Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 June 2013

The menu is enormous, there are many seafood choices and the quality of the food is good. I had an enormous classic margarita with extra lime that was delicious. The rice was flavorful and not mushy. When does that happen? I don't know why this restaurant wasn't crammed on a Sunday evening. I ate here once about 6-8 years ago and will eat here again whenever I'm in town. Everything seems fresh and is homemade. Wish it were closer.

This is the best Mexican Restaurant in The Dalles. The service is absolutely magnificent. The servers are constantly checking to see if you need anything.

The mexican food there was quite different from what we have in Oklahoma, but it was sooooooo good. I have always loved mexican food but now I have cravings for yankee mexican food.

I am always impressed with the fast and friendly service here. For those of us with short lunch hours and busy schedules you can guarantee to get your food fast and hot and be out the door with time to spare. The food is always fresh and full of wonderful flavor.
If you are looking to embarrass a loved one, be sure to tell them it's their birthday while there! Table side serenade and sombrero with a photo to take home!

This restaurant is located in the building where Bobs Hometown Pizza used to be, and is one of the sites of the first bioterrorist attack on US soil. When it was Bob's, they used to have a salad bar (no mas) which the Rajneeshi followers poisoned in the 1980's with Salmonella, hence the site of the first bioterrorist attack on US soil (google or wiki it for a good story).

Anyways, today it is a thriving authentic Mexican restaurant in town. Owned and operated by a friendly Mexican family. Fast service, excellent food, inexpensive, reliable. One of my favorites. Ample parking, outdoor seating weather permitting. Extensive menu which includes some non-mexican and gluten free offerings. Conveniently located near the FM stoplight.
