The food is good. Years of being their patron has never left me poisoned. But man... it's dirty. If you didn't know them, you'd leave w/o ordering. I mean it's dirty.

After frequent visits and stays in Mexico, I longed for a place to get REAL Mexican food, not the stuff layered in pounds of cheese and enough grease to kill you. This place fits the bill. I have been going there for years, and every

Most authentic and yummy Mexican food we've had since we lived in Southern Arizona! Lots of food for the money. The free salsa bar is amazing...lots of varieties to choose from and freshly made chips. Sweet and creamy horchata! If you

Their weekend outdoor grill is awesome! Best prices I've found. Delicious food, authentic tastes. Ask for a side of beans & rice, a side of guacamole, & a side of tortillas, to go. Then make your own bean burritos! They add a bunch of salsa & a container of chopped cilantro & onions. All this for $5!! You can feed several people. Great deal! You couldn't make it yourself for cheaper.

The regular taco's with chicken are my all time favorite, but enchiladas, tamales, and fajitas are also delicious. Haven't tried anything else yet, as it's hard to get anything besides the delicious tacos. Best Mexican restaurant I've tried. Good prices too! They serve food at the Hillsboro Saturday and Tuesday market, which is awesome, and it always has the longest line of all the food booths, for good reason.

Okay, for my bonafides, such as they are: I'm a gringo who grew up in a little town in Arizona that was about half Mexican. So I've eaten a lot of Arizona style Mexican food, which can be pretty good. I've traveled to Northern New Mexico a LOT and love that Mexican cuisine over all other American styles. I also lived in Southern California for a brief while and have sampled the Mexican food there as well. Most of my relatives live in Texas and I'm familiar with TexMex too. I cook avidly and own many Mexican cookbooks. I moved to Oregon almost 40 years ago and believe me, at that time there was zero Mexican food worth eating here. Okay, let's get to the point:

If you want authentic MEXICO style Mexican food, this place is awesome. The first time I went one look around told me I was on to something great. It's a whole compound of great smells and people. Latino people. Exclusively. There's the restaurant, a big taco wagon and outside grill plus a store... all located around a big parking lot. I've been there five times now and have never seen a gringo yet. Not one. Everybody's Latino and Spanish is the preferred language. It can be a little intimidating.

If you're looking for a low light, quiet, traditional service Mexican restaurant, this is not it. The utensils are plastic and there are usually a couple of tv's tuned to the favorite Latino channels. I'm there for the food so the atmosphere doesn't bother me a bit.

Now to the food. Ultra authentic. Great savory flavors. Lots to choose from. They sell tamales to go at a buck apiece. They sell carnitas by the pound for $6 (it's good). Their salsa bar usually has 5 salsas and every one is about the best I've ever had. Absolutely the best salsas I've had anywhere in the Northwest.

These people make and serve the best corn tortillas I've ever had and I've bought them hot from the kitchen from numerous tortilla factories all over the West.

The prices are super low for what they serve up. Take tonight for instance. I ordered their special of the day: Mole Enchiladas con pollo for $5. I got one whole bone in chicken breast with a whole wing attached that had been slow grilled in a thin mole style barbeque sauce and FIVE chicken mole enchiladas topped with shredded lettuce, sliced avacado, tomato, queso fresco and crema. For $5!! Unbelievable. Couldn't begin to eat it all.

If you want to step into the interior of Mexico right in your own backyard, Taqueria Hermanos Ochoa's is waiting. My 40 year search has born fruit. This is it.

Heh- I expected a review similiar to the last review somewhere in here.
No, it doesn't have sparky fresh college students bringing you to your table and serving you faux margaritas in plastic glasses with the restuarant name on it. No, you can't get a happy meal or a T-shirt and they won't sing you a happy birthday, serving you a white cake sprinkled with cinnamon to show how 'authentic' the place is.
When I first went there, they were half the size they are now. No one spoke English. The tables and chairs were thrift store blue light specials, you got paper plates and plastic forks, and the napkins were paper towel rolls on the tables. The kitchen looked very clean, but that was the only place that did.
And it was packed with immigrant workers. Always. And the food was incredible.
Nowadays the dining area is much cleaner, nicer furniture, and they took pictures of the food and put it on the wall for the gringos. You can point out what you want to eat if the person behind the counter can't speak English. Still four types of fresh homemade salsa always on hand. Hand made tortillas and the chips and made daily, not taken from a bag. The goat cheese is fresh from the farm, and the food is cheap and delicious. You want a soup with tripe in it? You want real Mexican food you won't find in most places? Come here.
What can I say? I've been frequenting Ochoa for about 7-8 years now and it just keeps getting better.
But if you are looking for your typical Chevy's experience, don't bother coming to Ochoa.

Pros: The most authentic Mexican food in the Portland area. Huge portions for dirt cheap.

Cons: Counter might not speak English. Appears dirty due to some of the furniture.

Yes the food is ok, but, I would not go back. It was filthy, I don't know how Washington County could pass it. Maybe the kitchen is clean but the tables, walls, floors, windows where filthy, right down to the roll of paper towels sitting in the middle of the tables with food from someone else on them, we ordered to go & ran. If you want Authentic....like being in Puerto Vallarta, you should like it. It was cheap for sure and an experience not soon to be forgotten.

Since my wife and I started visiting Mexico with some sort of frequency, we've been trying every Mexican food place in the Portland area in search for something that might be a fraction as good as the food in Mexico. This search has only resulted in nothing more than disappointment...until today!

Taqueria Ochoa is hands down the most authentic Mexican food I've had in Oregon! We're big fans of local taco trucks, but have always pondered why there's not a family-style Mexican food establishment that serves taqueria style food. Taqueria Ochoa is the closest I believe we'll ever get to that dream. They have ample seating, booths, beer and the food is actually brought out on plates by staff! The House Special that I ordered (#8 or 29, not sure) was loaded with food! Easily the best rojas enchiladas, chile relleno and carnitas I've had outside of Mexico! It was enough food for three people!

If you don't live in the Hillsboro area, this place is worth the drive!

I've been coming to Ochoa's for several years now, and the food has always been at least above average, and usually very good. Sometimes it's really busy so service takes a while, but it's also small so it gets crowded very easy. It looks kind of dirty from the outside but their food scores are always very high. This is definitely a good place to go if you want cheap, authentic Mexican food!

This is an excellent spot for authentic Mexican food, and a great spot to hit for lunch. Five dollars will get you more food than most people can eat. Fresh tortillas, and the carnitas is fresh off the grille.

Great Economical Mexican-style Mexican food---not Gringo!
You cannot go wrong.
The food was very good, and the leftovers will keep you happy for a while.
The staff is very busy, but pretty patient with English speakers.
Definitely get the house special, #29, with Fajita fixings, and 2 kinds of chicken tacos, plus stuffed chiles. SOOO GOOD!
Great for families, lots of families already there. Big tables and large booths.
There is a breakfast menu, plus lunch/dinner.
