We stopped on our drive to WSU and were so glad we did! The carne asada and pollo salsa verde were delicious!

Best Mexican Resturant in Othello! Great food and a prompt service make for a good dinning experience. Also, the new expansion was a a great addition to an already beautiful building. Overall, must stop location.

Yep, they have an excellent breakfast menu. And yes, american style food. I had a huge waffle, nice thick flavorful bacon, hash browns and coffee. Not a jalapeño in sight! I have also enjoyed their excellent mexican dinner menu.

Son had a soccer game here & decided to go to Checos. Not a place to go if you're on a time crunch but worth the wait. Tortas & tacos were great. Meat perfectly cooked. Charro beans are authentic. Service was good. Definitely worth another...More
