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.

We took our elderly parents to Ramirez today for lunch. The place was not too clean and the chair cushions had big splits in them. We placed our orders, and when they came, three of the four orders were wrong. Two of us had to ask for utensils. Finally, the beef fajitas were so tough as to be inedible. We... More

WORD OF MOUTH by my helpers got me started on their big wet burritos. They quickly became a weekly experience. THEY RECENTLY EXPANDED, the food remains a top experience.

Friendly staff, small place but great service, very tasty food! The Wet Burrito was huge and the best I have ever had! Great place! Plenty of vegetarian options. Very reasonable prices.

I loved the fresh tortillas u can fry up @ home. If you need groceries for Mexican dishes this is a good place to shop. I tried the chicken tacos, didn't like.

Kinda liked that it was in a mexican store at first, but after our not very fluent in english speaking server spent half her time talking with people in the store, it lost its novelty. The burrito I ordered, while decent in size, was not very good at all. The habanero sauce, while spicy, tasted very cheap. Add to that... More

I really like their food. They have great chips, homemade tortillas, their prices are great, and I love their salad with beans and lots of fresh veggies and salsa on top. I would give them five starts, but a recent trip, the waiter explained that they re-use their salsa if the current customer doesn't eat it all. I haven't been... More

The staff is also very friendly and helpful! I have already taken two of my friends there who say they were very pleased and... More

Enjoyed the conversation with him. Also talked with the owner who explained his restaurant to me. Everything here is Home Made, from Salsa, Tortillas and... More

Always searching for great tamales across this great nation of ours. Found them in PNW. Really good pork tamales. Huge; masa was perfect; pork was melt in your mouth with perfect (mild) seasoning. Need to try their version of 'buy a dozen to take home' (maybe at Christmas). For sit down meal, these were done right. It is actually a... More
