bright colors and happy wait staff served typical but good food. There was nothing really out of the ordinary but at least you can always count on a consistent menu

To call Chico's colourful would be an understatement, but that just adds to the experience. I found this place originally by looking up restaurants in Oroville, near the border, on Trip Advisor. However, as my daughter and I were crossing into the States from Canada and i was explaining why we were going to the States for an hour and a half for dinner, the guard mentioned Chico's a bit farther south in Tonasket (versus the Mexican restaurant in Oroville). Compared to the best you can find in Mexico, this is only above average, however, given that Tonasket has not much more than a rodeo yard, orchards, a couple of bars and a gas station, this spot is magical. There's also nothing like it on the Canadian side. Oh, and they serve massive and very tasty margaritas (my daughter had a half of one and did the driving). We've gone back several years in row now and look forward to all the classical dishes - enchiladas, tacos, burritos, flat steak etc. The tortillas are especially nice and almost every meal comes with heaps of refried beans. For Canadians, one of the nicest aspects is a free basket of really crisp nachos and fresh salsa as soon as you sit down.

We had the occasion to stay at Tonasket last week and asked the motel owner where was a good place to eat. He told us about Rancho Chica. Well we went and we cannot say enough good things about this place. From the authentic mexican atmosphere to the great food and wonderful service, this place deserves a '10'. Our servers were great, well take a sombrero off the wall and had me wear it then posed with me. This place is well worth eating in!
