In the nearby city of Union Gap a small restaurant, Los Hernandez, has garnered fame for years for their incredibly delicious tamales. In the spring they feature the wildly popular asparagus and pepper jack cheese tamales.

This week they won the coveted James Beard award for excellence!

Stop by Los Hernandez on your way to Zillah, and pick up some chicken or pork tamales for a great picnic treat, or pick up a dozen frozen to enjoy when you get back home.
