Buy a shirt to help us!

El Chupacabra Ringer

Hi everyone! help support El Chupacabra by buying an awesome T-shirt from the link. They’ll be sent directly to you and half of the proceeds for each shirt goes back to the business (the other half goes to the printer who is also a small Seattle business, Porkchop Screenprinting Seattle it’s a good thing all around!).

With so many of us struggling right now it’s a great time to stock up on merch from bands and venues that you love as well. It’s been a bit of light in a dark time seeing the creative ways that we are supporting each other ❤️

Top Mexican Bar and Restaurant in Seattle shout out from vacationidea.com


El Chupacabra – Mexican Bar and Restaurant in Seattle

Ranked as one of the top locations for Mexican food in the city of Seattle, El Chupacabra is named after the legendary creature of the same name and offers family-friendly, casual dining with a laid-back attitude and a lively vibe in both of its Seattle locations.

Blending the charm and flair of a Mexican cantina with the rebellious attitude of a punk rock bar, El Chupacabra is the perfect place to enjoy great music, amazing drinks, and delicious food. If you love Mexican flavors, spices, margaritas, and more, you’ll find plenty to enjoy here.

The homemade hot sauces and terrific tacos stand out as some of the top options on the menu, with fruity cocktails and fun Happy Hours every single day adding a lot of life and vibrancy to these locations, giving them a unique ambience and atmosphere unlike anywhere else in all of Seattle.

The first El Chupacabra opened up back in 2005 and the citizens of Seattle have been in love with this mini Mexican chain ever since. If you’re looking for good times, friendly staff, flavorful meals, and lots of life and noise all around you, El Chupacabra is most definitely the best place to be.

Cinco De Drinko

Cinco De Drinko at Chupacabra May 5th 2019! It’s on a Sunday this year so you have all weekend to drink Tequila, eat tacos, and enjoy our patios at both Greenwood and Alki Beach.

DJ Fred Eddison will be spinning records 8 pm to 10 pm in the upstairs of Chupacabra Alki.


We made the list! Thanks Fitt!

“El Chupacabra has one of the most customizable Mexican menus around (with two locations in Seattle), so you can pretty much make anything work for you. Each table boasts a bevy of salsa for the spicy-lover and the more mild eater. Order a quesadilla with mock steak (seriously) and vegan cheese — trust us, it’s as good as the real stuff. El Chupacabra’s not only got a different take on food, meaning “little devil”, you’ll eat alongside strange little Mexican statues of devils and jam to loud rock music.”
