DO NOT EAT HERE
Apr 2021
I am in my seventies and this is, hands down, THE WORST Mexican food I have ever had. The "freshly made" guacamole was brown, the lettuce on my husband's tostada was brown, the home made hot sauce was "off" and my chili relleno had fried scrabled egg around it and not relleno batter. On top of all of this, the flavors were reminiscent of that bad cook we all know. We could not eat the food at all. We paid for it uneaten and were not offered any compensation. Sandy, our waitress, said that "they don't make the kind of chili rellenos with the batter around the chile, they made "the other kind". " I wasn't aware there was "another kind" of chile relleno... If you notice any good reviews you will see they were from years ago, not for the current owners. I have never written a bad review before but I am writing this as I would like to save other people from throwing $30 out of the window basically. If I had taken my phone into the restaurant I would have taken a picture of the color of the food. There is excellent Mexican food down the road in Elkton at the outdoor food truck BTW.

NOPE!
Mar 2020
This place was good years ago when they took it over. It is crap now. They hire whoever they can for a cook and work them into the ground. If the owner isn't there be ready for anything! The food was greasy last time and they forgot our fries.

Went here with my wife for dinner, she had never been to this restaurant, she was pleasantly surprised by the friendly waitress-owner and great food. I strongly recommend this gem.

Typical Mexican
Nov 2017
Decent Mexican food reasonably priced. It is about the only place to eat in Drain, Oregon. Parking in back or on the street makes it a short walk. Family atmosphere & never to be real busy so not a long wait for food.

Still a strong Mexican place
Jan 2018 • Business
I visit this place from time to time and always find their Mexican items to be well above the usual with ample portions. This was my first visit in several months and found that it is still well worth the visit. The daily Mexican special is always a great deal.

I must say it is so fast for to go orders. The owner is very hard working and always there the food is average it has mexican and american food. It really is one of the very few places to eat out in the area and I am grateful they are here.

Decent Mexican food while staying in drain
Sep 2017 • Family
This is a large building that house's a bar and a restaurant, I was ate in the restaurant. La Pinata has lots of menu options. I had the chicken chimichanga dinner. The beans and rice was good. The guacamole seemed to be freshly made and was good. The shredded lettuce tasted a little "old". The waitress was very friendly and the service was great.

A pleasant surprise in this small town on Hwy 38 between the Coast and I-5. Best tamales and chile rellanos we have had in some time. Visit this friendly, baseball oriented Mexican restaurant.
