I liked it, and my wife, who is a Mexican cuisine expert, said she was very impressed. It's Round Up week here, so we are trying out restaurant and for this little cow town, there are quite a few quite decent eating places.

The food is good but the service is slow and not the place to go if you are in a hurry. If you have lots of time it is worth the trip.

The wait staff was quick and courteous. The food was hot and delicious. The salsa was homemade and good enough to make the visit for the salsa alone.

We eat lunch here several times a month and love it. Great lunch prices, terrific salsa, bean dip, chicken mole' enchiladas and vegetarian choices. Hands down our favorite Mexican restaurant in Pendleton.

The food was excellent especially the salsa and chips, the chips were fresh and the salsa had just the right amount of spice. The price were perfect. The only downfall is the the shrimp was slightly overcooked but that was a minor problem.
