Casual, traditional taqueria food. Pleasant service and good salsa. Feels like a neighborhood place. Worth a stop.

I had lunch here a couple of days ago with a colleague. The place was clean and service was fast, but the server seemed confused when I asked why tomatoes were inside my burrito.

I read about Perches on a website listing the best places to Chow in Missouri. We are huge street taco fans so this place was right up our alley on a trip through Springfield. Got ours to go; big mistake and a big mess. We sampled the ground & shredded beef and fish tacos. The fish was bland however the... More

Our first visit was okay. Hubby had chicken quesadillas. I had combo plate with cheese enchilada and beef taco. We both loved the beans and rice. We both were not impressed with the chips and salsa. We would visit again.

First time I tried the Enchiladas Poblanas. Born very near the border in California, I am no stranger to great Mexican fare. Quite honestly, the enchiladas were unimpressive. My wife ordered Chiles relleno, her all time favorite anywhere she can get them. I am going to quote her here, "the worst rellenos I have ever had." I'm sorry, but it's... More

My daughter happened to find this little gem when visiting from California a couple of years ago. We were looking for a place to have an all ladies lunch and since my entire family has been hooked. This has become my husbands and my Friday evening date to just experience their Chili Verde. Cannot recommend this place enough!!

Took a group to lunch and the place was busy. The restaurant looks as though it has expanded as it is taking up more than one space in the strip mall. Perches is a mom and pop type establishment (Not polished, but clean). On this day, the waitress was pressed to handle the work load and was running like crazy.... More

Had dinner at this restaurant on a Friday night. Food was very mundane and mediocre. Expected authentic Mexican cuisine but was very disappointed. It was very bland. Will not be visiting this restaurant again.

Tortilleria is a bit of a drive for us, but proved well worth it. We we seated right away and the waitress brought us some excellent chips and real salsa.

We were meeting an old friend for lunch and he chose Tortilleria Perches. I had the Pasole...spicy, tender pork in a flavorful broth. Excellent with a Corona! My husband enjoyed the Plato de Carnitas. It had a bar area with people watching football on big screen. Authentic and reasonable...will return when in the area.
