    Mama's is a rabbit warren of rooms, and tucked in the back like a secret is the bar. Chips and salsa so hot you must keep shoveling to quell the pain are an excellent base coat. bartenders friendly.

    There are more (and larger) tables through the back of the cafe. And their Coke bottles are Mexican so they've got real sugar in them, not of that HFCS :-) Nice.

    This has been one of my all time favorite comfort food spots on the planet sense I first went in September of 1974. Yup, their first year in business. There is NOTHING better than a cheese Screamer on

    Awesome trashy Seattle Mexican goodness. You will not be disappointed! Try the nalasco burrito if you're starving!

    Amazing margaritas. Sit in the bar, it is nice and feels more intimate. Taquitos are boss

    Get an Elvis Burrito & be sure to try their home made salsa. The green salsa is out of this world.

    Love, love, LOVE Mama's. You can never go wrong with their daily specials, but the arroz con pollo is a special treat.

    I know I can't get Tex-Mex just anywhere though I try. The enchiladas are a travesty, the salsa is bland, the burritos are fine, skip the piña coladas. Margaritas ok, nachos not bad.

    Bills itself as Seattle's oldest Mexican restaurant. Open since 1974, it knows how to change with the times. But Patrons still draw pictures and caricatures of Elvis on napkins. Happy hour 4-6:30 Read more

    I always regret going here. Nothing feels homemade. The burritos might be the best but still not worth it.

    Burritos are fine. I actually think the salad is a pretty good value.

    Great homemade salsa and chips, classic magarita on the rocks with salt and the Elvis Presley Burrito. Not sure a meal gets much better. Read more

    Don't even bother going in. I'm from Texas so I may be expecting too much from a Mexican joint in Seattle. But the salsa was weak and the food bland and smothered with cheese.

    Mary Salad is the winner if you are not in a burrito mood. Oh and Dos Equis on tap in the new bar is a great addition.
