Delicous family restaurant

I had the combo with an enchilada and tamale- tasty and fairly priced. They have excellent chips and salsa, great customer service, fast, and consistent!

Stopped in on a whim. We didn't check out reviews or ask around first. The great news is we made the right choice. Located in a heritage building it has a charming atmosphere. They decor is nice without going over the top. The exposed brick walls were what did it for me. The menu is large but I am sure... More

Arrived in Port Townsend after being in Port Angeles for the Dungess Crab fest , we had a big day on the road and visiting the sights in Port Angeles we were ready for a break from seafood. After looking through the available information on local restaurants we picked El Sarape. What an unexpected little gem in this area. After... More

El Sarape expertly delivers what Mexican restaurants do best. They have extravagant, "in-your-face" decor , an extensive menu, large, plate filling portions -all at budget friendly prices that allow at lot of people to eat and drink lavishly at a reasonable cost. Right on Main St. We loved it!

After a long day of touring the park, we just chanced it, and the food was great, staff was friendly. Looks like a family run operation with standard Mexican fare, but the food is fresh and nicely prepared. Beware the portions are big. We ordered 1/2 Nachos for an appetizer and it would have been enough for a whole dinner.... More

I have eaten here on occasion for the last ten years. This is a clean, family run business that makes the best nachos ever. Try the Nachos el Sarape. A half order is a nice lunch for one. They are out of this world.

We enjoyed the Mexican food we had El Sarape. It was fresh, good and in large enough quanities to satisfy our hunger after a day of driving. We all had enchiladas-beef, seafood, spinach-cheese and chicken and we really liked them all. I would recommend stopping off at El Sarape if you are visiting Port Townsend, WA.

We parked in Port Townsend and my wife like the smell emanating from this restaurant. After walking around we found ourselves back here for lunch. Service was excellent, the chips and salsa were above average and we sat at a window table and people watched. My wife had a taco salad and margarita. I enjoyed the seafood burrito which had...
