      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

taco bell

Recommended Posts

Y'all need to pry yourself away from any Mexican Restaurant that serves those big Gatorade style margaritas (Azteca) and go to one of many authentic places in this area. Agua Verde is for yuppies and is anything but authentic (tasty but pricy though).

Go down to White Center and try Taqueria La Fondita #2 for starters and try some good and greasy carnitas tacos. If you want to sit down go down the street to the Del Rio market where its as authentic as it gets. You can also stock up on tacky ceramic Tweety birds and other silly things people are compelled to buy when they go to Tijuana.

Ah Taco Bell. In high school we would make the rounds from my house in Oakland near the Univ. of Pittsburgh to the Cricket Lounge (neigborhood strip club) to the Taco Bell after we got kicked out of the Cricket.

 

They got pretty pissed when they stopped serving us at 2 am because we didn't have a car for the drive through and then we started beating on the car windows of their other customers. Its all about the soft taco/mexican pizza combo.

not that gordito's (in greenwood) is *that* great, but if you like HUGE burritos and have never been, give it a visit. i think one burrito lasted me four meals! it's also not a full-service restaurant so you don't need your platinum card to eat there. thumbs_up.gif

 

Not that good? Are you on crack? Gorditos rocks. I hear that taco truck on Rainier is really good. Seriously.

There's really not any good Mexican restaurants in the PNW. frown.gif

 

huh? Avoid the Aztecas and try some of the smaller taquerias (sp?).

Well, folks, let's start seeing some names and addresses.

 

The closest place to me is Agua Verde at UW. Not bad.

 

Mama's in Belltown es bueno thumbs_up.gif

 

Tacos Guaymas ain't too bad either.

How about that little mexican hole, er place in Yucca, near Joshua tree? Bullet holes in the windows, Bible literature on the tables, 2 great tacos, a can of pop and a plate of black beans for $2.50. I think the three of us ate dinner for $8.00 while the cook unknowingly serenaded us from the kitchen. Had a jelly doughnut from next door for desert.

Gorditos is filling, but rather bland.

 

Not if you get the Grande Burrito (enough for 2 people for 2 meals) fajita style with tofu. Delicious!!!! And they will make it as spicey as you want it!!!

 

I am going to Texas for the Eric Clapton Crossroads Guitar Fest next week. Looking forward to some REAL Tex-Mex!

Hey all you Gringos!!!! There are a lot of good Mexican restaraunts up here. But no excellent ones. If you want an excellent mexican restaraunt there is a Taco Truck on the corner of Olvera street in East LA that has the best Mexican food in the US and they've been there longer than I have been alive (28 years). As for Mexican food in the southwest I think Brad CA nailed it, it exist's only in the Southwest. Born and raised in Phoenix, AZ. God bless Mexico!!! Wait Arizona isn't part of Mexico any more, oh well. Oh, and one of you Gringos misspelled my fovorite drink on earth... It is not horchada it is Orchata, like Chata the hell up! Andale Andale Ariba Ariba!!! Carfool haut plate seenor.

Another great taco bus is on Renton Ave S and 76th in Skyway.

 

I bet all you yuppies up in Freelard don't even know where Skyway is!

Having spent a lot of time in St. Johns (North Portland) lately, I've been impressed by the three burrito joints. Things get a quarter cheaper with each step further from downtown St. Johns. The $3.00 carne asada burrito from Super Burrito Express (next door to the carneceria, across from the public health building) is pretty good. Not quite on par with some of the stuff I grew up with in San Diego, I think it's due to the lack of access to that stringy lean brush fed beef out of northern Baja, it does hit the spot. Portland seems to be liberally sprinkled with equivalent emporiums too, a greater concentration than Seattle.

speaking of born in AZ...I'm even more authentic than you are Phoenix boy...good old Casa Grande...ever go to Ochoas? La Comida es muy bueno alla! If you're in Seattle, try Beso Del Sol...and if you go up on the Sammamish Plateau (Issaquah), try La Casita. The VERY best! Me gusta la Sangria! rockband.gif
