If you like authentic Mexican food this is the place for you. Also, you will not find any hamburgers or other fare if you have a kid or person along who doesn't like Mexican food. The menu seemed small. Prices I thought were comparable for the area. Home made chips and portions were a good size. Service was good. My... More

We were tired of shopping, and it was hot out. I didn't want to be stuck inside a dark bar, so we came here. Its on the top floor of the mall, and one of the only places i know of with outdoor seating not on street level. We a bit of a wait, so we sat at the bar.... More

I found this place after eating at Cactus and being a little disappointed. I ordered the chicken fajita tacos with a Pacífico and it was amazing! ! Ask for some Oaxaca sauce on the side--it's delicious!

OMG! This margarita was fantastic. I didn't get the bartender's name but he said he made the best margarita in the west, trust me it is! I had the Mexican chopped salad with shrimp, it's delicious. I also liked their chips and salsa. Salsa is just the right level of spicy. Beautiful location!

During our stay in Seattle, we ate dinner here twice, in part, because it was close to our hotel. The restaurant offers comfortable seating and a pleasant ambiance. The food was good with a few twists on old favorites. Each time the place was busy but the staff was friendly and efficient. Overall, they do a good job.

I had the chimichanga, and that was soooo good. Great flavor, the food felt fresh and well prepared. Fair prices too. Our server, Walter, was super polite, fun to talk to and gave us excellent service. I would definitely go back here!

I'm a big fan of Mexican food, (probably Americanized Mexican) and this was no disappointment. Fresh ingredients, presented well, and portions a bit more than the right size. The chips and salsa were very good as well. Beer was cold, but my sangria wasn't good at all, I'm pretty sure by the looks of the saturated fruit, and the sharp... More

We decided to eat here on a Sunday evening during a Seahawks game, so the restaurant, and mall that houses it, were nearly empty. Our server, Pierce, was very helpful as we navigated the drink menu. I started with the hibiscus margarita which was slightly floral without being "soapy," very tasty. I thought I was up for something more adventurous,... More
