This is a quaint, family owned Mexican restaurant in Yakima. Always packed, they offer fresh food that isn't dripping in cheddar cheese and covered in lettuce - instead they use more authentic white Mexican cheese and cabbage. I usually have the cheese Taco Frito and a chicken taco which comes with two small white corn shells and enough filling to make it into 2 tacos, the perfect amount of food and all for less than $10! They also have an array of salsas in a variety of flavors, textures and colors. I do believe they charge extra for the full size tortillas they bring out, but they are great! My one complaint is that they are usually so packed the service isn't super great, but you just have to keep trying to get their attention if you want something.

Overall a great experience!

We were traveling through Yakima and on the search for good mexican food. Wow did we find it at Antojitos Mexicanos! The restaurant is simple with nice colorful decor but the flavors really shine. When they offered Tortillas Chips and the young lady brought out 7 differnt salsas for us to choose from, we know we found a gem.

We had great tacos - fish, chicken, beef, pork and tongue.
The guacamole was made fresh and oh so good.

We will be back again on our way through Yakima

Quick, efficient service and real down home Mexican food. Antojitos Mexicanos is one of the best spots in Yakima. A bit off the beaten path of the downtown corridor this restaurant is well worth the drive.

Generous portions of hand made food. Can't Beat It!!!

My husband and I were on the hunt for authentic Mexico City-street-style tacos. This was exactly what we found in this out of the way place in Yakima. The name of the place was our first clue that it had what we were looking for. We shared a side of "chips" which were tostadas, with a myriad of salsas and a side of fresh guacamole. Fresh and tasty. We each had tacos, served on homemade corn tortillas, with our choice of meats and topped with the expected cilantro and onion. They were fresh, hot, served quickly, and filling! We couldn't finish the side of refried beans that we shared. I think our whole meal came to $25 or so. This was a great find! We will go back when in Yakima.

Busy family-run place. We were seated and served very quickly, but we arrived just after 5to beat the crowds.

My chile verde was delicious. Rich and beautifully seasoned. My husband's enchiladas were also good, but the brought him chicken instead of the beef he ordered.

The salsa's were excellent! We tried four of them. Nice homemade tortillas and refried beans made with lard.

My only peeve was that the margarita tasted like it was made with Mountain Dew! Overly sweet and really NOT good. Disappointing with such good food.
