Yakima is a beautiful town and gets a bad rap from people who've never even stepped foot in Yakima county. I've discovered a lot of amazing things, restaurants, bars, theaters you name it.

However, I've come up with a shortlist of things I think could make Yakima even better. This is all coming from a point of view of someone who lived on the west side of Washington their entire life, so by the end of this list, if you disagree or think we need something else send me a message.

3.) Qdoba

When it comes to Mexican cuisine there's nothing better than the Yakima valley. I thought Mexican food was alright until I moved here, now it's one of my all-time favorites. Honestly, the only restaurant I miss from the west side was Qdoba, they make giant burritos and do burrito bowls, it's set up like Subway but again with Burritos.

2.) Katsu Burger

This one is an acquired taste but almost everyone I've met who's had it falls in love with it. They're Japanese-styled burgers, made with Japanese Mayo, Japanese burger buns and the meat of your choosing is breaded and deep-fried. The flavors blend together and leave your tastebuds begging for more. They even have amazing sides like their nori fries which are sea salt fries with pieces of seaweed chopped into tiny flakes giving you super savory flavor.

1.) Dave and Busters

This place is an absolute must if you love gaming, good drinks and, tasty food. It's the perfect spot to celebrate a birthday or just have a fun night out. It's family-friendly and has plenty of space to run around and adventure around finding your favorite game. Whether you love playing shooters, arcade games, racing games ect the list goes on for quite a while.
