After a long day of driving, checked into a motel in Tumwater. This place was recommended by motel. It is a store/ cafe with some sitting area and beer for sale. We were hoping for a "real" restaurant with some atmosphwre, wine, etc. As it was after 8:30 choices were limited. We ordered take away and fortunately had our own... More

Having grown up in California, I was missing great Mexican food until Ramirez came along. Everything is tasty here. I love the tacos. Service is friendly and efficient. Food is excellent. Atmosphere is unassuming,yet pleasant. It doesn't get any better than this in the PAC NW.

My wife had the wet burrito and I had the chille relleno. both were great ( I tried some of hers). I think we will stop in every time we pass... More

Homemade extensive menu made right on the spot, baked goods for sale, an accompanying store, super friendly atmosphere, easy on the ears environment, convenient location with generous parking. I recommend the champarado, a Mexican styled hot chocolate. Will cure any winter malaise.

A place we would have never found or even stopped @ if it had not been for Tripadvisor, thank you! If you want Mexican food this is the place, a huge take out business, in-house butcher shop, grocery and produce store and absolutely excellent food! If you are looking for fancy tables and stuffy over priced food do not go.... More

This is just a review on their tamales. I had ordered a couple to go from the restaurant. Very good. I have been back a couple times since to buy the tamales they have out of the freezer. I don't remember how much a bag of them, but very reasonably priced......tip, if you're not going to eat them right away,... More

From the Home style chips to the excellent waitstaff, I have found my newest favorite Local Mexican Restaurant! This Family style Restaurant/store has everything you could need to make your own authentic Mexican style dinners, and of course they also provide excellent examples of their own in the restaurant itself.

Excellent authentic Mexican food in a family operated restaurant & Mexican food market. We always enjoy stopping at Ramirez for dinner. The food is excellent, and we'll prepared. People are always friendly and helpful. Good selection of traditional dishes. They have pictures of most dishes on the wall for we gringos. The decor isn't much, but don't let that put... More

This is your typical great food at a Hole in the wall type experience. Family run Mexican store with a small food service area. Love the authentic family recipes. I particularly like the home fried tortilla chips with the green tomatillo sauce.
