    The dips we ordered were very good, the chips were not the best I have had. No one at my table loved their main dishes, but they were o.k. Our waitress was great and the margaritas were wonderful!

    We come from an area if the country where Mexican food is king. We were most disappointed in the food. The guacamole didn’t taste like guac at all. The chicken enchiladas my wife ordered were extremely spicy yet nothing on the menu mentioned that. The tacos were just so-so. Overall a great letdown as we were hoping for some delicious Mexican food. We didn’t get any.

    New to the area, a friend suggested this place. Food is ‘okay’, drinks were great, but very small. Service is top tier. Will definitely come back to try something else in hopes for a better food experience, will absolutely come back for the staff! Great service no so common anymore.

    Very overpriced. It was like $150 for a family of 4. Maybe 3 drinks total. Had to explicitly ask for chips and when empty we asked and kept asking and kept being forgotten. By the time we got them we had finished the meal. At a Mexican restaurant with these prices and $15 guac the chips should be flowing along with free salsa. I actually sought out an extra drink but she forgot twice. In general the service wasn’t great. The food was very good but they need to rethink their price or service. Parking was non-existent too.

    It was an okay experience. Our server was nice and we were seated on time. Our drinks were good but our glasses were full of ice and very little margarita. Only had one since it was gone in a couple of sips. The food was okay - not fabulous but okay. Felt rushed to get out of there but they were nice. Probably will not eat here again.

    Food was the best Mexican we have had. Our waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu and recommended the best. Carne asada was amazing and my wife ate on her nachos for two days. Portion size is amazing and enough for a second meal! Flavors are outta this world. For sure, a regular go to place. Can’t wait till our next visit!

    This is about our 6th time here. This is the first time I ordered the same thing as last time (fish tacos) because I wanted to try the fried, versus the grilled. I like the fried better, but both were really good.

    Service was great. Very friendly, personable, and the right amount of attentiveness. Food was meh. Guacamole was bland. Spicy margarita wasn’t spicy. Chips and cheese kids meal … cheese wasn’t melty so couldn’t really dip chips. Enchilada rojo mole sauce was very bitter - maybe it’s supposed to be bitter? My wife liked her trio of tacos.

    Love the environment and the service was excellent. We bought primarily from the happy hour menu and we’re still a little shocked by the price at the end. Seemed pretty expensive for the small dishes we got, although the food and margaritas were really good.

    Have visited Poquitos on Capitol Hill a few years ago. Menu in both restaurants has been pared back based on staffing so the choices of speciality Mexican food has been reduced (miss the birria). That said, the tacos are great as are the other traditional offerings. Try the barbacoa tacos.

    we were there early (5:45) on a weekday, but unfortunately there were zero parking spaces available in the garage, and none on the surrounding streets...when we called for suggestions, we got a recording that sent us to park in a construction zone 4 blocks away (this is in cold, dark, rainy Bothell)...i tripped and fell in the dirt/gravel, spraining my ankle...nonetheless we continued to the restaurant, where the food was so-so (the fish tacos were especially dry and bland)...on a clear summer night, it might be a nice walk, but not on a dark wet winter night...in an unsafe parking area...

    You must pay for chips and salsa, and of course there's never enough salsa. Chips were good though! Salsa a bit bland. I had the Enchiladas Roja. The sauce was excellent with a nice chile flavor that I appreciated, rice and beans were ok (I thought under spiced, my wife thought over spiced, so it must have been just right lol). Portion was good. But the chicken in the enchilada was not marinated or spiced significantly and that ruined the overall flavor for me. The flavor didn't make it into the meat. A chicken enchilada is only as good as the chicken that's in it. As for drink, I had the La Fiona Margarita with habanero infused tequila, passion fruit puree and agave. It was very spicy and totally awesome! Decor was very well done. I just wish my food had been tastier. As it stands I probably won't go back except maybe for drinks :-)
