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.

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.
