Today was a beautiful blue sky Pacific Northwest day. We decided to take the convertible, top down, to Orting for late lunch; it is only seven miles away. Easy drive, very little traffic.
There are only a couple choices in Orting, we decided to visit Los Pinos Family Mexican Restaurant, 228 Washington Avenue S. I was leaning towards Tim's Kitchen, but Kathy noticed there were a lot of vehicles in the parking lot. The restaurant has been there seven years and the owner is Clementina Perez and our server was one of her nephews. He was very polite and seemed to be service oriented.
The prices seem reasonable, I love the chairs around the tables, with their hand carved style and on the top of the booths, they have Mount Ranier carved in relief. The food came out pretty quickly, as is common for Mexican restaurants. The food was fine, we didn't do anything exotic, I was craving enchiladas, they were a bit too salty, but good, and Kathy surprised me by ordering two chicken tacos and a side of guacamole.
They also do catering, you can give them a call at 360.893.2333. If you are in Orting, drop in. On the way back there was a police checkpoint, but we did not get pulled over.
