  • This little Mexican restaurant may appear too slick to be good, but it is. Youve never seen an all-female line rock the kitchen the way they do. -Maria Hines, Top Chef
  • Best Mexican restaurant in Seattle. Next time you're there try the Chile Relleno, authentic home-style mexican food.
  • The only thing better than the mole, the salsa bar and the damn delicious casual Oaxacan food is how cheap it is to eat yourself silly. Brace yourself for a crowd, but it's worth it. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Everything on the menu is good. You aren't allowed to disagree. Its science.
  • This place has the best mexican food around
  • Mole, Mole and Mole.....
  • DO: Visit the salsa bar.
  • real, fresh, flavorful mexican food. So far, it's #1 on my mexican food category
  • Of course the food is amazing, salsa bar is great and the margaritas are lethal. But little known is how damn good the Lemonade is too!
  • The brick walls of old Ballard meet the terra-cotta tiles of old Mexico in the single most teeming, table-turning, earsplitting, salsa-sloshing sensation in town.
  • Close your eyes and blindly choose something to eat. And a margarita.
  • Tamales de mole Negro is ridiculous
  • Holy Mole! Do yourself right and get antything with mole sauce.
  • Mole baby...enough said!
  • Pork tamale, just do it.
  • CHICKEN MOLE!!!!!!!! Will make you moan and groan
  • Servers are exceptionally unfriendly, but the food make the trip worth a try; it's very flavorful and the prices are very fair.
  • Everything looks delicious here! I've tried the Mole' Negro Oaxaqueno and it was super!! Also serve yourself at the salsa bar!!
  • No matter how few days I'm home, I make plans to eat here. Best Mexican in the PNW. The Mole will have you licking the plate. Halibut tacos are a must-have as well.
  • Sit at the counter and watch the tortillas being made fresh to order.
