Great Mexican food in an area full of Mexican restaurants

When visiting friends in Zillah and Toppenish Washington we always try to get to this restaurant. Great food and very pleasant service. Prices may be a little higher than some other area restaurants, but portions are huge and sharing is very possible. Good for families, couples or singles.

New building (old one burned). Great atmosphere, great food and great service. My 96 year old cousin eats here at least once a week. He is known as uncle Ray by the staff. He was the guest of honor and the first customer when the restaurant reopened.

We've had Mexican food all over the southwest, but we've tried only a couple of places in eastern Washington. This one was definitely worth the stop. The complimentary chips and salsa were very good. The Mariscos Mexicana was delicious and the Chili Relleno was amazing. The house Margarita was good (and not expensive) but the house Riesling was nothing special.

Huge menu with lots of options. Excellent quality food, well prepared. Cold beer served in frosted glasses. Service was very good as they got everything correct for a group of 9 people. Chips and salsa were served warm and tasty. Would definitely go back.

Least favorite thing is the rice, it is too plain & not flavorful at all, but my favorite dish here is the seafood chimichanga, that i do love!!

Stopped here for lunch on a road trip. Encountered the Sunday lunch crowd. The place was BUSY, but the food was great & fresh, the staff friendly and the price was great. We had big "small" plates at $7 each. Would recommend!
