Of course, Rancho Bravo Tacos serves up tacos. While the $3 tacos are delicious, don’t skip out on the wet and cheesy burrito, bravo burrito, or rancho burrito, which are all stuffed to the max.

Señor Moose Cafe

Don’t let the unique name fool you, we can assure you that Señor Moose Cafe’s dishes are some of the best. Our favorite time of day to stop by would have to be for lunch and brunch, from 11:30 to 3 pm.

Tacos Chukis was born when one recent UW grad didn’t know what to do with his life. After riding a bicycle 1,700 miles to his hometown of Tijuana, he was greeted by his family and one dish: tacos. It was then and there that he’d decided to bring a taqueria to Seattle. Since then, the spot has grown into four locations, each with the perfect tacos.

Since 1996, El Camino has served traditional Mexican dishes to Seattle in a lively, inviting atmosphere. You’ll feel like you’re away from the PNW when gobbling down the vibrant flavors of Oacaxa and Southern Mexico.

Barrio serves modern Mexican food influenced by the northwest. We especially love their margaritas and have a hard time picking between the house margarita, blood orange margarita, and spicy margarita infused with ghost chilies.

Fogón Cocina Mexicana

Fogon is so delicious, and what we believe to be incredibly authentic. We love their shrimp in spicy tomato broth (cocktel de camarones), sopitos, and tortas made with lightly buttered and toasted local bread.
