This is a unique Latin joint in Moses Lake and I would recommend it to anyone who wants something a bit off of the usual Mexican style restaurant. The first time I came in, the owners (I suspect it was the owners) were the only two serving and cooking and neither of them spoke a word of English... read more

We enjoyed the meal here. They cooked fresh corn tortillas for us. YUM. All of us really enjoyed our meal and the food tasted authentic. Not the Americanized Mex. Would go again.

The have a large menu with all kinds of things on it like menudo. They also make a good strawberry lemonade I hear but they had ran out of the strawberry mixture when we... More

Eat where the locals eat! We were traveling across the state on I-90 and happened upon this place. They serve breakfast too! The food is authentic and delicious. Service was friendly. I will make this a regular stop when traveling I-90 the next time. It is worth getting off the highway and driving into town a ways for this place!

Clean, friendly (to all who came and left), fairly priced, attentive and efficient. Great 99 cent tacos, tasty and nicely spiced - get five, they look good on the plate too.

Here's a good place to grab a snack or a full meal deal at a decent price. Authentic food is good for you and tastes good too.

I gotta love their Tacos, the rest of their food is ok as well. This restaurant is more of a take out and it has a mobile truck as well.

We had a wonderful lunch at Tacos El Rey, along with about 30 of the locals in their home town of Moses Lake, WA. The food was great, as was the service! The restaurant (and especially the bathrooms) were clean as a whistle. If Moses Lake is your "home base" while attending a concert at the Gorge Ampitheatre, this would... More
