I used to live in Longview and then Puyallup, WA. I now live in So Cal and have been trying to find a place that I like as much, Javiers in Laguna is close but very upscale and very expensive. I've traveled the US and this place is the best. They do my favorite better than anyone, Camarones Mojo de Ajo. Shrimp in a garlic butter, even better you can get it 1/2 shrimp and 1/2 scallops with a great skirt steak in the Jalisco Special. The only thing I have ordered there for the last 17 years but then again everything is great! Quality, quantity, well priced with good service! If you're traveling I-5 try this place and C&L Burger Bar in Castle Rock.
Pros: They don't have a place in Southern California
Cons: Can't find any, unless it was they need more seating.
