Best Mexican Cuisine in the Northwest

At Frida's there is such a choice of dishes not normally seen outside of Mexico. The poblano peppers are wonderful. The mole served has just the right blend of sweet, spice and heat. In general, I can take or leave Mexican food. Two enchiladas and a bunch of rice, beans and cheese leaves me... read more

Finally went to try this little gem in Anacortes, WA after friends suggested we try this place for Mexican Cuisine and Tequila. Certainly glad we stopped in, the menu is not a typical Tex-Mex, Cali type but more Yucatan cuisine and choices, means fun tasty options not normally found! The beef dish and the pork dish we had was superb,... More

We have enjoyed our meals at Frida's and have also had drinks in the back bar in the summer. Friendly staff, excellent food, a bit pricey but worth it.

Didn't really know what to expect from Gourmet Mexican food. Know I know and I like it. These guys had flavors that I have never tasted before. They had me with the first bite of Cole slaw... Really. I know cole slaw... the whole dinner rocked. give them a try..

We visit Anacortes regularly and wanted a change of pace from our fave restaurants. The decor is ... umm ... spooky? dark? We like our menu choices, as always limited because we're vegetarians. The server was a middle-aged man who perhaps was a supervisor called in to cover a shift? Dunno because there was no eye contact, no smiles, and... More

I had beef enchiladas, but in reality they were very ordinary. Nothing special in the taste either. The margarita was so so, but I would not order another one myself. I must sat that the couple sitting next to me were very happy with their meal, and said they would be back. So maybe my experience was not the same... More

The menu here is unlike any Mexican restaurant I've dined in outside of Mexico. We honeymooned in Quintana Roo, Mexico, last year and ate at an amazing restaurant in an old Colonial Hotel in the square of the small Colonial city of Valladolid. That was the best Mexican food I'd ever eaten. This matched it! I enjoyed poblana peppers stuffed... More

I'm generally not a fan of Mexican foods but my husband loves them so we decided to check this place out. Pleasently surprised! The menu is amazing and the food was delicious for us both! Very prompt and courteous service. Will definitely be coming back.

Nice people, nice atmosphere,not sure that I like this type of Mexican food. Highish prices, not sure it's worth it.
