Yum!

If you are near by key arena and need a place to grab a bite look no further. The pork and pulled beef were amazing.

Everything was cooked before your eyes and it was almost like a subway setup. A bit pricy for fast food. The tacos are recommended!

After our trip to the top of the Space Needle, my husband, grandson and I enjoyed a very good lunch in the Armory building. There are several places to eat there, and our grandson made a great choice by picking Blue Water. You line up at a counter to order your food, and watch as everything is assembled exactly as...

There is no option to choose the armory location on Trip Advisor yet so this is as best as I can do. The food was very good. They had both Pacifico and Negra Modelo on tap which is always a good beer option. The street tacos are just that, Mexican street tacos. Had the Carnitas Tacos that were pretty good.

The food was great, fast, and well priced. I ordered a salmon taco which was delicious. My husband got the quesadilla special and enjoyed it too! There is a choice between black and pinto beans which is nice for a fast place. The restaurant is not air-conditioned which only matter in Seattle in the middle of a heat wave, so... More

Stick with the tacos, they are yummy. Options for chicken, fish, steak, etc. Great house margarita, cute little outside area out back. We always eat here when we are in the area.

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
