Yesterday, while on our big adventure down to Omak, we stopped in at Rancho Chico in the pretty town of Tonasket. I think Don and I were the only two people that didn’tknow about this restaurant. The border guard told us about it the last trip we took and yesterday our landscaping crew all said it was the best place to go to.
Well…..they were absolutely right.It was like walking into Mexico and finding an eating establishment. It doesn’t get any more authentic that this. From the start, we were diving into a large bowl of warm tortilla chips, spicy sauce and a coleslaw consisting of onions, cucumbers, and cabbage.
Don and Kelly each ordered the Expresso Burrito consisting of pork, rice, beans and cheese, topped with guacamole, tomatoes, onions and topped with a salsa verde with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese. If licking the plate is an example of righteous etiquette, these two would have done it.
I ordered the Chimichanga which is made up of a rolled flour tortilla filled with shredded beef, lettuce, refried beans, rice and a beef, tomato, lettuce taco. WHEW! We all shared this one as well.
Some of the best Mexican food I have ever had. Price is only $$ and we will DEFINITELY be back. If you want to try it , drive to Tonasket and pay them a visit.
Their webpage is a work in progress but keep trying.
