“Very good Mexican food AFTER they seated us.”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

There seemed to be some confusion when we walked in to the restaurant. It was a quiet night, and no one seemed to be around at the hostess desk. After a few minutes we were "discovered" and they then seated us. After that everything was fine, the food was very good, and the waitress was very friendly. She even told us how her mother makes refried beans at home, so we could take the recipe back with us to Canada!

“Very good, considering the location”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 via mobile

We asked our concierge to recommend the place in town with the most authentic Mexican cuisine, expecting to be pointed toward some little grimy place. We were completely surprised when we arrived here; the place must be close to 10,000 square feet, and crawling with workers! The service was excellent, the portions were significant, and the the decor was unique and interesting.

The food was above average, but not really what we were looking for. I will not accuse it of being un-authentic, but I am not convinced it truly is the real deal. Our Yakima quest continues...

“Nothing out of the ordinary”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

This restaurant is located in Yakima near the Oxford Inn and Suites. The Mexican food was average at best, and there was nothing that made it stand apart from every other Mexican restaurant I've ever been to. Chips and salsa and bean dip, Corona with a lime, fried filled tortilla with beans, rice and cheese. If you've ever eaten Mexican food, you don't need to go here to try something new.
