it's impossible (and foolish) not to stop at Los Hernanadez while driving through Union Gap. we always plan our trip around a stop here to pick up a batch of frozen tamales to put in the cooler to take home. try the asparagus tamales while they are in season. highly recommended.

We did and it was well worth it. Best and freshest Tamales ever!!! The lady on duty when we visited was very nice and enjoys chatting while she continues to create their offerings. We were winding our way around Washington state when I read about this place and headed my husband in their direction as tamales are one of his favorite foods. During the same trip, we also stayed in the yurts and ate at Cave B Inn and Spa so you can tell we are very ecumenical in our tastes.

We hadn't read any reviews of Los Hernandez, consequently we were unaware of their reputation. They have been featured in numerous publications and have been a favorite of travelers and locals for years. We just stopped because my husband loves tamales and it looked like the kind of place that would be good. They are fantastic! We were still able to get an asparagus tamale(seasonal). It was awesome-moist corn, melting cheese, little bits of asparagus and a chili kick! They also make pork or chicken (both were great). If we lived in the Yakima Valley this would be a weekly treat!

Good place to visit for a great tamale, a low dollar out of the way location and a down home atmosphere.
The food and the service is a treat. Asparagus tamales when in season is what its all about.
Chicken or pork are the other options, love the salsa. I do not visit Yakima without stopping here.

Great tamales! Perfect balance of masa and meat, these are by far the best tamales I have ever eaten! Keep up the good work Phil and June! And just so everyone knows....these are definitely "home style"! Love them!
