Tri-Cities and the Eastern Gorge

We've been slowly working our way around our great State. One of the problems of traveling in Central and Eastern Washington is the dearth of chow-worthy places to eat. Any places to recommend in the Tri-Cities or Eastern Gorge areas?

  1. Not fancy, but look for authentic Mexican if you like that sort of thing. Tacos Los Primos #2 in Yakima is great, as is El Manantial on S. Main Steet in Ellensburg. The place in Yakima is a funky Taco stand on 1st avenue, in a laundromat parking lot. Some of the best tacos I've ever had. El Manantial is a small, clean sit-down restaurant with a larger menu, everything made from scratch, burritos, sopitos, tacos, and more. The owner makes excellent Tamales on the weekends.
