Seattle Weekly's Description

With its Spanglish name and Small World approach to Mexican cookery -- the menu spans nearly every Mexican region, so patrons can craft a meal of Oaxacan moles, Michoacan pork and Jaliscan shrimp saturated with cream -- Ballard's Senor Moose is likely to give purists pause. But if eaters are capable of stemming their snobbery, they're bound to find Mexican food as good as any so far from the border. The cozy dining room has limited seating, so most guests are forced to wait for a table, absorbing the aroma of freshly fried corn. Grab a margarita. Senor Moose makes terrific tortillas, corn chips and a deconstructed elotes that's a wonderful start to any meal. Entrees are equally good, especially when paired with a house margarita.

    Best hangover food in Seattle. Expect long lines. The maduros with cream are delicious. Make sure you go home afterwards to take a nap and change clothes. The kitchen is an outside one so you'll bring home the best take-out: the delightful aromas of their food!

    They have got to get a better photo! This doesn't do the dish justice!

    I went there for brunch - their breakfast items are great! I've also been there for appetizers and their salsa platter is awesome too!

    One of the best Mexican restaurants in town- absolutely worth the wait

    Try the guacamole at Voracious Tasting and Food Awards on April 27 at The Paramount Theatre.

    Order the ridiculously-good guacamole. Don't worry- "market price" is about the same price as the other appetizers (~$8 when I visited).
