I went for dinner and ordered the xochimilco margarita…it was very, very good - huge and when the glass was filled at the table from the shaker the shaker was left on the table for a full second refill! I ordered their special chicken mole. It was really, good and authentic. It was $30 for one person for those two menu items (mole and cocktail) but was well worth it as it was huge portions for both and very delicious. I will go back again for sure!

You wont regret this place. We stopped in on the 4th of July and it was open. Several of thje other Mexican places were closed. The food portions were generous. The salsa and chips kept coming and the grande margaritas were just what we needed. Perfect in every way. Our server: Yesenia was very tolerate of our speaking in spanish, since we are trying to learn and use the language, we have to take every opportunity. She was great and even continued to speak to us in spanish (which we only got part of) but that is our fault. She was fantastic, not making us feel stupid in any way. Customer service is really the most important factor in a service industry like a restaurant. Would definitely go to this place again.

They are REALLY nice people. Some of our dishes were yummy (EX: creamy chicken, enchilada with green sauce), but the fajita meat was too tough and chewy. The worst was that the red enchilada sauce has peanut butter in it and our daughter is VERY allergic. OUr fault as we didn't ask--just never had PB in mexican food. They felt awful--but it ruined the meal. And now I'm not feeling so good--time for some antacid.

Located off the beaten path at 2304 Nob Hill in Yakima, this small family restaurante serves up the best mole dishes that can be found. Not the chocolate-sweet mole that's so often found in Mexican restaurants in the USA, this mole is very especiale. Smokey and spicy, their mole topped on pozole (hominy, with shredded chicken) is right out of Vera Cruz! Great service, nice small atmosphere of a very friendly family restaurant. Everything is home made. It is definitely worth traveling a long way for. It's a bit off the main drag, but search it out, and you won't be disappointed.

We have been searching Yakima for a decent Mexican restaurant-one we would return to and recommend. Finally, we have found one. We ordered cheese and onion enchiladas with mole. They were absolutely fabulous. My husband confessed he was tempted to get an order to go, so he could have them for lunch the next day. We travel through Yakima about twice a month, and now are looking forward to a yummy meal on our trips. The salsa was also very good.
