Calle - Tacos & Tequila

To say that Skagit County is lacking in restaurant options is an understatement. So, when I heard the buzz about a new Mexican restaurant in downtown Mount Vernon that wasn't like the other Mexican cuisine in the valley I was excited to check it out.  The buzz was right, the atmosphere here is not like your typical Mexican restaurants.  No sombreros, Mariachi band or chips and salsa on the table.

Meaning "street" in Spanish, Calle offers traditional Mexican cuisine, including small taco truck style tacos on homemade tortillas.  The bar boasts over 60 tequilas.  They offer tequila flights ranging from $15 to $40 for 3 tastes.  I seriously had the best margarita here.  There is not a blender in sight, all their margaritas are on the rocks.  I had their cucumber margarita, made with fresh lime, cucumber infused tequila and agave syrup.  It was excellent.  They also have some spicy margarita concoctions like mango habanero.

With great service, excellent drinks and good authentic food; Calle should stick around for a long time. They are active on their Facebook page, posting updates and specials regularly.  Please support local and check them out!
