About Us

Learn the tale of the Jackalope and how we came to be in Seattle’s Columbia City neighborhood!


A Mythical creature or a Living Legend?

The Elusive Jackalope

The tales of the fabled Jackalope are varied and ever changing. Passed down through local legend and oral history, this elusive mythical creature is one that has appeared throughout Western folklore and Middle Eastern cultures for nearly 200 years. Some say it’s a jackrabbit mixed with an antelope while others believe a deer is somewhere in the mix. Either way, we think it’s a cool beast.

Much like the mythical namesake hybrid creature – Jackalope Tex-Mex & Cantina aims to blend together the diverse flavors of Mexico with the bold personality of Texas to create something memorable – through both our food and hospitality. We do hope you’ll tell your friends about Jackalope and pass along a bit of local culinary history in the making.

“Don’t ever get into a whiskey drinking contest with a Jackalope – you’ll lose every time.”
