  1. There are a few postings over on (like this one There's also an old thread on Chowhounds which mentions some of the same places:

    1. I swing by Woodburn every time I head south. For me, there are two go-to places:

      Luis' is on the street closest to the train tracks. Everything is great there, but I have a particular fondness for their tostadas.

      Salvador Bakery is amazing for its baked goods, but I also love their tacos and even more, their tamales. If you love tamales, run, don't walk here, and don't forget to try the mole tamale!

      Also, if you like coke, note that at both places you can get Mexican coke made with real sugar and not high fructose corn syrup, which is what American coke uses.

        Thanks for the tips. I spent a lot of time in Salvador's; a wonderful place. Bought some Mexican cokes, which I love, and a pastry, and a tub of mole. Good tacos, too

          Re the Mexican cokes - they sell them in 24-bottle pallets at Costco (at least the ones up in the Seattle area). Comes out to be about 75 cents a bottle.

          In fact, one time when I had one in my shopping cart, I saw this Mexican family's eyes light up before they literally ran over and asked which aisle it was from.

            Yes, I heard they were selling them at some Walmarts, too, but it was far more fun and satisfying to buy them in Salvador's.
