To get any more authentic you'd need to go to San Diego. La Ultima is a sort of a hole in the wall joint but don't let that fool you. The food is great and the staff is friendly. Although there is no beer or wine they do have an excellent selection of Mexican soda (this is a big deal... More

Stopped in for a delicious dinner of arroz con pollo (husband had the carne asada) at this little restaurant located just off Main Street Tonasket. Not much to look at in decor and no free chips and salsa, but the food was flavorful and filling. They don't have a liquor license, but they do have Pepsi products made in Mexico... More

We decided to try La Ultima recently and learned that it is under new ownership. The food is SO GOOD and the prices are great! Very friendly service, we try to go at least once a month. Highly recommend for anyone who is in Tonasket.

The best authentic Mexican food in Tonasket. Very friendly service. Because this is authentic it does take some time to prepare, but the wait is worth it.

Was in Tonasket last week to participate in the area's wine harvest and discovered La Ultima. This a no frills place with terrific food at value prices, authentically prepared and served with a smile. Don't go if you want alcohol with your meal, just go if you want some tasty Mexican fare and friendly conversation. It will be a regular... More

We drove down from Osoyoos, BC and it worth every mile. By far, the most flavourful authentic homemade Mexican food outside of Mexico we have had. The owner Michael was so very friendly and gracious. He even made me a small glass of Horchata. I wish we lived in Osoyoos as we would come down at least a couple of... More

We have known Michael for some time now, and love the fresh made foods he provides. He always has a smile on his face, and makes you feel very welcome. My wife thinks his tamales are the best!
