Mexican restaurants seem a bit thin on the ground on Seattle. Barrio, about fifteen minutes' walk from downtown, is the best that I found during my February 2016 visit. Service was spot-on, the food was really good, they accommodated a large (22 person) party during...More

We sat at the bar and Travis was both friendly and helpful. The nachos were a bit greasy but tasted great. Other food was very good. The Rita's hit the spot.

One of my top latin american brunch spots, I love the bloodies and the chilaquiles are perfect after a night out. Get the full portion and take the leftovers home! They keep exceptionally well.
