I was wondering if anyone could tell me where the best Mexican food restaurant is in the Brookings/Gold Beach area?

I know of three really good Mexican restaurants down there in Brookings.

Rubio's is really good. It's real comfortable, and they serve homemade Mexican food. Most meals are less than $10. They even have a drive-up window (it's not fast food though). It's located in north Brookings

Another really good one is Rancho Viejo. It's located in North Brookings, almost right across from Rubio's.

Torero's is also pretty good, reasonably priced Mexican food. Down by the harbor/port.

Default Best Mex...

Rubio's is no longer called Rubio's but, after a major remodelling, has changed its name to "Pancho's." It is co-owned now, too. I only went to Rubio's once prior to the remodelling, but have since gone back many times. It is, I believe, the "best" Mexican restaurant in Brookings. I can't speak of Gold Beach because I've never gone to a Mexican restaurant there.

Rancho Viejo, which is 'almost' across the street, was the Mexican Restaurant I used to go to prior to Pancho's. I really like the people who run Rancho Viejo, especially the very friendly manager, but after experiencing a 'soapy' or 'metallic' taste in the guacamole, I became wary of the food there. I never got sick, but, it just turned my stomach and I never felt comfortable with the food after that.

Torero's in Harbor (southern part of the Brookings area, along the Port) has some fairly good dishes but I have to question the cleanliness of the place. If you're not confident that things are clean and sanitary, you can't enjoy the food regardless of how good it is.

I recommend Pancho's over all, but stay away from the burritos. The flour tortillas are way too doughy/mushy. I guess it's the way they cook them (microwave?).

I dined at Panchos on Saturday (Cinco de Mayo) as a matter of fact. Chili relano was pretty good and my wife's Chicken Fajita salad was great.

Thumbs up Best Mexican restaurant in Brookings, Oregon

Pancho's Restaurante y Cantina on Highway 101, at the northern edge of Brookings, is by far the best Mexican food restaurant in the area. Great food, wonderful ambience, friendly service, quite clean, very fair prices, and a happy hour that begins at three! Check out the beautiful, cozy 12-person myrtle wood bar. Outdoor patio seating too.

Avoid La Flor De Mexico. The service is awful (can't attest to the food as didn't wait around to see). Should've read reviews online first. Will know better next time we travel through that way.

(Yes, I realize this is an older thread but it appears to still be very valid according to review sites online, and since it places well in Google thought I'd add my two cents to help others.)
