Plaza Garibaldi is where to go if you want to eat Mexican food and drink like it’s Saturday. You’ll find frozen margaritas in comically large goblets with cactus-shaped stems, taco shells that come in Seahawks colors, and shredded yellow cheddar on pretty much everything. This place is a lot of fun, and sometimes that’s just what you need on a weekday. Bring a group, order a combo plate full of chimichangas or verde enchiladas or pollo asado, and pretend you don’t have to get up early tomorrow.
