Seattle Weekly's Description

Some are quick to brand Greenwood's El Chupacabra, with its punk-meets-Day of the Dead decor, a "Bimbo's of the north." But like the mythical "goat sucker" that is its namesake, El Chupacabra is its own animal. The restaurant serves up its Mission-style burritos fat. Slathering them up with the red pineapple salsa will triple the spice that rests deep inside the burritos' smoky layers of cheese, sour cream, rice, refried beans, and avocado. Wash it all down with a Lagunitas or one of the bar's pint-sized margaritas.

    The only mexican food place I've found that actually carries FAKE MEAT! Fake meat tacos are the best thing in the world. And they have a kick-ass burrito too. That combined with the amazing dio de los muertos art all over the place make this my favorite mexican restaraunt in all of Seattle. Oh, yeah, and the margaritas. You can't forget the margaritas.... mmmmm....

    Patio margaritas, best way to spend a sunny day!

    Order the vegetarian burrito covered in red sauce - yummy!

  • Chris B. on 08/16/11

    Holy Smokes! The vegan burrito with the fake-steak and the vegan cheese is the best thing of all the things.

  • Sam S. on 09/02/10

    Chipotle pineapple sauce, DELICIOUS!!!

  • Jon on 09/02/12

    The waitress with the big cans, clown makeup and bad attitude is so slooooooow. If you get seated in her section be prepared to get your own water, chips and beer.
