Great Taco’s

My son Ben & I went to get take-out Burrito’s and Taco’s while Nancy & Cindy passed out Halloween candy. Nancy, Cindy, & Ben had very good Burrito’s; however, I think I hit the jackpot. I ordered three small tacos, Lengua (beef tongue), carnitas (pork), and bone marrow. While I’ve had tongue and... read more

The seating area looks like a small, old fast-food restaurant.. but the kitchen makes absolute magic. My wife and I visited for lunch and enjoyed our food- I had a torta, my wife had tacos, and we each had the purple hibiscus-flower drink. Muy sabroso!

I was extremely shocked how delicious this food was. Maybe I judged the interior and exterior first. It looks like a taco bell. Food was authentic Mexican and was very good. We all enjoyed. A local recommended it, and we were so glad we tried it out. I would recommend and will be back next visit to Shoreline.

This place is a sleeper. Looks like fast food from the street, but the food is far better. Fresh, well prepared and priced well for what you recieve. It was clean and organized. Both our our dinners, Taco salad and Chipotle barrito. Both were well prepared and spiced. They also provide a large salsa bar. It was chilled, clean and... More

Super delicious food for great prices. I really liked the chicken tacos. Parking is decent but can be tight when it's busy. It shares the lot with the pho place across the way.

Their food is pretty standard fast food Mexican but their salsa bar is great! They have hot pickled carrots and jalapenos that are good to have while you wait. The chile relleno is the best thing on the menu.The enchiladas are too small.

We have been customers for a while, but reached new heights tonight. Our usual orders are: for tortas, mulitos, and of course tacos. In the mood for something different, I ordered Chile rellenos. Got them home, and WOW. Husband and I agreed (not a usual occurrence) it was the best we have ever had. We visit family in Yakima often... More

Always friendly service and the best tacos in North Seattle. Portions are generous and cater to all appetites. Try the jamaica agua fresca! Please open a location in London!

Yes this used to be a Taco Bell back in the 70's (I remember the Enchiritos fondly) but don't let that deter you! Sopitos are one of my favorites and are often difficult to find. When I saw them on the menu I was hooked! Soft, thick corn tortillas filled with beans and your choice of meat. Topped with caso... More
