Saturday Steals Mexican Style – Rancho Bravo

If you’re of the cilantro-despising crowd, Rancho Bravo is right up your alley – just ask for it to be left off. Those of us green leaf lovers will think this Mexican fare is pretty darn good too – not to mention cheap.

Originally a one-stop taco truck in Wallingford, Rancho Bravo opened another, more permanent, home on Capitol Hill. Located just blocks from Seattle Central Community College, it’s frequently packed with students and working folks alike.

The atmosphere is loud, made increasingly so by the cafeteria like remnants of the former fast-food joint.

If you’re looking for just a nibble, the doraditos (mini hard shell tacos) come stuffed with your choice of meat and generously topped with lettuce and salsa. Burritos, both the dressed up Bravo and less expensive Rancho, are big enough for leftovers. The tortas, slightly less money than the burritos, are equally filling. But nothing on the menu is over $5.00, so cost is really negligible.

Bottom line – if you’re looking for a cheap, decent meal, Rancho Bravo has your name written all over it.
