Best Mexican food around, U should try the Chili Colorado. That is my first choice and it is not spicy for those who prefer not spicy food. Also they take reservations.

Well, we decided to go Mex last night and this place was in the top 50 in town, so let's see why. Beautiful location on the water, nice ambiance, not crowded, pleasant wait staff....what else could we want. Ordered from the Valentine date menu, 2 apps, 2 entrees and dessert for $50. Soup was warm but tasty, entrees were warm,... More

Fun place and good food. Not cheap but middle of the road. Service usually good except for peak hours. Visit a couple times a year. Lots of action and good bar. All ages fit in. On the river so good view. I like the place but not a formal dinning joint by any stretch. That's ok though. Fine job!

We visited the other day during happy hour so were able to try some of the appetizers. First off, their chips are good. We ordered the carnitas sliders (great), a shrimp/chicken/beef skewer combo (chicken very spicy; overall very good with nice veggies on the bottom) and mini tacos (okay) off the appetizer menu. I had looked at the online menu... More

The food was good and service was great. We even had a visit from the head chef! Lots of good choices on the menu. My meal was served hot and in a timely manner, I had a specialty drink and it was perfect. I highly recommend Who-Song & Larry's.

They pour an excellent Margarita. Food is always delicious. Love the corn cake side. Service is sometimes slow. Restaurant is difficult to get to but worth the view if you get a deckside or window seat.

We were going to a Christmas party later in the evening so decided to catch dinner at Who-Song and Larry's. It was Christmas Day so the menu was much smaller than normal yet plenty of tasty options. A buffet was also an option and the buffet looked to be all encompassing with virtually everything you could imagine. We weren't real... More

Good standard Mexican food. Falls into what I label as yuppie Mexican. The lunch buffets are a fair bargain and the chili rellanos and fajitas are quite good. The river view is excellent and the outdoor seating in season is great. If they raise the bridge you get $3 margaritas!

The carnitas and fajitas were delicious and two people could split each of them, the portions were so large. They were accompanied by pinto beans, corn polenta, Mexican rice and pico de Gallo and avocados.The service was friendly and attentive and the ambience was cheerful and upbeat. A great family place.

Our evening began with a glitch, because the online reservation system somehow sent our request to their restaurant in Orange, California. The hostess told us they were trying to fix that problem. Luckily they were able to seat us without a problem. The setting--in a brightly decorated room with a fireplace and beautiful views of the Columbia River--was magnificent. Party... More
