[PDX] Luis's Taqueria in Woodburn

Nick | Jul 27, 2004 06:40 AM

The owner of Poncho's al Pastor in Vancouver had told me that her favorite taqueria is Luis's in Woodburn. Ever since then I'd wanted to try it.

They have a good menu and offer huaraches and a large selection of meats. They also take credit cards. I ordered way too much food: a pork tamal, a carnitas taco, a chicharron taco, a carne asada sope, and a cheese quesadilla. The quesadilla was just a folded corn tortilla, unfortunately. I still haven't found a place that makes real quesadillas in town. The tamal was a little dense for me. I prefer interior style tamales that are lighter. The tacos, interestingly, came with shredded cabbage. They were pretty big tacos with freshly made tortillas. The meats were all good. The sope was nice as well.

They don't have house made salsas as far as I could tell. They're not as good as Salvador's, imo, but they're another good option in Woodburn.
