My boyfriend and I were in Seattle for one night and really craving Mexican food. We looked up Mexican restaurants in the area and we found “el Puerco lloron” after reading the reviews we decided to go there. The location of the restaurant is really good. As soon as we walked in and saw the condition of the place my boyfriend wanted to go somewhere else. But I thought I would over look the filthy tables and floors and overall dingyness of the place for good Mexican food. While we looked through the menu the lady serving the food kept asking us if she could help us…in a rude way. Obviously we were looking at the menu and undecided if we even wanted to eat there. She kept asking so we decided to order. I ordered the carne asada tacos. As soon as she picked up the meat I regretted my decision of eating there! I was terrified. The carne asada looked like it had been sitting there 3 days. My boyfriend ordered cochinita which they were out so she offered cochinita Colorado instead. His food wasn’t bad. I ate one taco. Had a bit of rice and a bit of beans and I was done with that place. They were out of pico de gallo also. We left and I was so upset that we were visiting from Vancouver and wanted a good dinner for our only night in Seattle spend $30 for both of us for something they should have paid us to eat! I’m surprised how they’re even open. Why some people rate it a good place. How they make money? Because I’m definitely not going there ever again and make sure I tell people I know heading to Seattle not to come near that place. How it is that health inspection hasn’t closed them?
