This nice, locally owned restaurant serves some very good food. My crab enchilada was wonderful and the cream sauce on it was very good. My wife's fish tacos were 'the best fish tacos I've ever had." Every Mexican restaurant serves chips and salsa while you...More

This seems to embrace food from the Caribbean and Mexico. Nice selection of beer and cocktails. We ate a selection of tacos with delicious and unusual fillings. Great friendly service and lots of TV's.

A good Mexican restaurant in the Sellwood/Moreland area. Kim had a taco salad and I had steak tacos. Both were very good. One of the best things is that they accept the Passport card so one entree was free.

Food was just ok. I wasn't expecting much either as it only got 3 stars on yelp. I got fajitas and they were not like fajitas I've gotten before. They were soupy which was pretty tasty but not what I wanted. The salsa was good....More
