Here are some kind words on YELP from some of our past customers.
The owners, Jose and Ana, are wonderful. They forgive you for the time you ran into them all drunk at the Beacon and spent twenty minutes begging them to come hang out after hours, and Ana always asks “Where’s Nick” when you show up with anyone other than Nick. She’s like your grandma, if your grandma makes really good shrimp tacos.
The owner came over while we waited and proceeded to converse with us. She asked if we were neighbors and when we replied yes she was very excited. She explained how her dream was to walk around the neighborhood, shop, then come back and cook all day to have the neighbors over for dinner. That really impressed me and made me feel very welcome. She told us how opening the place had been a long time coming and about the hardships they experienced. The roof caved in on them!! They had to rent a container, take everything out, and rebuild. Amazing really, and all the more reasons to visit and eat with them.
On a Saturday I watched them bring out *huge* bowls of posole with fresh cabbage piled on top. This reminds me of my grandma’s cooking.
By far one of the best and most authentic Mexican restaurants in Seattle.
The horchata here is the best I’ve had anywhere. Hands down.
Best guacamole and chips I’ve had in Seattle, and real Mexico City-style cooking.
