We were at the Mississippi Ave street fair—which, by the way is huge with bands, all sorts of vendors—and stopped into Por Que No for a bite. It’s a small taco place with seats for about 20. It’s away from the usual tourist areas. We...More

Spend the time, wait in the line. You will meet some really nice people and the tacos are amazing. I always get whatever is features and I have never been disappointed. Of course, the margaritas and the sangria ain't bad either!

Found this place recommended in a blog and absolutely loved it! Cute little neighborhood, friendly staff, and good food/drinks with great selection. Wish we had one in Colorado! Definitely recommend.

I've been wanting to try this place because every time we are in the area there is a long line. This time it was around 2:00 and only a few people in line, so we had to try it. The line moves fast, and surprisingly,...More

Right after landing in Portland we decided to grab a quick lunch at a spot our Airbnb rental suggested nearby. The staff were very nice, helpful and not in a rush for you to order. I decided on the pollo verde and pollo asado and...More
