“A Nice Surprise!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Most of the time when a Mexican themed restaurant attempts to present something that can be seen as "up-scale" or "gourmet" they can easily get away from any real feeling of authenticity.

Woody's Taco's, by contrast, achieves what so many other eateries have failed miserably at; We tried 4 different dishes ranging from Empanadas to Taquitos and each had traditional rustic flavors but with very creative and above average ingredients;
Everything we had tasted fresh and home-made and of the highest quality fresh ingredients.

The Margaritas were the best we have had in any restaurant in the Northwest.

The atmosphere is extremely casual and the folks who work behind the counter were friendly and informative.

While the prices may seem a bit higher than what we would normally expect to see in a Mexican restaurant the quality of the dishes we tried more than justified them.

We will MOST definitely be going back!

“Tasty Taco's W/ a Great Value”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The giant homemade corn tortilla crispy taco's are delicious and for 3.99 a taco you can't go wrong. The fish taco w/ added mushroom and asparagus was one of the best fish tacos I have had in a long time. No wonder they're a 3 time best of Clark County winner for Best Mexican Food.

“Best tacos”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

for $3.99 you get a huge taco with a homemade corn tortilla crispy. Maybe other options on flour, but you can get crispy or soft. Choice of fillings and salsa. My friend and tried pdg..can't spell...and wishes we had a bit more sauce. Small facility with a few small tables, but...there is an indoor atrium right outside their door and the server will bring your food there. They suggested 2 for lunch, but one would have been plenty for me. Free water and you pick up napkins and utensils. A very long line around lunch time on a Thursday which made us want to try!

“Am I really in Vancouver?”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

Stumbled across woody's one day while cruising around downtown Vancouver. What a fun discovery! The restaurant has outdoor, indoor, and indoor courtyard seating. The courtyard opens onto some nifty shops and galleries. A breath of fresh air in the downtown district, makes me hopeful that the sometimes musty feel to the area may one day be replaced with a hipper type of vibe.

Great homemade chips and an assortment of salsas. The fish tacos are a specialty and I thought they were delicious. My 93 year old mother put aside her long ingrained mexican food prejudices and also endorsed them heartily. The place feels and tastes more like Santa Fe, if you know what I mean. One is able to choose from a variety of sides. Pinto, black beans or for the traditionalists, refried. Prices seemed reasonable to me.

Service is friendly, but one has to be a little assertive getting napkins, water, etc. No one is going to wait on you, other than to deliver the goods.

“Surprisingly good and authentic”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

They serve fairly authentic Mexican street food at a very reasonable price. The corn cob covered with cheese was unexpected and reminded me of trips down to the little fishing villages south of Tijuana when I was younger.
