It's a quirky place. You eat either inside the house or in the garage. Even in the rain, the line is always long but it keeps moving. Tacos are very good and worth the wait. Drinks are tasty. Parking is very tough.

A group of 9 friend were in Portland for a few days. Based on a friends suggestion and reviews we tried Por Que No. Glad we did. The food was good and the atmosphere was fun. Counter service. It was hot the week we were there and it is an open air restaurant so it was hot but that wad ok.

Standing in line with temperatures hovering at 100 degrees didn't deter us today.
2 misters plus umbrellas made available for our use as we waited to get in. Ordered tacos de lingua, fish and special chicken taco...chips, fresh guacamole and salsa. Everything delicious. Open windows, back area outdoor seating with umbrellas made it uncomfortable. But aside from that , We will return.

We called in an order and were told that this order had not been called in at that location. We went back outside and checked the number which was correct. Otherwise we would have made a 40 minute round trip to the wrong restaurant The person at the cash register was extremely unhappy that we came back to ask them to check again. Surprise! a second staff person found the order. The original person was very rude. I was not our fault that they misplaced the order. Our advice if you call in an order is to make them read the name back to you.
On the up side the food was good although portions are somewhat smaller than we expected. The lines are ridiculous.

We went to Por Que No with some friends. Amongst other menu items, they specialize in street tacos. At $3.50 each, that’s a bit expensive. However, they are very tasty. There was a line to place our order which is nor out of the ordinary.
