We had to wait a short time for a table and sat in the small bar area on an upper level. Drinks were creative and fun. The restaurant is casual, not large, and was full the entire time we were there. We both loved the kale salad, and the pork tamales were excellent. It was nice to have portions big... More

Belly taqueria is possibly my favorite restaurant in Eugene. 1) The food is amazing. Every dish is great. Guacamole? Get some. Tacos? Great. Chili relleno? Outta sight. And filling! Two tacos does it for me! The chefs are clearly passionate and have very educated palates, it's obvious that much thought is put into the flavor. And the presentation is so... More

Very nice small bar area in old town eugene near the train station with a small dining room but worth it because the food quality and service makes it the best in town for gourmet mexican food. All the appetizers are fantastic not to mention the best soup in town. They do specialize in tacos and the have a chocolate... More

On a recent visit to Eugene we searched out the local Mexican fare and decided upon Belly Taqueria. The hostess greeted us with no smile and an attitude that she couldn't be bothered. She led us to our table, plunked our menus down and walked away. As we watched her through our time there, she did not smile at any... More

We were really excited to try Belly after hearing so much. Slow slow slow to get drinks and appetizers which were delicious. We never saw chips and salsa, but the worst was yet to come. We NEVER got our Entrees! We gave up waiting for it after 1.5 hours... The waiter was apologetic but never managed to make our dinners... More

I stopped by Belly Taqueria tonight for a bite of dinner and came away a huge fan. I questioned some of the negative reviews on TA as I ordered my drink and food... Let me just say that the service was thoughtful and friendly. I sat in the bar and my bartender/ server Andrew was great! The drinks and food... More

The bar for tacos in Eugene, since Tacovore and Tres Mil Border Cafe opened, has been raised sky high: Belly just isn't competitive. This was our second visit in two months: both featured okay tacos. We were among the first to enter. Several staff spent 5 minutes chatting at the bar, occasionally looking in our direction. Finally, the older guy... More

The wait staff is very slow and inattentive. Do not come here if you like tender juicy meat or authentic mexican food. This place is made for white people who hate spicy food. The pork was dry and unseasoned. I had to ask the waiter three times to get chips and salsa. Our tacos took over 30 minutes to get... More
