2. El Camion Adentro 6416 15th Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98107 (Ballard)

This location is the brick & mortar spot of the popular taco trucks, serving up breakfast burritos (all day!), gorditas, tamales, and some of the best and most authentic tacos in the city. Be sure to load 'em up with one of the fresh options at their salsa bar. Another solid pick is their classic torta, filled with a meat of your choosing, plus plenty of flavorful accompaniments, including avocado, tomato, jalapeño, and pico de gallo.

3. Señor Moose Café 5242 Leary Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98107 (Ballard)

Infamous for its killer breakfast tacos, Señor Moose is definitely the spot to hit for a Sunday wake up call. Titillating taco offerings include the Tacos de Camote (sweet potato, panela cheese, spinach, black beans, pepitas) and Tacos de Machacha (shredded beef with salsa, onion, cilantro, avocado).

4. Tacos Chukis 219 Broadway E, Seattle, WA 98102 (Capitol Hill)

Though Taco Chukis baby burritos might be mini-er than the rest of the burritos on this list, it doesn’t mean they’re any less tasty. This Capitol Hill treasure is cheap and super central-- right off Broadway. It's a no-frills spot offering delicious Mexican street food fare at an affordable price. You can’t go wrong at this place-- and its prices, you can go ahead and try one of everything!

This Salvadorean spot in Greenwood purveys tasty eats in both the pupusa and taco persuasion. Take your pick of beef, chicken, or pork - all tacos come with chopped onions, cilantro, and a mild salsa verde. You can wash it all down with a Jarritos or horchata.

6. El Quetzal 3209 Beacon Ave S, Seattle, WA 98144 (Beacon Hill)

This Tex-Mexy spot in Beacon Hill fits the bill perfectly for a classic Corona and carnitas sit down, so if you’re ever feeling a little vibed out on Seattle, make pretend you’re smack dab in Austin and squirt those limes gratuitously.
