While heading to this area for Quest Factor, we decided to arrive early with friends and grab lunch. Trip Advisor being the "go to" for mysterious areas in which to eat, we found this place! The reviewer who talked about the crispy tender pork wasn't kidding (I think it's David A. THANKS!). The tacos are taco truck-mazing. The carnitas flavor is seriously dreamy. The chicken was pretty good too. The whole menu looked drool-worthy, but I'll have to visit again to confirm. Many fish options, taquitos for kids or even dino nuggets for the littles who aren't adventuring beyond pressed poultry. There were also some yummy soups and platters on there. Need to go back!

Went in here looking for some good Mexican tacos . I wasn't disappointed! They are really good! Nothing special but good taste. You get ur condiments at the bar if you need any salsa or lemon wedges. Great place for some tacos

Don't come here expecting a chips-and-salsa-while-you-wait-to-order type Mexican restaurant. The tacos are made of two small corn tortillas and a couple of tablespoons of filling, with a little pico de gallo on top--taco truck tacos. Then you add salsas and a squeeze of lime from the salsa bar, along with jalapeños and other condiments. They are delicious, and three are perfect for a moderate eater. Everything is very good--I really don't understand the reviews calling the fillings bland--they're very flavorful, just not incendiary, you add that with the salsas. Super casual and inexpensive.

This is a small restaurant with huge flavor in their food. The service is quick and friendly. Highly recommend getting the street tacos.

Excellent food, authentic, uncommon menu choices are the order of the day at El Sabor. Order at the counter and then the food is brought to your table. The building is small and can get crowded but it's worth it. Our family had a variety of things, from the Chile Colorado Burrito to one of the Mexican soups on the menu. Best Mexican food I've had in Seattle!
