We went to Marador restaurant to enjoy some good Mexican food. We were informed this was a bar not a restaurant and minors not allowed. We had driven into Portland, about 35 minutes and had taken the kids for their last day of spring break....More

Great food, big selection of Tequilas. The only thing I didn't understand is, I go there often. We always order the bean Dip, it never comes with chips. I don't know if we are supposed to use a spoon. And finding the server isn't easy....More

We had lunch here. Really cool atmosphere but the food was just OK. Margaritas were pretty good. Staff was not super friendly & and slightly rude. Service was decent. I loved the decoration and style of the place - very cool, but don't really care...More

This place has a nice selection of Tequila and a great happy hour. The location is just outside the center of Down Town but worth a taxi ride.

This is definitely a divy bar, but those places are the best right? It's a great for meeting friends after work, the atmosphere is pretty cozy and they have awesome appetizers! Great strong drinks and loud music.

It's been a little while since I've been here first of all. And the place does seem to be sort of ever-changing. However, it's always a comfortable joint to come into... any time of the day, really, and have a few. Or get plowed. Whatever...More

If it had not been for the dried out chicken in my wife's meal, we would had both liked it as much. The service was fast and friendly, my meal (the shredded beef chalupa) was excellent, and the beer they served me was huge and...More
