“All the negative reviews were made forever ago, so take them with a grain of salt. Staff are very friendly, and the food was amazing! Took a bit to come out, but the servings were huge! Needless to say, we have leftovers but we aren't mad about it at all. My one critique is that the carne asada seemed overcooked. Overall, definitely worth the visit! Would recommend“

“Great little family run Mexican food restaurant. It meets multiple criteria. First of all, authentic Mexican cooking isn’t going to come from a high school kid cranking out tacos. The kitchen and staff are authentic. Next criteria, when you see the restaurant packed with Hispanic diners, it’s a very good sign (never understood why Taco Bell checks that box often)The food and service were excellent. We will definitely be back!“

Prices are great, which will keep me coming back. The GUYs that work there are AWESOME, friendly, and actually have customer service skills. Can't say the same for the one vieja that works there, anyways I'll still continue to show my support for this establishment for the men that work there!“

“I just went there and there was a man that was mentally ill that I tried giving money to. He couldn't hardly speak but I got the hint he wanted food. I gave them $5 for food for him. I know it wasn't enough to cover his meal but as I was watching from the rearview mirror I could see them passing him the food. Thank you so much for that! Everyone knows this place has good food that's why everyone goes there but it takes good people to do that for someone.“

“Fast, fresh, friendly and fantastic family owned find❣️. You might find Mama talking your order or chatty Erik or more fam. Food is excellent. Limited menu, but that’s good. And there are currently sweet EMPANADAS!! They’re small, delicate and delectable.I love the pineapple and Nutella is an option. My uncle loved the cocoa flan. 😍 I think my fave taco place is now a contender for an espresso stop with, did I mention, EMPANADAS!?!“

“Great breakfast. As someone from Texas who misses a weekend plate of migas, the Huevos a la Mexicana breakfast was a treat. Generous portions and freshly prepared. My wife ordered the Chorizo con Huevos, and she loved them as well.BTW... They have an extensive Salsa Bar where tostadas are available, so I was able to create psudo-migas!.“

“I had no idea that Los Hernandez Tamales had a second location. I was really questioning the GPS when it was leading us there but it didn't lead us astray at all. I knew only of the Union Gap location which is not far from the Interstate and just a little south of the Yakima city limits. But this location does indeed have a Yakima address. In some ways I like this location a little more. There is just a few more tables and seats at this location than the other and if you want a beer to go with your meal you can have one. Menu is a little bit expanded as well which I am sure is good but we can never pass up these James Beard award winning tamales when we are in the area. The tamales are as good as ever. I had a pork one and a Jalapeño one and they were just out of sight like they always are. We get the meal usually and the rice and beans that comes along with the tamales are just stellar. So very glad to know that another location exists in Yakima. It's a bit of a drive from the Interstate, twenty minutes about but the extra bonuses would make it worth it not that the Union Gap location doesn't deserve just as much love.“

“After being a customer for 15+ years, needless to say- this is my favorite taco place in town. I love the fact that the food here is wholesome. Ingredients are simple and I can order with confidence knowing the side of beans for my infant are not fried in lard and the tortillas are not dipped in oil. Just delicious handmade corn tortillas with whole toppings. What keeps me coming back is their fiery habanero salsa which never fails to disappoint!“
