectric mix of license plates, antique signs (I've never seen a metal Nehi Soda sign that big!) and other bric-a-brac adorning the walls, this place just screams Cantina. And, eating inside this homey little gem, a block of Ben Franklin in Redmond, is the best way to savor their delicious Mexican food. Go for the black bean pulled pork burrito. It makes me salivate, just typing those words!

This is a basic walk up to the counter and order mexican restaurant in a strip center, There really is no atmosphere, but has very, very good food at a good value. A lot of locals stop in for take out and workers arrive in groups for lunch during the week. Don't expect fancy. Do try it.

We go often with our family or for lunch with friends - both take out and dine in. Order at the counter and then find a seat. My favorite dish is the salmon taco plate with freshly grilled salmon. The salsa bar is fresh daily with lots of choices. My favorite is the pineapple salsa which is not available everyday because they rely on fresh ingredients, but it should be! Rotating specials are noted on the board and have all been yummy. Call ahead to have your takeout orders ready when you arrive. Can get busy in the evenings, especially on Fridays with families, but have never had trouble finding a seat.

This our go-to take-out place. We've never been disappointed--the food is fresh and very tasty. The steak fajita is my favorite. Great value.
