Great ambiance, excellent food, speedy service. Love the black mole, it's so rich and velvety, it is truly sublime. And the fresh tortillas are delicious.

A friend had praised this place a while back and we happened to walk by it when figuring out what to have for dinner so we thought we'd finally try it. We anticipated it to be authentic and it is. The prices are pretty average but the portions were smaller than we're used to. Also, we had to pay for chips before our meal.

Still, it was all very tasty! The salsa bar has pico de gallo and five salsas from a mild verde to FIRE. We might try again when we're not starved.

Great spot!!. always packed but they move quick so you get a table fast.
the bartender was top notch. When I asked for sargrita to go with my blanco he made it from scratch .....rarely if ever seen...and it was so good.
Back to the food....amazing....I wanted to go back for dinner.
The next trip to Seattle I will spend one night in the Ballard area.
Ballard is getting better all the time.

The perfect place to go before hitting up the night life in Ballard. It's usually busy, but the tacos are very tasty here.

Plan on a long wait but it is worth it. They have a crowded stand up bar for waiting which is fun to pass the time. Once you get a seat, the food is great and the service is very fast.
