The Yakima Valley is certainly no stranger to good Mexican food. And more often than not, you’ll find the best Mexican cuisine not in the big shiny buildings, but in the out-of-the-way, unassuming buildings and the small taco trucks. Los Hernandez is no exception. If you ever pass by their small Union Gap location, you’d never know that this is the place that won a prestigious James Beard Award a few years ago.

One thing is certain: if you’re a fan of tamales, you should never miss this place.

Have you ever tried the best tamales in Washington?
