We went early on a Saturday night and the place was pretty packed, BUT withing 30 min the place cleared out so it was probably a dinner rush. The atmosphere is really casual, peanuts in a bucket when you're seated kinda place. The food is great! We ordered onion rings as an appetizer, margarita, beer and each had a dinner... More

Talk about a wide variety of offerings! As they advertise, they have food from every continent and some very adventurous places. I had the fish taco b/c it was recommended by the waiter and I would get this every time! It was crispy and crunchy on the outside but soft and tender on the inside. My son liked his jerk... More

We had the jerk half chicken and a chicken tamale. Tons of food and just excellent with unique spices. Don't miss the grilled sweet potatoes and the yummy black beans. The food arrived hot, fresh, and delicious. We are going to head over there next week to try their happy hour. Recommended.

Our Server was a great guy. We had him choose our meal, He asked if we wanted food to take home, we said yes. The service was quick, our appetizer was the calamari, it was good; tender and crunchy, the two sauces were great. Our main course meals were Jerk Chicken with mashed potatoes, & cold slaw and the Kahlua... More

Since moving away from SW Portland, it has been years since we visited some of the places we used to frequent on a regular basis. It was good news to find Salvador Molly's is as good as we remember. It was a late lunch for us, so the bucket of peanuts was a welcome treat. The Caesar salad with a... More

The selections are interesting and the staff attentive. Quite an upgrade from the McMinamins next door in Hillsdale. Convenient from almost anywhere in SW Portland. Highly recommend for a happy hour but suspect lunch and dinner are good. Casual dining.

Menu with choices for everyone. Great for gluten free, vegan, or vegetarian, but with meat dishes, also. Great Happy Hour prices for appetizers.

The food here is hard to categorize - kind of Caribbean with touch of Mexican maybe. The Yucatan Chicken is the best thing and you can get it in the Sunshine Bowl or the tamale. They have a club you can join which gets you a free appetizer every visit and many are large enough for a meal for a... More

My family stopped here on our way across town. The food was delicious. The spicy margarita was amazing, perfect amount of sweet and spicy. Love sitting on the deck.
