Your typical next door Mexican food joint! Chicken Fajita is absolutely my favorite and is delicious. Can't go wrong with Carne Asada too. Ample seating space but parking can be a problem considering it's right next to USPS and other busy places.Reducing a point just because of overly garish and bright LED lights everywhere and super loud music in the evening (or may be I went there at the wrong time?). I would love if they just stuck to traditional Mexican ambience that you see in such family run restaurants.Having said that, the interior is clean and in these insane covid-19 times, it's very important. The waitresses wear mask and gloves and wipe the tables clean ever so often. There's sanitizer on each table if you decide to dine in.Great little place with great food!

the carne asada looked and tasted like it was boiled. one big ass piece with the nasty unchewable shyt still on it. 3 stars cuz the rest wasn't disgusting but i won't be coming back

I ordered the menudo. It wasn’t terrible, but very bland and watery. There were no hominy beans (maíz) if you’re expecting that. It did come hot, included some fresh and hot corn tortillas. They provided cilantro, onions, and lime. A great set-up.It was just disappointing once I got into the menudo. It was as if they were running low and poured hot water in what remained.I love menudo. Maybe today just wasn’t the day. I’ll try again another time.

I love this place! My friend and I come here all the time, well before Covid that is. The marinated carrots are amazing and the workers are so friendly! This is one of my favorite spots with the best memories in Renton!

Same delicious carnitas burrito and green salsa as before! Sad when el burrito loco didn't pull up on yelp to call in an order, but we drove by and sure enough- same location, sign is still up, it Jaguar is the new name I guess. Amazing burritos, quick service, and clean!

I was parked near the restaurant and working inside the car for a while. Realized that I drained my battery and car won't start. Asked a couple of peoples to help but no one was willing. Finally I decided to try inside the restaurant and asked. The sheff came out to help without any question. This shows what kind of people they are. Ended up ordering food and loved it. Great food and great personality . Love them??

This place gets 5 stars simply for not sucking at making Mexican food and.... drum roll... offering California burritos on the menu. For the uninformed, this is just a normal burrito, with french fries added inside. Yes, I know you're thinking 'how good can that be, sounds weird and not that special.' Friends, get ready for the specialness of wondrous magnitude. Lots of taco places in SoCal have this as a standard, but hardly any taquerias in Seattle offer this. Just try it, you'll love it.

Transported to Mexico after one delicious bite of carnitas. Definitely returning!!

Popped in for quick lunch while running errands. Counter lady was pleasant and my lunch came out quickly, but, given the number of nearby Mexican restaurants, I'm not sure why they put some shredded iceberg and diced tomatoes (complete with the chopped up stems) on my plate. It was sad. Maybe a roasted jalapeño? A slice of avocado or lime? Pickled veggies on table? Something. Can't figure out why Jaguar and too frequently other Mexican restaurants think barely passable is good enough. Lunch was fine but standard fare.

We love this little hole in the wall- our favorite inexpensive spot for sopes and other more traditional Mexican fare. We were disappointed when our toddler wanted their chicken nuggets, but were pleasantly surprised- McD's has some unexpected competition . It works out that this hidden gem is near our favorite coffee shop (Boon Boona)! Go for the food & drinks, stay for the cheery & relaxed atmosphere.

Nice people. The place is very basic. Menu was as expected. I was disappointed due to high ratings. We struggled to find parking. Not their fault. City is winding maze of one way streets and confusion. Service was outstanding. My dish was a burrito. Meat was burnt in some areas and chewy in others. Love charred meat but this had strange flavor. Guacamole was or seemed like store bought. The pico de guillo which is my favorite was made of Cole slaw type mix with hard to find tomatoes. Not much to it. Hubby had a seafood stir fry which was presented very nicely. He says it was okay. So in my humble opinion it is just okay food. I hope they do well as they are so nice and obviously work hard sustaining a business. I just don't get the 5 star rating.
