El Cuate Mexican Restaurant Offers Up The Best Authentic Mexican Tacos... and Burgers?
When owner Ricardo Lopez came to the USA in 2002, he worked on a farm and washed dishes in an American restaurant famous for its burgers. Eventually, he worked his way up. After a few years, Ricardo began creating his unique, flavorful Mexican dishes, and at the urging of his boss, he opened his food truck, El Cuate Taqueria. He and his wife have always run the taco and burger truck, working together every day.
So, what’s with the burgers now?

Thrillist once wrote of our authentic Mexican food, “Widely considered to possess the best Mexican in the Gorge, you’ve gotta make a pitstop at Taqueria El Cuate. Handmade tortillas mean original, hearty tacos with generous servings of meat. This is Hood River’s most resonating response to the drunchies. Sidenote: They even make a superb hamburger for $7, which is cheaper than what you will find at any of the local breweries.”
