We enjoy Susie Belen's in the heart of downtown Oakdale. What we found is that once it gets busy the service is not super prompt. Five pm or so. I've been there at 7 pm and service is slower. The food quality is very good. It's certainly not fancy but if you like Mexican food this may be the best... More

While clean and friendly, I would say the food is decent. There was nothing special about it. The margaritas were very good. Slow service but very nice. Maybe I wasn't totally in love with the enchiladas I got, or maybe I've just had better:) however, it's not a terribly bad place to eat!

Tucked away on a cute side street of Oakdale, you will enjoy lunch or dinner at "Suzie's" as the locals call it.

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.

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.
