El Sarape has several restaurants in the South Sound. All are about the same, good Mexican food. Love their Mole, some of the best. Also other choices that are good. Should know good Mexican food, full blooded Mexican. Raised on it. Tried some of the others in Shelton, not as good.

This place is always good. The food is good and the staff are nice. However, it's not the best Mexican restaurant in town and the prices are a bit steep

Small local Mexican fair. Quick service and good selection. Good margaritas, and Arros Con Pollo is my favorite dish. Chimi's are a good fast staple also.

Our school staff go here quite often for get togethers. The staff are always prepared and have enough staff on hand to accomodate our group. The food is always fresh, hot, and very good.

Had dinner there a few weeks ago. Average food and service. Not a bad place for family dinner. Would not consider a special place.

Same good food, but prices are higher. One person, no alcohol and my bill was $21.19, with automatic 18% gratuity. Got charged $4.00 for open food? Is that chips? Maybe our group needs to find somewhere else to eat.
