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

I average a trip to Taqueria el Sabor about once a month. Their food is always fresh and addictively tasty. The employees are great and are just as comfortable with speaking Spanish as English. They're one of the few places that has lengua available, and the menu is quite extensive. If you haven't tried them, and you enjoy Mexican food,... 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

We went to this place a few years ago when we visited in the area. It is worth the sacrifice of the basic decor for the home cooked food. Staff are very helpful and friendly, food is tasty and the price is right. Don't miss the turn off to this coral and green painted little building with parking at the... More

We've been going here for years: the first time just because we were driving by at lunchtime. It is counter service, but the food is very good, and consistently so. Everything tastes fresh and never "rubbery" like many larger Mexican restaurants. It is a simple place and the seating is fast-food type, but the food is very, very good!

Only real aficionados will understand when I say that it is as good as a taco truck. Fresh salsa, nice people and you can sit down-unlimited horchata-

I ordered 4 tacos, and had to go back for one more. The salsa choices....all freshly made.....were spicy and delicious. I saw so many interesting dishes in front of other diners, I just know I have to go back again and again. Very clean. Reasonably priced. Excellent food. How did I not know this place was in the 'hood? So... More
