“Good solid Mexican staples with a smile”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2012

Bean and cheese burrito for $3.50--best we've had in 20 years. Simple food, priced right, and served up with happiness. Tacos were good all around; the shrimp taco includes scrambled eggs, so it wasn't what I was expecting, but it was still good. Aside from the surprise of a well-made basic burrito, the place didn't blow us away, but it is an excellent option for a quick, down-to-earth meal for not much money.

“Delicious food, friendly and amazing value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

The burritos are yummy! The menu is quite extensive with plenty of vegan options. The service is friendly and efficient. This is a family owned restaurant and they do a fantastic job of providing quality food at an affordable price.

“Best Taqueria in NE Portland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2012

The folks at La Bonita get it right. Simple menu that caters to the neighborhood (i.e. veg/vegan fare). Staff is friendly and they keep the lines moving.

“budget and good”

simple seating, order and pickup at the counter.
Inexpensive mexican style breakfast options
(if you want coffee, place your order and walk down a few doors to a coffee bar).
