“Our favorite Mexican food in LaGrande”
Reviewed March 10, 2016
This is our standard go to for Mexican food in LaGrande. It has been fine in the past but the new remodel will add new space and a clean new look. The food is very good and the service is fast and friendly. We don't go anywhere else for Mexican.

Everybody is friendly and the chips arrived immediately with two dips (bean and salsa) and water. The Chicken mole was excellent -- the spices were perfect and it was not chocolatey like many moles (I liked this one better). Very nice!

Driving past Cinco and only seeing the exterior one would imagine their food as being run of the mill tex-mex. But the food is just so darn good. Its hard to go wrong on the menu. Also the service is fantastic. If you are in La Grande defenitly give Cinco a chance. The margs are also large, and very good.

I come here about once a week and always receive wonderful food and service! I'm a huge salsa fan and theirs is a good as my favorite salsa in my home town. I tend to get the same dish most days (pollo con crema) which is the best I've had at a restaurant, creamy and delicious with a good portion...

“Our family's favorite Mexican food in LaGrande.”
Reviewed May 31, 2013
Lots of Mexican food in La Grande, but this is our favorite.
They make their own salsa with cilantro. When you are seated, they bring you a large basket of fresh hot tortilla chips along with small bowls of refried beans and salsa.
Plates are reasonably priced and large. The owners work as servers and pride themselves on remembering your favorite order.
Our favorites are the chile rellenod, the avocado tostada and the Mexican stir fry. The siete mares is well worth trying.

They have a sign that they were voted best Mexican food in Union County and I can see why! The food is fresh and the restaurant smells great. This is one of 2 restaurants I know of with ropa vodka salad and it's great. Chips are fresh and crispy and the salsa is just right.

Friendly staff continue to serve great Mexican food! Don't feel like Mexican? Try the ribeye steak or maybe the crunchy chicken salad.
“Super good food!”
Reviewed November 8, 2011
We eat there at least once a week. The last time was Nov. 4, 2011. Their food is very, very good! Almost all of the food is made fresh there every day. Not frozen etc. We started eating there over 10 years ago and have gotten to know Raul and Maria over the years. Extremely nice people... Service is friendly, fast and super efficient. The restaurant was originally an A & W restaurant many years ago. Hence the shape of the building. They have built on to the original building and have a nice lounge and there is an outdoor patio with seating for in the summertime. Prices are very reasonable and portions are large, so we usually have the smaller platters. They also allow you to split some of the the larger meals. Beware that when your food is brought to you - it is very hot. (Temperature wise - not overly spicy.) Their food is not overly spicy as a rule, but they do have some spicy dishes so don't be afraid to ask and they will tell you. There is a large screen TV in the lounge and when they are really busy the lounge is a little quieter than the main section of the restaurant. If you like Mexican food - this is the place to eat.
Very authentic Mexican food with friendly service! The restaurant itself is a bit run-down and under construction. Portion sizes are huge so plan to either share, take some home or over-eat! A yummy experience on our trip out to beautiful Eastern Oregon.
Had a very nice meal there last night. We ordered a combo and a chalupa. Both were excellent. Shredded beef was particularly good. Margarita was quite good. Beer was cold. Service was friendly and attentive. Menu is quite expansive. I recommend you try it!
Great Mexican food. The salsa is spicy, they give beans with the chips
We are a tough crew to feed. Dairy Glutten and beef allergies. They made every effort to help. Loved the pork tamales.. shreaded beef is very flavorfull
Food is all made fresh o site.
Our waiter was very attentive
Definitely coming back when I drive thru La Grande
I never liked Mexican Food. Ever. But when I came to this place, all of that changed.
Their salsa is delicious, as are the beans, and the chips come out nice and hot! If you ask for it, they will give you the extra spicy salsa that leaves your face red (but wow is it ever good! Why do I torture myself like this?). Their dishes are very good and the plates are hot, which keeps your meal nice and warm. If you don't like dry chicken, don't get a chicken dish. Other than that, this is a great place to go if you are craving Mexican Food.
The Siete Mares was fantastic. I was really surprised by how fresh the seafood was. The broth combined with lime, cilantro, and onions, wow.
Awesome service, decent prices, huge portions, pretty good food. And delicious Horchata!!
My husband and I came in late on a Sunday evening and the food and service were amazing! My husband was blown away by their chile relleno combo. The prices were fantastic and their margaritas are delicious and have the right amount of alcohol. An amazing place to have a drink, relax and enjoy a phenomenal meal!
When I moved here we went to try out the best Mexican food in la grande. We went to cinco de mayo, the food is amazing. We always come to cinco de mayo every other Thursday now. So any time you want to have any Mexican food, come to cinco de mayo
Great Mexican food for the friends/family and individual. The quality is top notch. The prices are very good, and the service is very friendly. I recommend this place as the best mexican food in La Grande.
We came by this awesome restaurant while driving home from a long road trip. We had a group of 11 and we were served very well and the food was incredible. Every single person in the group couldn't talk more highly of this place. We would all highly recommend this place to anybody and everybody.
The best sopa de siete mares I had in my life. Friendly staff, fast service
Great food, fresh ingredients, full of flavor. Great price.
My favorite place to go. The best mexi food in town and great prices for portions.
Passing thru La Grande we ate dinner here and the experience is worthy of a review. The staff, while not particularly welcoming.....I felt like a "one time visitor" instead of a regular, was quite efficient and we had everything we needed when we needed it. The food was excellent and the margaritas well made. Prices are certainly reasonable too.
A friend suggested this place and it was good. A nice break from the freeway and a good lunch. I always have an enchilada when I go to a new Mexican restaurant. It gives you a good idea of what kind of Mexican Food they prepare and it gives you a good idea of what should be a good and basic test of the cook and the kitchen. The enchilada passes my taste test!
They seated us even though they were closing in ten minutes. Friendly and attentive staff and the best Mexican food I have ever had. Homemade salsa was divine.
- Amazing food, sevice is great. Best Mexican food in la Grande my wife and I eat there all the time. By far our fav spot to eat.
