Seattle Weekly's Description

The yellow-walled bar of this glitzy Fremont nightspot is bright and cheery, staffed by jokey, genial bartenders, with a pretty, romantic little patio attached. The margaritas (tart, hand-shaken, generous, and $5 during happy hour, with premium beers at $3) are worthy of their popularity, but service and food might not meet expectations. Best bets are grilled steak tacos or the salmon glazed with tamarind and served with sauteed greens. Try the abundant premium tequilas in a sampler (half a shot of three different tequilas).

    Best Margarita in town! Two will get you right to your happy place! Definitely try their Salmon Tamarindo - to die for!

    The Plantains are amazing! Comes with kickass guac and salsa. Also, if you enjoy steaks, the Capitolina Bistec is out of this world.

    Check out their back patio. It's a great place to enjoy a margarita during the warm summer months.

    Drink Happy Hour Margaritas with the Plantain Chips and Guacamole. YUM!

  • Will on 07/18/11

    Carne Asada tacos are the best in the city.
