Great story. Great menu. Great service. Great food. I loved my first visit. No eye rolls with picky requests. Everything tasted home made. Seasonal veggies and chicken was cooked perfectly. I’ll be back for sure.

Awesome vege and vegan menu! The pinto beans are the best I’ve had, and they’re not gassy! Not sure how they make em but I love em. The salsa bar is a nice feature and the staff is great.

Great food, very generous portions, large menu (Mexican and American), $5 margarita's until 7pm, help yourself to salsa and chips. What's not to like. I've eaten here 3 times in the last 6 weeks and had a great meal every time.

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.
