“Best Mexican Cuisine in Astoria”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2010

This is the spot for my family when we have our group birthday dinner (and not JUST because they put a giant sombrero on your head and take a polaroid for the wall). The food is tasty and service great. Quick serve time, great with kids, and great desserts as well. It feels like a family run establishment, and authenticity couldn't be better. There are many options in Astoria and the surrounding area for Mexican food, but this one is the best. We will be back!

“Avereage Mexican Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2009

I think this restaurant is ok. I dont think its better or worse than any other mexican place. There is another restaurant in town on top of the fish market by the dough boy monumnet called El Tapatio. Most of the food there is ok but they have one dish called Carne Asada Burrito that is amazing. You should try it.

“The Best Mexican Restaurant in Astoria Oregon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2008

We lived in Astoria for several years, and have sampled many restaurant menus. We are now living in Portland and are frequent tourists in Astoria. The one restaurant we keep coming back to is Plaza Jalisco.

The menu at Plaza Jalisco has many wonderful authentic choices. Our favorite (and the one we order every time now) is the Plaza Jalisco Special, which is served on a heated plate after a delicious fresh corn chips with fresh cilantro salsa appetizer. The thin steak in this meal is unbelievably delicious. The side dishes include flavorful spanish rice, beans, warm tortillas and a hot dish filled with a spicy buttery saute combo of shrimp, scallops and mushrooms. Desserts include flan and fried ice cream.

The service here is wonderful. The wait staff at Plaza Jalisco are friendly, fast, and warmly attentive. The establishment is kept clean and I've never had a complaint about any part of our visits.

My parents visited us from Arizona when we were living in Astoria, and Plaza Jalisco is now one of thier favorite places to eat as well. Now every trip to visit us in Portland includes a trip to Astoria to visit our favorite city and our favorite restaurant.
