“Best Tamales EVER”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

We hadn't read any reviews of Los Hernandez, consequently we were unaware of their reputation. They have been featured in numerous publications and have been a favorite of travelers and locals for years. We just stopped because my husband loves tamales and it looked like the kind of place that would be good. They are fantastic! We were still able to get an asparagus tamale(seasonal). It was awesome-moist corn, melting cheese, little bits of asparagus and a chili kick! They also make pork or chicken (both were great). If we lived in the Yakima Valley this would be a weekly treat!

“Visit Number Four”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

Good place to visit for a great tamale, a low dollar out of the way location and a down home atmosphere.
The food and the service is a treat. Asparagus tamales when in season is what its all about.
Chicken or pork are the other options, love the salsa. I do not visit Yakima without stopping here.

Great tamales! Perfect balance of masa and meat, these are by far the best tamales I have ever eaten! Keep up the good work Phil and June! And just so everyone knows....these are definitely "home style"! Love them!

“The best tamales in the Northwest!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Superb tamales here, both pork and chicken. Great service in a very small shop. These folks know what they are doing. Great stuff, highly recommended.

“I stop here EVERY TIME I am thru Union Gap for the best Tamales”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

I have been stopping here for years. I live in Western Washington, but every time I go to the wine country in Eastern Washington I make a quick stop for Tamales. You can preorder, as 99% of the orders are to go. There is a limited number of tables inside to sit and eat, and believe me, after you walk in to get your order, the temptation to eat one there is overwhelming. It is an easy on and off the freeway, so next time you go thru Union Gap. stop by and order a dozen.
