Really, just another "Mexican joint" for the most part., food is uninspired but quite passable. Also, overpriced. Typically, food is plated and heated to serving temperature in a salamander. The food, swimming in red or green sauce with melted cheese is presented with the usual "Be careful the plate is hot" warning from the server. The place is clean and the help very friendly. The beer is cold. I think generally Oregonians don't get good Mexican food as easily as in the more highly populated parts of California. I really feel that most of the Mexican food I've ever bought in the state of Oregon has been less than satisfying. I think that operators of Mexican restaurants get away with murder when it comes to quality and creativity in what they offer their customers. There is so much more to Mexican food than enchiladas, burritos and tamales!
Why am I writing a review on this place while sitting at Thriftway eating lunch? Because when I ride my motorcycle to a restaurant on a hot day, I expect to get some ice water at least within the first 5 to 10 minutes. I hope to get my order taken within 15 or 20 minutes. Is that asking too much? The customers three tables away from me got four visits by the waitress while I sat nearby thirsty and hungry. I came here for the first time a month ago, and immediately noticed the high prices. On that visit when I was actually able to order and receive food, I remember the food tasting somewhat bland. Today I got no opportunity to order food, no ice water, and left with an empty stomach. That is why Thriftway got my business today.
There aren't many options in the Jefferson area but I'd say this is a pretty good one. Sometimes the service can be a little slow but when there's a sudden rush and only one waitress, I understand! We've been 3 or 4 times now in the last 2 1/2 months and each time the food has been very good! The last time we went (last night) we got margaritas and they were perfect! I'm so glad this place is in the area!
