Sorry but I just don't like their food. Another reviewer referred to this as the Shari's of Mexican Food sorry Sharii's but this is soooo predictable Shari's is fresher IMHO. Poorly prepared food and the service is fine when you first sit down but later in the meal it seems to evaporate even on slow nights. Portions are smaller and... More

On numerous visits this restaurant has given excellent service and exceptional food! I have had a variety of dishes and they are all scrumptious.

We've been coming here for many years, and I can't contemplate a trip through the Gorge without stopping here. The place is comfortable, the staff is very friendly, there are a couple of TVs at one end for games, and the food is very good. The tomatillo soup is among the best I've ever had, and the Al Pastor (burrito... More

We like the decor and casual feel, though it was a bit noisy. Service was good, but the dishes we ordered were just average, and some of our favorite Mexican meals were not on the lunch menu.

The food and staff are wonderful. We ordered salads and enchiladas and they were great. The salads were made with romaine lettuce and lots of other fresh ingredients and the enchiladas were good sized and very tasty. Ate dinner there and had to go back the next day for lunch ... they are that good.

To the waiter who told us their fried ice cream was made fresh daily and would arrive hot on the outside and cold on the inside, you may want to spend some time in the kitchen to see how it is really prepared. I don't think your fried ice cream has seen the fryer once... The microwave? Possibly... actually probably... More

Beer Fest was going on, so I am hoping this poor review is due to the craziness of the meal. Ordered Margarita's...how can a Mexican restaurant screw this up? Not once, but when new ones brought, worst then first batch. Ordered Extreme Burrito (?) rice, beans, chicken, onions, etc., inside. No rice, no chicken, no onions, no guacamole...excellent waiter, he... More

Went in for some good Mexican food, was delighted when I asked about the wing special. They didn't disappoint The chef came out to see if I liked them. :-) I know hot wings & these are very good. Great beer menu & chips and salsa.

Okay...again we had been told this was the best place to get Mexican. The Margarita was not good. We did not order any special one...just the house. So...if you go, do upgrade. The chips and salsa were great. Our order was not quite right....they did compensate, but between the Margarita which I did not drink and the mix up in... More

The restaurant was pretty big and the decor was nice. I thought it was cool that they offered 3 different types of salsa with the free chips. My husband and I both had burritos and they were ok. Not the best we have ever had and not the worst. We thought the service was good!
