Cinco de Mayo - Feeling Mexy!

Much like St. Paddy’s Day makes everyone Irish, Cinco de Mayo is the one day each year where everyone lets their Inner Mexican out to play! And Ashland has a perfect lineup of venues for you to nosh and sip through :-)


165 East Main – (541) 708-0883

New in 2017, a tasty spot to grab your Mexi-cuisine. Try the goat. And the Pescado Frito. And get an ear of Elotes. Oh, and the Guacamole! This truly is a 'try one of everything' spot. And check it out: THEY DELIVER (Ashland only). :-)


5 Granite Street – (541) 488-1770 -

For years our favourite taco stand, they’ve recently moved into fancier, more spacious digs – but the handmade tortillas, lobster tacos and freshly-squeezed key lime margaritas are just as tasty as ever. Their food has always been a treat; being able to find a table at which to enjoy it is now an added plus! Also to try: their famous guacamole plate and winter squash & portabella mushroom tamales!

Taquaria Picaro

76 N. Pioneer – (541) 708-6565

Ashland’s newest latino offering – already beloved by locals for their relatively cheap eats, GMO-free corn products and extensive tequila library. Definite neighborhood-y vibe.

Other places to get your mex on:

El Tapatio

1633 Hwy 99 – (541) 488-2276

Local institution since the beginning of time, just outside the City limits (to the north).

El Paraiso

545 Clover Lane – (541) 488-5877

South end of town, convenient to the Hotels there. Large portions – one combination plate is big enough to feed a small family. To try: the Seafood burrito and the Chile Relleno Burrito.

La Casa Del Pueblo

1209 Siskiyou Blvd (across from SOU) – (541) – 482-5092

The food at LCDP is tasty, their service is snappy, and their margaritas are damned near lethal.

Senior Sams

1634 Ashland Street– (541) 488-1262

Huge, tasty Mission-style burritos; easy on the wallet.

Big Als

474 N. Main – (541) 482-6481

Yes, the burger and shake shack. But have you noticed that half of their menu is Mexican? Thank owner Arturo for his family recipe offerings. :-)
