There is something to be said for the ability to create a perfect taco. I ate two of them at Rancho Bravos with a side of their summer corn. The corn is buttery and seasoned so it burns your lips (pleasantly so). It's the most authentic Hispanic food I've eaten since a trip I took to South America a few... More

I randomly came across this place and it was excellent. I know everyone thinks Seattle doesn't have good Mexican food, but this place stands up there with the great Mexican food from anywhere. I had a burrito with pork al pastor - it was big, filling and the pork and the beans had great flavor. There were a bunch of... More

This place was recommended to us by some locals, it looks like an old Bk or McDonalds drive thru that they have converted into a Mexican diner type! The food was incredible and great value! It was really busy when we went as it seems like a local hotspot but we still got a table and the food was ready... More

Ok. This is Seattle. Our mexican food tends to suck profoundly. Knowing that - this place is great when it's like 3am and you need a bag of tacos, but, let's be honest guys, it's not *good*. It's craaaazy cheap, so for the price and the hour of day when most people visit - it's amazing. But I wouldn't go... More

Pretty good Mexican food for being in Seattle. From the pork to the salsa, you won't find better in the area. And priced just right too.

A commercial painting friend of mine has been telling me about this spot for a long time. I was in the neighborhood so thought I'd give it a try. I have to agree with him.. This spot does sell the best taco in Seattle and for just 2 bucks. It sits east of Dick's drive-in, a long established hamburger joint,... More

Delicious tacos. I've never been when the tamales are available, but I hear they are bomb.

There is no lovely scenery, unless you like donut dumpsters, but the food is worth it. The staff is always friendly enough, and the tacos are amazing. Definitely the best value food in the Seattle area.
