Mexican
A fun, hip & approachable restaurant that focuses on the social & communal aspects of dining. Lots of fun interactions & a sharing focused menu.

It’s laid back, friendly, casual and always tons of fun. It is a little bit rowdy, but in a comfortable, easy-going way that doesn’t take itself too seriously. The locals are always happy to share their tables with the out-of-towners.

It’s an adventure full of discoveries, a not-to-be-missed experience. It has this certain mystique, it’s unexpected, it’s for those seeking out the unusual.

Excellent food but, understaffed so had to wait to get helped when we had food but, no silverware and waited quite a while for the check. Outside seating on the deck right over the river is great.

Arrived early not knowing how bad traffic would be at dinnertime. Our table was ready, right on the water, nice, big, adjustable shade umbrella. Prompt service. Very satisfied.

Eating along the Columbia River on a beautiful evening; what could be greater! The restaurant was booked and the wait, with reservations, was about 5 minutes. The service was a bit slow but understandable in a time when wait staff is thin everywhere. The food, as always, was great, with the full range of entrees to pick from. Join their website and get a free birthday entree and regular emails with discounts.

We were there for a friend's birthday and we were treated like VIP's! Reservation was on time and the service and food were outstanding!! All the staff were friendly and courteous and were seated at the outside table of our choice by the water, just what the birthday girl requested.
Thank you for a wonderful experience!

It was really nice ambiance on the deck looking out on the River. The food was good, very straightforward American style Mexican food. Cadillac margaritas were fabulous.

Seated right on time with good outdoor seats. Clearly there has been some thought given to social distancing as half the tables were not there outside. Took close to an hour to get our food with no warning. Fortunately, we overheard the explanation to the table next to us. Had to go inside to get an extra plate. Had to ask for a second drink.

First of all, if you think they are closing soon, they are not (they have 20 or so years left on their lease and not going anywhere). There were four of us. We enjoyed the guacamole made fresh at the table, a grilled chicken taco salad, a fajitas salad, burrito especial and the carne asada and cheese enchilada. All were very good. We enjoyed the Patron skinny margaritas as well. Appreciated that we could reserve regular seating, outdoor or in the bar.

I sat outside and was offered no beverage or water. I had to wave someone down several times to get service. I felt invisable, while all the tables around me where getting water offered to them.

The seating kinda ruined it. The window by the table was filthy. The table was isolated next to a prep area. So much for ambience. The food was excellent, except the chile used in the Chile relleno was tough. So I took it home and baked it longer.

Don't ever change (too much, any way)! Been coming here since the 90's, had a waiter that has been there for 20 plus years and always great, memorable service. The flavors here are beyond the normal Mexican restaurant fare, and the view is awesome. So happy the lease is good to 2041, if they changed this place it might ruin it. Definitely more like a Hacienda in old Mexico than anywhere else around.

We came here for a birthday celebration because of the location, waterfront on the Columbia River. The view is fantastic the service was good but the food was not and very pricey Shrimp fajitas $22 and shrimp salad $18.50. Of the four of us no-one really like their meal.

On a clear day, the river view is the star of the outdoor dining scene at Who Song & Larry's, but the food, service, and margaritas are muy bueno too!

We do enjoyed our date night here. The nachos and flautas are superb! All the staff we encountered were kind and helpful. The manager on duty stopped to chat with us and listen to our conversation about how the flautas reminded us of our Honeymoon in Disneyland. We can't wait to return to Who Song and Larry's!

Our family participated in the Easter Brunch which was a new and fun venture for us. The staff was welcoming, attentive, and quite friendly; the 4-course menu offered several delicious entree selections, certain bottomless drinks, and hefty dessert servings!

We're already planning our next visit!

It's been a VERY long time since I have seen a restaurant team with a such a positive attitude. From the hostesses, server who obviously loves cats,(I do too!) and a manager not afraid or above working with his team. He was/is definitely is a true leader.
