We are happy to have this family run restaurant in our neighborhood. We often enjoy their offerings. I am most impressed with the variety of the menu for such a small restaurant, the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the food. The carnitas are excellent and a family favorite especially in their handmade tacos. For a snack or... More

Boy this is a gem! Great local Resturant. Food and pricing are outstanding. No table service you go up and order, and if they can they will bring it to you. No beer, which would be an added plus. Salsa bar with great choices and tasty salsas, the real deal!

My son Ben & I went to get take-out Burrito’s and Taco’s while Nancy & Cindy passed out Halloween candy. Nancy, Cindy, & Ben had very good Burrito’s; however, I think I hit the jackpot. I ordered three small tacos, Lengua (beef tongue), carnitas (pork), and bone marrow. While I’ve had tongue and pork tacos before, the crisp bone marrow... More

The seating area looks like a small, old fast-food restaurant.. but the kitchen makes absolute magic. My wife and I visited for lunch and enjoyed our food- I had a torta, my wife had tacos, and we each had the purple hibiscus-flower drink. Muy sabroso!

I was extremely shocked how delicious this food was. Maybe I judged the interior and exterior first. It looks like a taco bell. Food was authentic Mexican and was very good. We all enjoyed. A local recommended it, and we were so glad we tried it out. I would recommend and will be back next visit to Shoreline.

This place is a sleeper. Looks like fast food from the street, but the food is far better. Fresh, well prepared and priced well for what you recieve. It was clean and organized. Both our our dinners, Taco salad and Chipotle barrito. Both were well prepared and spiced. They also provide a large salsa bar. It was chilled, clean and... More

Super delicious food for great prices. I really liked the chicken tacos. Parking is decent but can be tight when it's busy. It shares the lot with the pho place across the way.

Their food is pretty standard fast food Mexican but their salsa bar is great! They have hot pickled carrots and jalapenos that are good to have while you wait. The chile relleno is the best thing on the menu.The enchiladas are too small.

We have been customers for a while, but reached new heights tonight. Our usual orders are: for tortas, mulitos, and of course tacos. In the mood for something different, I ordered Chile rellenos. Got them home, and WOW. Husband and I agreed (not a usual occurrence) it was the best we have ever had. We visit family in Yakima often... More
