Yes, this is Washington, not California. But you still deserve to destroy a pile of authentic tacos and a cold Tecate in one breath. Tacos Chukis used to be “that secret taqueria in that building on Broadway with the tattoo parlor and hair salon,” but now the entire universe is in on it. And for good reason - fast, cheap, and messy, this place does you right every single time. Hop in for lunch or a pre-bar-hop dinner with the crew, wait in line and skulk around for a table, order a massive plate of the house tacos (seasoned grilled pork, guacamole, onion, cilantro, and a square of grilled pineapple) and carry on with your day knowing you’ve made one good decision.
