I personally have always found that a restaurant’s Happy Hour is the best way for a customer to sit down and really get a chance to see what a restaurant has to offer. I mean come on, good food and drinks at affordable prices so you can actually afford to order everything on the menu, why wouldn’t you take advantage of happy hour?! For you, we at Seattle Southside gathered a list of the top 10 best restaurants to visit during happy hour. Hopefully this helps you narrow down your restaurant search at the times you’re starving.

We’re pretty confident in saying that Moctezuma’s Mexican Restaurant & Tequila Bar offers such a great selection of authentic Mexican cuisine that one could not possibly be disappointed.
