Get in and Go (get fajitas!)
In the early 1930s, Mexican vaqueros in Southwest Texas began to develop a meal that combined grilled meat and tortillas. The meal would become a staple in the region. Throughout the years, additional ingredients were added — like pico de gallo, peppers, onions, guacamole, and spices — and the modern day fajita was born.
August 18 is National Fajita Day and we couldn’t let that pass without sharing a few fantastic fajita favorites in Seattle, Sacramento, and the Bay Area! Just grab a Gig and Go (get fajitas!).
Here are a few of our favorite fajita spots*:
Cactus on Alki Beach features an outdoor patio and views of the Olympics. The menu offers a variety of tapas and standards from Mexico and the Southwest, including sizzling fajitas!
El Legendario features fresh, authentic, and traditional Mexican food. Their signature dish - El Legendario - features shrimp fajitas, carne asada, and chicken. They also offer a fajitas plate with chicken or beef.
Fogón Cocina Mexicana is a vibrant family-owned cantina. Located in the heart of Capitol Hill, they offer a full, diverse menu (including fajitas, of course). We hear their chips and salsa are fantastic! Outdoor dining available.
