Great authentic Mexican food

The food is closer to authentic Mexican than you typically find and very tasty -- especially the tamales. The atmosphere is a little plain but that's part of the authentic Mexico flavor. Staff are very friendly. It's one of our favorite places to grab a quick bite or get some take-out.

We first started patronizing Ramirez years ago when they were just a grocery store because they have a very good supply of Mexican groceries and they have really great fresh homemade tortillas every day. When they opened their restaurant on the premises, we were eager to try the food and were not disappointed. This is a no frills, very good,... More

We needed some Mexican ingredients for a recipe and found that Ramirez not only had a small grocery but also a small restaurant. We ordered a wet pork burrito to split. We were glad we did as it was easily enough for two. Not one bit of it tasted like it was prepared anywhere but in their kitchen. It was... More

This place is a hidden gem inside a mexican food store in Tumwater Plaza. The Wet Burrito (carnita's of course!) is HUGE! Fresh chips, two different kinds of salsa, Jarrito's soda. Everything is fresh. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Specials daily.

Fresh tortillas, salsas, etc. We ordered takeout -- tacos, enchiladas, tamales, burritos and salsa. The food was flavorful / excellent. The prices are very reasonable.

This little place is connected to a Mexican store. Very much a locals delight. Each meal is large enough to share. Service was wonderful. Fresh tortillas all the time. When finished we bought a pack of them to take home. Flan not the best.

This is an amazing place. Authentic Mexican food off the beaten track. We had Pozole, wet burrito, tacos -- terrific. Very different from the typical American joint.

The Wet burrito is as big as pictured! Enough for two. You can order the beer right from the store's frig. Very reasonable. Great place with good service. Great value but no real atmosphere. That is only reason I didn't give this restuarant a 5.

A great, family-run Mexican joint. The torts buns were among the best I've had, and the al pastor was top-notch. Very big portions, so be prepares to take home too.
