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

We were staying at the Sheraton around the corner and just wanted a quick diner-style breakfast. We were really surprised to find that the Blue Water Taco Grill serves a great breakfast. The food was fresh and the portions big. Delicious! We can't wait to test out the rest of the menu. Highly recommended!

Great fresh pinto beans with grilled shrimp tacos with delicious green and red salsa for only $8.00. How can you go wrong for dinner here? Everyone was super friendly and the bar and booths were quaint and I could people watch in my booth by the entrance and window to the street. I was a little hesitant about spending a... More

We'd previously eaten at 2 other Armory (near the Space Needle) restaurants before deciding to try Blue Water Taco Grill. We were enticed by the Happy Hour specials that included entrees, beer and margaritas. Each was only $5. I had the Barbacoa Street Tacos and a beer. The taco plate was served with 6 small tortillas made into 3 tacos,... More

I work in the area and frequent Blue Water Taco Grill several times per week. The line is sometimes out the door, but the food is worth the wait. The burritos are excellent - they offer several types of meats and have both black and pinto beans. Everything is freshly made for you as you walk down the line and... More

Loved the breakfast tacos and burritos. We were at the Sheraton Seattle downtown and it was across from our hotel. Had difficulty with ordering just because of the language barrier, but that's OK. The food was delicious and they corrected any mistakes. Would definitely recommend it as a local chain to try with very fresh food.

Although we live quite near, we had never tried this restaurant. We ordered one taco salad with grilled prawns and one with calamari. The salads were small with a lot of lettuce, a few pieces of tomato, and some chips on the side. The "prawns" looked like a few small shrimp and the calamari was only a few strips. There... More
