OK:

Amigos Grill Portola Valley Al Pastor Amigo taco

Amigo Taco ($1.95) Al Pastor meat, cilantro, onions & salsa roja was average. The meat did not have a lot of seasoning flavor. The taco was also too spicy.

Amigos Grill Portola Valley Chicken Quesadilla

Fajita Quesadilla Chicken ($8.95) fajitas with guacamole, crema chipotle & salsa mexicana was a huge one. Average ingredient quality, with the chicken flavor not coming through. The sour cream dominated the flavor.

Pans:

Amigos Grill Portola Valley Carnitas Nortenas Plato

Carnitas Norteñas ($10.95) Jalisco-style braised pork carnitas, refried beans, mexican rice, guacamole, crema mexicana, salsa & corn tortillas was a pretty health sized plate full of food. The quality of the meat was fair at best, with it being a little over saturated. Tortiallias were nothing to write home about.

Amigos Grill took about 10 minutes to deliver our food. The food is priced at a fair rate for this upscale area. Quality was not high though. Better Mexican food can be had at most Taco trucks. A better bet might be Red Lotus next door unless you have to have Mexican food.
