Drinks are potent. I actually had to ask for more OJ to put in mine it was so strong. Dinner tastes good. Just blah looking on the plate. No follow up service once your food arrives.

This is a great Mexican place with a huge menu. Lots to choose from and wonderful flavors. Good drinks and good service. Easy to find with good parking. Next to the freeway.

I have been eating here since I was 8 years old and have never been disappointed with a meal. The staff is like family, and the atmosphere is bright and lively. I will continue to eat here and bring my daughter here for many years to come.

Food was great had a nice dinner but the place is dirty and smells weird. They need to fix the air in the place; the front door has a draft coming through it because the hood in the kitchen isn't ba;lanced.

Enjoyed our lunch today at this nearby restaurant while we were staying at the Toutle River RV Resort. Food was great as was the service. Liked that they have a lunch menu, with daily specials. Nice atmosphere.

We were driving down from Seattle to portland and looking for a decent place to eat. This place was exactly what we expected: a down to earth good tasting friendly service family style Mexican restaurant. I had the chicken nachos for about $6 with the zombie cocktail, my husband had the super burrito, and we were both happy. No, it's... More

The best: Tacos al Carbon, Shredded beef chimichanga, Chicken Fajitas, and Mom swears by their excellent Bloody Mary's. Very welcoming, attentive service, and the food is always consistent, reasonably priced.

I've eaten here before and on this night it was a convenient stopping place just off the interstate. Since I'm trying to make more healthy choices when ordering, the chicken fajita taco salad seemed like a good choice. I was shocked when it arrived; rather than a piece of grilled fajita chicken on a bed of fresh lettuce, everything was... More
