The food itself did not impress us much, but the people were wonderful. First time going to a Mexican place in Astoria. did not live up to a favorite we have in Estacada, OR, but it was good. GREAT service!

Arguably the best Mexican in town but really depends on what you order. The Chile Relleno is quite good, rice and beans are exactly that, rice and beans without much zip or flavor. Service can be very slow; aggravatingly so and there appears to be no rhyme nor reason for this. The beer is cold and the food is OK.

We had a nice group dinner here...it's a bit typical Mexican/American...but everyone liked their food...my torilla soup was really good and big. It's not cheap food...but good portions.

Absolutely everything about our dining experience was amazing! I especially want to thank our server for his extreme caution and concern regarding our son's peanut allergy. It was a very enjoyable and relaxing meal.

Had lunch special which was two enchilada for something like $5. Chips and salsa and refried beans were brought quickly and after ordering the meal it wasn't a long wait at all. Food was all delicious and everything was on the affordable side. Glad I decided to finally try this Mexican restaurant. I will definitely eat here again.

This place out performed what I expected. Pulled up, older building, but everything there was older, few questionable people outside, the food was great, and you got plenty of it, the service was fast, the waiter was friendly. I had the chicken molé, it was a sweet molé, which I have never had before, I really liked it.
