Decided to try this place on my last visit and it was amazing so much so that I went back this visit. Like some have said, this hole in the wall, no frills eatery serves some great Mexican food. They have variety of tacos and...the taste was oh so good. The nice thing about their tacos is that they don't skimp on the fillings. If you're in the area, definitely try this place. I know I'll be back.More

First time we went it was delicious, second time, it tasted so bland and the chicken in the dish actually tasted canned. Canned chicken is an unpleasant taste memory from childhood so that doesn't work for me.

One of the last places to get decent and affordable food in Capitol Hill. This hole in the wall offers real Mexican food with no frills, just friendly service and huge portions. The cheese quesadilla is my mainstay.

We ate here as a family of three, and only realized when our food came to the table that we ordered way too much. The portions are huge! Food is very, very good. This is a small restaurant- only a few tables. It looks like...most of the business they do is takeout.More

Just an update to let you know, that the location has changed... it is now, (late 2012), inhabiting a much smaller storefront, north of Pike street (between Pike and Pine) on the same, westside of the street. Much more intimate space!

I always eat at Tacos Guaymas when in Seattle. This location is near the QFC grocery store at the corner of Pike and Broadway on Capitol Hill. The food is reasonably priced and although not everything I've tried has been great, the tacos are a...surefire hit. The nacho chips are very tasty, and if you ask for salsa, you will get the stewed salsa (blended up salsa) that looks like it comes from a jar. Best to get the pico de gallo fresh cut salsa at the salsa bar at the far end of the restaurant -fresh and delicious. There are about 8 different salsas to try, my other favourite is the orange, creamy looking one made from arbole chilis. Spicy, hot yet creamy.... The guacamole here is also very good, although the portion for $7 is quite large. Wish they had a half portion which would be ample. The ceviche I've had twice now, and it's too rubbery for me... almost cured too much. The tacos however, done is soft shells are very good, and two are filling for the average person. I always get the al pastor (bbq pork) and either a chicken or shrimp. All are very good. They have bottomless refills on pop, and the staff are always smiling and inviting. Very friendly. Just wish they would change their billboard sized menu to something a bit more approachable. Also, changing the photos from the bleached out green to more vibrant, current photos would make the food look more appealing! Overall, unpretentious, family oriented, and quite a few places to sit. They're open late til 3am on weekends!More
