The BEST street tacos that I have ever had!! So good! The flavor is soooo good! I've tried so many other dishes which are amazing too!
Went to Tonala because we were getting a phone repaired in the same strip mall, WOW, think we just stumbled upon the best Mexican food I have had in Washington. Great food, great service and the restaurant has a great vibe. Will definitely be back. Open a bit further north please :)
We visit the Tacoma location at least twice a month. The atmosphere is very pleasant and the staff and owner feel like family to us. We are always greeted with hugs and taken care of like royalty. The food never disappoints. On my most recent visit I ordered Carne Asada & Camarones. It was amazing, as all the meals I've ever had here. I've tried multiple dishes and every one of them could be a favorite of mine. Could not say enough about the experience here. Wonderful, wonderful people and food!
Tonala has become our favorite Mexican Restaurant in Pierce County. We have tried El toro, Azteca and Moctezuma; Tonala is way better. The food portions are amazing; we always have left over food. The taste is out of this world delicious. The staff are awesome and very accommodating and attentive. Highly Recommended.
I tried the crab & it was yummysherew ! Ill try the shrimp this Friday 😀 Love this place & their staff ❤
I love the avocado tostada, I'm vegan and if you don't get the sour cream it works for my diet! If you're not, it's a very delightful meal and light so you don't feel too full!
My favorite dish @ Tonala's, the steak fajitas. Thank you for making it special, unable to have bell peppers, extra onions all the way. Everyone at the Spanaway Tonala's are always friendly. Our 16 year old's favorite restaurant!! Highly recommend Tonala's to all.
was pleasant surprised at the flavor an the large size of the burro.after living in Arizona for 43 years you made me feel right at home. thank you
Very good, good portions too. We try something new on Fridays. Everything we've tried is yummy. The staff is very friendly & always make sure you're happy . I love them 😀 Connie
I'm 27 weeks pregnant and the Lobster enchiladas satisfied every craving! Delicious!
So so gooood. Rich, creamy & flavorful. Would definitely order again, but I'm still working my way through the menu!
The flavor was amazing. Best Mole I've had. I would definitely order again!
This is my favorite dish here! The carne is cooked to perfection with the perfect amount of seasonings, and fresh grilled vegetables inside! It's so good!
Wow. Tonala has become my go to restaurant in Tacoma. I'm talking, once or more a week! Whether I'm ordering to-go over the phone, through door-dash or I'm dining in, I'm always impressed with the customer service, speed, and quality of their food. The restaurant is SO clean and tidy, very spacious and comfortable. From the minute I walk in the door, the waiter's are SO kind and SO friendly and you can tell they love their job and they're so happy to assist. The bartender is quick and makes a solid drink. Always yummy, the margarita is the best. And the food. Oh my gosh, the food. It's spectacular every time. I love the asada and chorizo street taco's! Usually my go to but I've also had other dishes and have loved them all. They keep the chips and salsa coming but even then, it doesn't take them long to get our meals out. I love Tonala in Tacoma and I will continue to be a favoring customer.
Such a cute place! Really cool bar area, apparently a night club on saturdays. The burrito was MASSIVE. Like such a good deal for the price. I'll definitely come back.
As always, never a bad meal. The sauces are fresh made and salsas good enough to bottle and sell. The meat is well seasoned and beans cooked perfectly.
I had this dish at their Tacoma location. It was absolutely phenomenal! I added all three meats (carne asada, chicken, and shrimp). This is a large meal, great if you come with a big appetite.
Had the Chicken fajitas and the fajita burrito. Me and my husband LOVED both of our things. I think their chips & salsa along with their rice is THE BEST we've had around here. And then fajitas were awesome. I love going here and picking up for an easy dinner. Definitely recommend.
Beyond delicious, babies even liked it definitely will be back and will be telling all friends and family
Best street tacos ever!! So much flavor and very filling. My favorite item on the menu by far, and it's the only item I get anymore (although everything else is amazing too!)
I always tell myself I'm going to order something different when I go in, but I just love Tonala's shrimp burrito sooooooo much. Its literally the best thing I've ever tasted. It is a big burrito with crab, shrimp, scallops, mushrooms, an amazing sauce, cheese, green onions, and tomatoes on top. I have also enjoyed the shrimp/lobster/crab enchiladas, the fish tacos, the seafood soup (I'm a seafood lover). Great place, great food, great service!
The best pollo al a crema I've ever had. We frequent Tonala once a week! Love this place!
Not only were these absolutely out of the world, Tonala's is the only Mexican restaurant that I've ever eaten at that had Lobster on the menu. There drinks are fabulous as well.
Just like home made!
The taquitos were excellent and filling. I usually order the chicken fajitas which are also excellent but forced myself to try something new for me. We were a party of 7 and no one was disappointed. Good food excellent service.
This is one of my favorite. I'm making it my goal to try everything on the menu so fare it has been a win win in flavor
I've had these a few times and they are amazing. The meat is tender and the avocado on top of everything makes it even better. I highly recommend these.
Id eat here everyday if I could!! So delicious! Everyone is like family there!!
Yum. Yum. Yum. No joke.
My boyfriend orders this EVERY time we come here. Every. Time. It's a great dish, sometimes I even get a bite.
This is the best Mexican restaurant there is in Spanaway. Probably all of Washington. Pollo a la creama is my go to dish to eat. The best flavor. Very good portions for the price.
you Should Try this. "There Great". (As a Tiger once said)
Best I've ever had!!!
Melts in your mouth, can't get enough.
This is by far the BEST dish there! If I'm not getting the Happy Hour special, this is my go-to. Delicious. Lots of meat, onions, peppers, bacon, avocado slices, and their amazing sauce. It comes with flour or corn tortillas, but I just eat it with the sour cream, salsa, beans, rice. Enough for 2 to share, or I get it and eat leftovers for lunch the next day.
Had the beef burrito supremo. I love their burrito...it's soooooo good with all the stuff inside. Not your average basic burrito. Love to top it with Guacamole & sour cream.
I actually had the dinner combo with a burrito and tamale. Both were delicious, although drowned in sauce, which in my world, burritos and tamales are dry. The wait staff was very young and a bit inexperienced, the host told me we couldn't sit at the bar because there was no bar seating...there was confusion, I would believe it was her first night at her first job. But no worries, they were very polite and helpful otherwise, I'm sure they'll improve. Will come back again.
We had Asada tacos , taquitos rancheros, arroz con pollo, chips , salsa and taquitos. This is by far the most authentic food I have found in WA state. Wonderful food, Great service,nice atmosphere. Oh and the salsa is amazing
The best carne asada ever. The staff is beyond AMAZING!
