Whoa! A burst of fresh in a world of processed foods! Loved this place from the first time I went. The Pico de gayo (ugh, spelling) is amazing and so fresh. The rice and beans in the burritos are always the perfect combination. Service isn't always that great, but the food more than makes up for it in most cases.
I thought Taco Del Mar was ok until I went to Gorditos. Now when I go to Taco Del Mar, I feel like I asked for a Lexus from Santa and got a Geo instead. Yes, its cheap and so is Gorditos. Yes the food is good,but Gorditos is better in my opinion. The ambiance is ok and the service is very good. I only go to Taco Del Mar as a last resort. Acapulco Fresh is better and so is Gorditos.
While Seattle has just about the worst junk food i.e. burritoes and pizza in the country Taco del Mar has pretty good food. Definately better than Taco Bell but cant hold a candle to places in N.M. and Chicago. But not bad. Their burritos have a lot of ways to customize so try some different combos.
My fave Taco del Mar meal is the fish taco (the fish burrito is great but it's big enough to feed 2 or 3). Next fave is the mole pork. The braised chicken's good too. I guess I like 'em all.
I think Taco del Mar is the best of the fresh burrito chains. Qdoba is good, but Taco del Mar is cheaper and offers more variety. And TdM blows Chipotle out of the water. (Chipotle is owned by McDonalds and their burrito filling is mostly rice.)
