The first 'Chup' pened in March 16th 2005 at the Phinney Ridge location with just barely enough money scraped up and calling in favors from the owners friends and family. The old juke box was filled with their favorite punk rock and heavy metal tunes. The menu was simple and all written on a chalk board by the kitchen. Burritos and Tacos, four meat choices and tons of fresh homemade salsa, rice, beans and all the fixins. With no advertising and a simple menu the two just figured they sell a few burritos to their friends and get a few people in for the good beer and cocktails. Seattle was hungry for good, fresh, homemade Mexican food liked the relaxed atmosphere, great prices, and the people keep coming hungry for more. In 2011 we opened a second location on Alki Beach. We also have a location on SLU opened 2015!

This place is great they have good food every time I've eaten their and make an excellent margarita. They also have a outdoor seating area for good weather. They are right across the street from Alki Beach. GooglePlace - February 2018

Awesome little spot on Alki beach. Delicious food, got pretty crowded on Saturday night. Bit too small for a big crowd, but overall fun resturant. Loved the chupacabras on the walls. GooglePlace - January 2018

Good chips and salsa! No fajitas and pretty small / very basic menu. I prefer more variety so will try someplace else next time. Dishes tasted ok though. Nothing super special. Restaurant had super strange chemical smell that was almost too overwhelming to stay. GooglePlace - January 2018

Excellent food, good amount for the price. Husband had a burrito "Better than Cactus" I had pazole, it was heavenly. Don't let the terrible parking at Alki stop you, take Uber if you have too, just get here. GooglePlace - January 2018
