Really enjoyed their "presentation". Guys were nice even if we DID have a little problem due to language... they were always smiling.
This place is great! I've been going to their carts for years and now I have a place to take the family for a sit down meal. Love it!
Hands down best burritos in Portland! After moving here from California it was a struggle to find a legit Mexican spot and La Jarocha has become a very special place in my heart. Try the shrimp burrito!
Amazingly delicious Mexican food cart turned restaurant. Perfect flavors and excellent service. Must try!
I had to do a double take when I walked by one afternoon, La Jarochita has a brick & mortar location? Oh hell yeah! It was so hard to decide what to order because everything looked so good. I eventually decided on sopes, one chicken and one barbacoa. They were perfect! Meat is seasoned well, tortillas were wonderful, great salsa, and excellent service! She made sure everyone had plenty of whatever salsa they desired. A dream come true!

Some of the best upscale Mexican food that I've ever had. The owners were on site and managing the quality control behind the line, always a great sign. Cocktails were great, and the selection of Margaritas was impressive. Would recommend to anyone.
Awesome food in a nice place. The staff is solid and the owners are amazing. The chef/owner is soooo cool you will wish he was your dad!
Delicious authentic Mexican food! This is the only place in Portland where I have seen authentic Mexican food! There guacamole and sopes are awesome! I love it!
Always a pleasure. Delightfully fancy. Love the cocktails and the food! Worth a wait.
The owners are amazing people and have created a thoroughly enjoyable dining experience. Their attention to detail stands out even in Portland. Fantastic and diverse menu. Top notch and inventive cocktails

Taco Heaven!! Taco Galaxy!! The swirl of flavors and juiciness makes your mouth water, your throat chortle, your stomach growl from pleasure, and your feet stomp from such damn good soft tacos. The pork carnitas rocks your taste buds to outer space. Can't do just one, always get two, to start. It's a great late night if it's a 3 or 4 taco night at Taqueria Villanueva.
Portland has a plethora of breakfast burritos. For the price - and the amount of food that comes encased in a crisp tortilla- don't think you can beat it. Always good, always hot.
The owners were so nice. And they're food tested fresh. Not dry like other places.
My favorite food cart. I recommend the enchilada burrito combo
I love this cart and I usually don't go to food carts because of the wait. The owners are very friendly and the food is awesome!

I ordered 2 tacos AL pastor, and they tasted authentic and delicious! I tasted my boyfriend's mission burrito and got immediate food envy...it was SO good. Their portion sizes are pretty large, including the tacos. Everyone working there was very welcoming, and the place was very crowded with happy customers. Would definitely come here again.
Enchilada La Costa is so good, you'll want to lick your plate. Arroz a la Tumbada is so good you'll want a spoon to eat all of the juice. Great place.
The food was excellent. Guacamole made at the table. Service was friendly. Prices are very good.
Food was very good, with a large variety, fresh ingredients like the salsa/pico de gallo. Portions were good. The patio was nice even through you're right on MLK Blvd which is generally loud. The service was not so great and had an attitude. I really appreciate the menu, but not sure I'd go back with the service that we received. It was extremely slow (5 pm on Friday) and the restaurant was only 1/2 full and only one other party on the patio. When we indicated to the server that we were going to a concert nearby and had time constrictions, the service seemed to get worse. We had to chase them down to get silverware, napkins, water, hot sauces (which are very good, house made), and the bill. Would have loved a second drink but couldn't chance being delayed any further. Mixed drinks were good too. Thumbs up for the food, thumbs down for the service.
Fantastic food and service! Honestly the best Mexican food I've had outside of Mexico. Amazing menu, I will be returning to try everything.
