MacArios Mexican Restaurant

Good food, large portions, service was good, good atmosphere. It was an all around good experience.
It can be a long hungry drive between Portland and, say, Spokane, Idaho, and other points west, but this place is perfectly situated for a wonderful lunch. Judging from all the Spanish spoken and the number of local workers eating here, it's a local favorite and it's easy to see why: wonderful burritos, satisfying and delicious rice and beans, and--my favorite--huevos rancheros with a ranchero sauce that I still savor thinking about it. The staff are warm and friendly, and the food comes fast. It's tucked into a corner of a building and easy to miss among the industrial outfits, but well worth the stop, especially considering that you can drive for miles off the highway toward Umatilla and never see a place to eat, especially if you prefer local restaurants over chains. Both Boardman and the Port of Morrow exits get you to Macorio's, but perhaps the latter is closest.
I was traveling, and just going through Boardman early this summer. I used Yelp to look up the best place to eat, and while there weren't many options, I found MacArios to be delicious, friendly and clean! First off, margaritas are only $4.75 here. And they are Large (the capitol 'l' is needed)! That is the cheapest I've ever seen a margarita be and frankly it was yummy! I don't feel like the cheaper cost meant cheaper ingrediants--so I give two solid thumbs up for that fact alone. When it comes to the food I was not disappointed. I ordered the shrimp in diablo sauce (the dish I always choose when trying a new Mexican restaurant) and I was fully satisfied. The onions were cooked perfectly, the shrimp were tender, and the sauce was appropriately hot. I also found the beans to be delicious, and to me they didn't taste like they were from a can. The rice was very underwhelming but I don't particularly care about rice so it didn't bother me too much. The only thing that I'd say I didn't like was that the addition of one scoop of guacamole for my dish cost $2. An avocado is, at most, $1 and I definitely didn't get a whole avocado's worth of guacamole. Plus, guac was included in almost every other dish in that section (and yet the dish still cost the same amount) and so for me I found this a big hard to take. As for service I was completely happy. My waitress was nice and answered all my questions without getting frustrated or being short/snippy. And the environment is very clean and warm feeling, which I really liked. Overall I would definitely go here again. So the next time I'm around Boardman you can be sure I'll be heading over here!

15" pizza measures at 12.5". Dry crust. They do use fresh veggies, but selling tiny pizza for large price is ridiculous. 12" pizza is 11", for comparison.
