Great food in a festive atmosphere. Celebrated a birthday while on the road, and they brought music and a special desert. Many families, multi-generations, and clearly everyone was having a great time. Wish it was closer.

Restaurant is located in older home just a block or two off Hwys 101 and 6. Not many tables but wasn't crowded for lunch on a weekday.

Excellent food, great variety of all types of Mexican/Hispanic foods. Waitress was very attentive and friendly. Clean, festive interior, plenty of seating. The chimichanga was fried just enough, not over fried like some places. Beans were good and the salsa is homemade (and has a very good flavor). I would definitely recommend this restaurant and would return.

We were trying to find something in Tillamook and this seemed to be the busiest place, after driving around town for 20 minutes. We waited a few minutes for a table. It was a Wednesday night around 6:15 and they were fairly busy. The hostess seated us and then someone delivered water, chips, salsa, and bean dip. The bean dip... More

We stopped here on our way up the Oregon coast for lunch after reading about it on TA. It is a locals spot and the food was local and authentic. Would recommend if you want Mexican and traveling through town.

Being the Southwestern US, the Mexican food in Oregon surprised me and did not disappoint. It was original and quite tasty with an authentic Mexican flavor. It was great and I would recommend this place.
