Great Spot!

Always good! I have never had a bad meal there been there many times! Specially good if you're staying at the Oxford suites or Oxford in right next-door on the river!

Was our first visit to El Mirador & both my husband & I were very impressed. We went with our daughter in law & two grandson who live in Yakima & love El Mirador. Enjoyed our meal & staff were great.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the front desk clerk at our hotel. It was a fantastic experience start to finish! Complimentary chips, salsa, and refried beans before we'd even ordered! Great service. Best margarita ever. Terrific ambiance with colourful decor. Good food, but a lot of it!! We couldn't eat half! Can't wait to eat there again on... More

If I could give this place zero stars I would. Just came from there and feel queasy. Started out alright until I took a drink from my lemonade and found a roach floating in it.

We have made this our go to lunch when we are running errands in Yakima. Wonderful friendly people, excellent margaritas, (if you have a full table, you can order a pitcher) and many exciting specials you really cant get anywhere else. Fresh tortillas made where you can watch, spacious interior, and a nice deck for dinner outside.

Ate here because we were staying next door. Looked pretty average from the outside. Inside was much more spacious feeling and comfortable. Busy, but the friendly waitstaff did a good job keeping up with the crowd. The locals must know about this place. Good food, good service, good price for the LARGE portions.
