We just love this taco truck, dedicated to Single Hill brewery customers. The tacos are delicious, owner Jose is super nice, and the beer and patio seating at Single Hill makes it all even more fun. The taqueso adobado is a fave snack or a torta asada when your tummy needs extra of everything. Don’t forget the salsa!

Arguably one of the most beautiful buildings in downtown, the Graham Baba-designed, family-friendly Cowiche Canyon Kitchen has become a downtown Yakima institution. We love the crispy chicken sandwich, the prime rib dip, the shrimp and avocado salad, and kid’s menu. If you’re looking for a bar scene, head into the gorgeous Icehouse bar (21+) for one of their original concoctions, like the Cowiche Cutter or Farm Water. If you can’t decide, we vote for a can of Rainier while you peruse the menu.
We’re downright devoted to this gem of a restaurant. Owners Dan and Mollie Koommoo have created one of the best restaurants in the state with this lovely, warm, fun eatery. While Dan is the star chef, their entire staff creates new and different dishes, keeping us curious and returning to see what’s new. The dishes are served family style, so get comfy with your dining party. We heart the chef’s menu for maximum dining enjoyment. In the warmer months, their patio is the place to be for special events, with a casual, upbeat vibe. While Crafted is a bit more upscale for the Yak, you can still wear jeans and bring well-behaved kiddos with adventurous palettes.
A bit of a cult-favorite, El Taco Loco is only open for lunch. But if you happen to be downtown during the week at lunch time, you’re in luck. It’s no secret the Yakima Valley has some of the best Mexican food in the state, and El Taco Loco is one reason why…probably because they are all about cooking with love and care.
