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. Service ok. Table we sat at was uncomfortable and cramped for our party. Service was... More

Great drinks, food is about standard mexican restaurant. Service is pretty decent, but the place needs a really good scrubbing. I didn't have much appetite to eat my dinner, but the margaritas went down smoothly regardless!

Have visited here several times because it is loud and a great place to take the kids. The food is plenty and it is your average family style american/mexican quality. Good value for what you get.

a generally healthier menu than your average Mexican restaurant with many vegetarian options. The chile verde is very good. There is a very good vegetarian tostada with beans, corn, cactus, avocado, spinach, tomatoes and cheese. They have had the same location for more than 30 years on the north end of the Westmoreland neighborhood near Papa Hayden.

Portland is not a hot bed of Mexican food, but the Iron Horse is one of the better restaurants in the category. There are plenty of menu choices, ample portions, complimentary chips and various salsas, a decent microbrew lineup and cocktails. the service is friendly and attentive. This is a good place to bring large parties -- the restaurant is... More

The service was great, the food was not. The only good way to enjoy Mexican food is to most likely go to Mexico and have authentic fare instead of Americanized offerings. The chicken/avocado salad was so-so. There was not much chicken on it, mostly all lettuce with a few tomatoes BUT ample avocados. It did not have any flavor and... More

This is the place to go for a really fine Mexican style lunch. The menu is ample. The chips come with a choice of spiciness level to suit any taste. The staff is friendly. The price is right.
