There are plenty of trucks and fast-casual spots in the neighborhood to grab some Mexican food quickly before sprinting back to your computer if you work in South Lake Union. But maybe you have some time to kill because you emailed some people saying you’d “circle back” with them soon (which means next week). Hang out at El Grito for fish tacos, enchiladas, and tasty homemade chips with salsa. If you partake in a frozen margarita (get the prickly pear), we won’t tell whoever you had to circle back with.

There’s a lot of good Mexican in Seattle, but Mezcaleria Oaxaca in Capitol Hill also has an excellent rooftop.
Gracia is a cute, but pricier Mexican spot you should hit up during happy hour. The $4 tacos are very much worth the early dinner.
