My favorite thing to eat here is the queso. It is phenomenal! Santiagos does not feel like a traditional Mexican restaurant but let me tell you, I have never been disappointed there!

It's been a while since we've eaten here, but it is very good. Not your usual "chicken enchiladas, rice & beans". Very good food, and the service was very good too. I'd take out of town guests here for a treat.

Nice little hole in the wall in downtown Yakima. The service was fair yet the food lacked taste. A bit on the spendy side with mediocre service.

Family owned and operated with an owner that can fill in at the kitchen and manage to work his way around the resturant to make everyone feel welcome. Make sure you have his award winning Chilli con conqueso appetizer while you study the menue. Fish...More
