As Seattle restaurants continue to adjust to the COVID-19 pandemic and the state of Washington’s incremental reopening plans, taco spots remain a vital part of the food scene. The dish makes for a great grab-and-go item, and there are places now offering build-your-own kits for delivery as well (some are also offering dine-in service). Here are some of the best options across the city (and outlying areas). Since services and opening hours shift often these days, so call ahead to make sure each restaurant or food truck is still open — and if you see any changes, or if there’s a spot you’d like to see on the list, send us a tip.
