Gorditos is a family owned Mexican restaurant in the Greenwood area of Seattle. My husband and I have been going there for years because the food is cheap and so delicious! Amazing salsa...both warm and cold. HUGE burritos that you can easily share with another person. You bus your own tables, which helps keeps costs down and there is even a patio outside for occasional sunny days in Seattle!
Favorite Dish: My favorite dish is the chicken quesadilla. It's huge and I usually have to take half of it home. Nachos are also very good.
Cactus offers some great Mexican food in the heart of Seattle. This restaurant (and its other location in Kirkland) is very popular, so make a reservation or expect to wait in line for a while. The dishes here are large. You might want to order several of the tapas-style appetizers and share amongst your group. There is a great variety of dishes here. Not all are authentically Mexican, but they're all tasty. Cactus has a very upbeat, energetic atmosphere an a lively bar area.
Favorite Dish: The nachos here are great! The coconut shrimp dish, topped with a green chipotle sauce is also good. The fajitas are also a sure thing.
GUADALAJARA: Great Mexican food with hella big portions. Cheap prices
MAHARAJA: Cuisine of India, Good food, kinda pricey but worth it. 4525 California Ave S.W 206-935-9443
Favorite Dish: THE CRAB POT: It's all in the name,

The "Hangover Specials" on Sunday morning was a life saver and set Nic and I up for a busy day in Seattle. A lively bar in the evenings, a good meeting place.
Cheap good burritos in a really really small place that has many velvet paintings on the wall. Check it out.
