If you happen to be in southwestern Oregon, don't miss a "La Bahia Taco Shop" in the little town of Merlin, right off I-5. The taco shop is in a small building just across the parking lot from the grocery store, and although it looks small from the outside, they recently bought the adjacent part of the building and have enlarged the seating inside.
The menu is fairly extensive and prices are downright cheap! You get huge servings of food (my husband got a breakfast burrito that took up his whole plate and only managed to eat half of it),plus they offer what they call a "Big Burrito" that must be huge! Selections range from Burritos, Tacos, Nachos, Chile Relleno, Tostada, and Tamales to Salads, Fish Tacos and even a pizza. They have a wide range of meat to select from including: Asada, Ground Beef, Chile Verde, Chile Colorado, Shredded Beef, Shredded Chicken, Pastor, Carnitas, and Lengua (cow tongue).
After ordering, you will be brought out a bowl of chips along with bean dip, green chile salsa and an absolutely delicious red chile salsa that has a smoky flavor. I couldn't stop eating it!
The La Bahia Taco Shop is open Monday - Sunday from 9:30am to 8:00 pm. The owners are very friendly and helpful, and you feel welcomed into their little taco shop as if you were an old friend. Don't miss this wonderful little eatery when you are in this part of Oregon. It's just north of Grants Pass off of Interstate 5 located at 144 Merlin Road in the small town of Merlin, Oregon. For orders to go, just call (541) 474-4637
