This is the best Mexican restaurant I have been to in quite a while. Everything was good. Starting with the chips, pico and salsa: crisp, fresh and flavorful. The house margarita is fairly big, you can taste the tequila and the mix is not overpowering. Our waitress, Gerania, was super -- alway around but not hovering. My wife had the... More

As far as family-style Mexican restaurants go, Las Espuelas is by far better food than most. The menu is also more diverse than the norm for this genre. Very good food.

Great Mexican food every time we go. It does lean toward Tex-Mex but almost everywhere in the Northwest does... If you go to Mexico don't ask for any food that you would find here!!!

Met with two couples (plus kids) from out of town on a weeknight. They struggled to seat seven of us. Couldn't decide if the chips were store bought or homemade. The salsa was not a strong effort. Wide variety on the menu. Friends got enchiladas, burritos, and tacos. I had a fajita burrito. Came with the standard rice and beans.... More

The decor carries out the theme of the name, which means "the spurs" in English. Cosy booths with ample skylights create a nice feel. There are... More
