“Best Mexican restaurant in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

This is a good mix of authentic and Americanized Mexican food. They serve huge portions of everything. Definitely recommend to others and would eat there again.

“Bad Mexican food in Sunnyside? What a disappointment!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

In this part of the state one expects terrific Mexican food due to the talented hispanic population. We had looked forward to this meal for days, and El Valle did not deliver. We both ordered chicken taquitos, and after an eternity, they finally arrived, interestingly not looking alike. One plate had obviously been sitting out under the warming lights, after having been scorched in the making. Both plates were fiercely hot, and both dishes were dull and tasteless. Our server never came by again, and we finally were able to intercept the manager, who glumly took one plate off our bill (after asking if we wanted the remains packed up to go-uh, no). The server made a cute little pout when we paid her. Oh, please. We are sure there are great Mexican restaurants in the region, but folks, this is NOT one of them.

“Try the lamb”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Recommended by our hotel clerk as the best Mexican food in the Yakima Valley. We would not have found it from the street, because it is hidden behind the Country Inn, and the two businesses share a driveway and parking lot. Two of us shared the lamb shank dinner. The lamb and rice were especially tasty. The accompanying corn tortillas were fresh.
