This place is a weekly stop for our family. The staff and owner are great. The food is excellent and they go out of their way to accommodate our preferences. The outdoor dining in the dead of winter is a rare treat for Portland. If they are busy, service can be slow but you can't rush excellence. Consider it an opportunity to enjoy another great cocktail.

Delicious food, relaxed environment, great decor. Chips and salsa aren't free but worth the $3. The beans here are really good, but the potatoes ole are amazing. If you can, try both. The fish tacos are excellent, as are the barbacoa beef and carne asada. I've been here several times, and always enjoy the well-prepared, fresh food they serve. And the margaritas are super.

From Our Editors

When the owners of Que Pasa Cantina renovated the restaurant over a decade ago, they looked to Mexico for inspiration. As a result, the cantina feels like a portal to Mexico itself—tin and glass stars dangle from the ceiling, portraits of poppies decorate walls, and vibrant, striped blankets counterbalance dark woodwork. As for the menu, it strikes a balance between traditional and original. Among traditional options, margaritas contain hand-measured proportions of tequila and fresh lime, and posole brims with hominy, roasted chicken, and spicy tomato broth. A handful of the contemporary entrees rank among the most popular. In particular, the chicken enchilada casserole merges green chilies, corn, and cheese into a stick-to-your-sides entree that’s as comforting as a nap in a bed of mashed potatoes. The restaurant keeps eight Mexican beers on hand and four beers on tap.
