Besides the slightly disconcerting bathroom location (Mary's Strip Club next door), the Santeria experience is fantastic. The small space fills up quickly and the atmosphere can be hectic, so don't come if you're hoping for an intimate date-- just belly up to the bar, order a delicious tequila-based cocktail, and prepare to feel terribly conflicted as you decide which tantalizing-sounding option on the impressively varied menu you are going to indulge in. Hot tip: No choice is the wrong choice.

There were 3 other people eating when we walked in, we ordered 2 drinks, and then we waited.... And waited.... And waited.... More people came in sat down, got their drinks and food and here we were still without drinks or our order taken. Took too long for us we left.... horrible service, unwelcome atmosphere, and I won't be going again...

Seriously awesome, BETTER than authentic Mexican food! Not only have I been married to a real live Mexican for 18 years, but I've lived in Mexico for several years too - I know what REAL tastes like... Not only is the food fantastic, but you get the added luxury of service and value for your dollar - NOT something you get in Mexico or other Mexican-run restaurants. No offense, that's just the way it is. The atmosphere is quaint and there just isn't anything negative I can say about the experience. I'm not a foodie or someone that eats out regularly, but I just might make this place a weekly lunch date!

I wouldn't go out of my way to come here but if you're in the area it's definitely worth a try. It really hits the spot if you've been out barhopping. If you have to go to the bathroom here's a warning: it's located in the stripclub next door so be prepared to see boobies. Also, you can go to baileys tavern next door and they'll deliver it too you.

Horrible snarky stuck up rude wait staff. Much too bothered to put a couple of tables together for us without a bunch of sighs and dirty looks. Food is ok but the place sucks

My favorite Mexican restaurant in Portland. Totally dive (borderline dirty) but my favorite vegan burrito I've had. I love the service here too, they are in their own little world but somehow it adds to it. Everything I've had on the menu is good. Definitely a place that is better when you've had a drink or two and just want some "good Mexican".
