Had a wonderful dinner with my large group of friends - they accommodated us without issue and also got our entire order correct! Delicious food with a spicy Latin twist. Self serve chips and salsa bar was fun and unique also! Happy hour menu and signature margarita- yummy! Definitely a great place and will come again!

I really enjoy this restaurant. The owner is very friendly and the staff is nice. I've been there a few times and the food is always delicious. I especially appreciate their salsa and salad bar. They also have a good selection of drinks. I am always happy and satisfied with my visits. I will definitely be returning. Thank you.

The food was fabulous and the prices were reasonable. My group included a vegetarian who said the vegetarian/vegan menu was one of the most extensive in town. The serving sizes were immense, and the staff will bring to-go containers without being asked. There is both a salad bar and a chips and salsa bar that are complimentary. We were served by the owner, who was friendly, courteous, and patient with all our questions. I seldom leave reviews, but this place rocks -- try it!

My name is Maria Isabel Guzman, owner of Equal Latin, and I would like to share my story. 

In the year 2000, I arrived in the U.S. as a sixteen-year-old with no family and no knowledge of the English language. My first job position was as a dishwasher in a small restaurant. As I slowly learned English, I quickly moved through the ranks- first as a prep cook and eventually as a waitress and a cook. 

When I arrived in Washington, I began working at a restaurant where I went from waitress to manager and stayed for 13 years. Along the way, my family grew and I met people that noticed and appreciated my work ethic. 

Together, with my family, friends, and community, the idea of Equal Latin was born. A place that celebrates the diversity of Olympia and humans everywhere. Our menu represents a delicious mix of food from our many cultures. 

After many years of dedicated hard work and a strong support system, I have realized my dream. A restaurant that welcomes all.
