This a great little whole in the wall spot. The atmosphere is fun and if you're lucky you can find a spot outside. Only downfall is that it can be very crowded. Ordered chips and guac and they gave a decent portion size. The flavor of the meats was scrumptious, you could tell it had been marinating and the tacos were made from scratch!

I'm not sure what happened, but we waited a long time for our meal. We've eaten here many times before, and this was the slowest its ever been. People who came into the restaurant well after us were half done with their meals before we got our food. Once we got the food, it was hot and tasty. They offer salt free chips if you're willing to wait while they make them. We went on a Tuesday night in March, and it wasn't that crowded. The potatoes are to die for!

This place is by far one of my favorite restaurants in Portland. My boyfriend come here about once a month. The space is a small, intimate setting. I feel like it is best suited for 2 diners, no more than 4 to a party. Sometimes the wait for a table can be a little long, (that’s Portland for ya!) but don’t let that discourage you as the food is well worth the wait. The service is always good, and the food is consistently wonderful. We have NEVER had a bad meal here. My top recommendations for food are the chips and homemade guacamole, the stuffed jalapenos, and the fish tacos served with potatoes ole. These are hands down the best fish tacos I’ve ever had in my life…any time I try and order them somewhere other than Que Pasa, I’m severely disappointed! If fish isn’t your thing, don’t fret. They have a ton of other excellent choices on their menu.

Insider tip: If you arrive, and there is a wait for a table, out your name on the list and walk next door to “The High Dive” bar. You can have drinks there while you wait, and a staff member from Que Pasa will come and get you out of the bar once your table is ready. Even though these are two separate establishments, this is the greatest idea EVER. Hanging out at the High Dive is a great option while waiting since Que Pasa is a small establishment and there isn’t a ton of standing room by the door to linger while your table is being prepared.

This is a quaint, comfortable and friendly place to have consistently good Mexican food. Favorite items are the chicken enchilada casserole, Mexican chopped salad, and the special papas mashed with cheese and vegetables. However, the very best is the Tres Leches Cake.....it is the best ever. Save too for it.
