Nice downtown Oakdale Mexican food

Suzie makes authentic northern Mexican style food and serves really big portions We like the chile rellenos and the enchiladas. The margueritas are good, too, and she has a happy hour when they are super cheap. Friendly service and a nice atnosphere. best Mexican food in town.

We always go here when we are in town. It's family owned and operated by 3 sisters. Friendly and the food is delicious.

Our family had lunch here on our way from Yosemite to San Francisco and we were very happy to have found this place on Trip Advisor. This is authentic Mexican food with great service and very reasonable prices. The food was fresh and delicious starting with the warm chips served with slightly spicy salsa. We had burritos, enchiladas, and soft... More

When I was a kid in the 1970s, Belen's was Romero's Mexican Restaurant. It was very good, and we ate there a lot. It is still very good. I'm so glad that at least one of my favorite restaurants in Oakdale is basically still there and kind of looks like it did with about the same kinds of food... The... More

The restaurant is called Suzey Belen's it has been a staple in Oakdale for many years. Our shelter group have our get together at let twice a year and me and my husband go on a regular basis. Love the food and the whole staff. It may not be the best food but you are treated like family.

Homemade food is delicious! Suzy is always there and greets you with a smile. You start off with the most flavorful chips (they clearly use a different type of oil or something cause the chips are light and really delicious) and salsa and bean dip. Now I'm not a refried beans person, but I just LOVE this dip. Dinner portions... More

My brother and I were looking for a good home-cooked meal at the end of nice (but very warm) weekend in Yosemite. We were delighted to find Suzey Belen's - just a block off the main highway. The service was friendly and quick. The food was homemade and delicious! I recommend the cheese enchiladas and the coffee!

We doin this restraunt on a back street as we strolled to find something rather than the fast food chains on F Street. It was very quiet, being a week day but the menu and service were excellent. The toilet was in excellent cleanliness to what we have experienced over the past 3 days. We shared chicken fajitas for 2... More
