Try the shrimp ceviche

We rested in the Armory during the Folk Festival and found this place to have great chips, salsa, and guacmole but the star was the packed shrimp ceviche with just the right amount of heat and lots of shrimp

I don't know which came first, Chipotle Mexican Grill or Blue Water Taco Grill, but the idea is the same. They have an extensive menu and the longer you stand in line to order the more items you see. They make the food from fresh ingredients and offer lots of options. Your order is made as you watch. My family... More

We went to the Armory in Seattle Centre, looking for a quick lunch. The Mexican-style food was tasty and fresh, gave us lots of choices in our meal, and was inexpensive. The place was not very busy and it was a clean and comfortable place to eat. There was a band playing in the Armory and it felt like a... More

I popped in here for a late lunch by myself and had the chicken taco plate. I was being friendly to the staff but did not get any response back. I felt very uncomfortable sitting there by myself. The food was OK but nothing special. The chicken that was put on the tacos came from a big bowl of slop.... More

We ate here after spending the day at the Seattle Center. The nachos and quesadilla were both very good. The margarita was decent, too. I'd eat here again.

One thing I love about my neighbourhood there isn't many fast food chains. We do have a Taco Bell/KFC that's about it. So when I need fast Mexican food this is where I go. The food is very close to being traditional and is very good.

After attending an event at Seattle Center, we were hungry & thirsty so headed into the Armory to grab something. Happy surprise was the Blue Water Taco Grill. One of us was gluten-free, one vegetarian. I ordered the vegan quesadilla which was simply excellent. Just right amount of cheese, fresh tortilla and filling was Field Roast grilled with seasonings. Delicious...quick,... More
