I love this place. Been coming here since I was a little girl with my parents. Always nice and welcoming. Love hanging out here with family and friends for a drink or for a big party. Try the margaritas or carne asada burrito.

That always says something about a restaurant, busy parking lot, usually good food. We sat outside on the patio and Martin was... More

Locally well thought of...but my experience was just average from food, taste and service. Mostly a "local" thing....

Years ago, this was the best Mexican food around. It has gone so far downhill we will never return. The salsa is tomato sauce with huge chunks of onion. The burritos were bland, at best. Tostada was soggy. The restaurant was so cold, all those around me were wrapped in their coats and still shivering. Not impressed.

I have never had a bad meal here. The food is excellent and the staff is great. This is a good family restaurant to try for people driving through Gresham to Mt.Hood or to the Gorge.
