“Most authentic Mexican food in Bellingham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is the most authentic Mexican food restaurant in Bellingham. The menu is extensive, the beer selection impressive, and the salsa bar an added bonus. We have eaten here at least a dozen times and leave satisfied, if not overfed. The quality is excellent if you want authentic Mexican, not so impressive if you are after Americanized TexMex menus. The tables are clean and well lighted, the service staff efficient, and the order/cashier always very competent. You can't go wrong here.

“Have the Chili Rellenos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

The Rellenos are one of my favorite dishes of any restaurant in Bellingham. The cheese stuffed pepper has a perfect eggy breading and is floating in a bowl of thin tomato broth. Awesome!

“I Love This Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Order at the counter from the extensive menu, fill up from the awesome salsa bar, take a seat and wait for your order. I especially love the lunch combos available until 4pm which offer a great value.

My favorite: the al pastor burrito with beans and rice. If you order more than $6 you receive free chips. Staff are friendly and food arrives quickly.

“Consistently Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

After living in Squamish, BC for over two years- where the number of good Mexican restaurants can be counted on a closed fist- Taco Lobo has proved to be a miracle of sorts. The burritos are excellent, the chicken mole is absurdly good and the salsa is downright addictive. The service has been consistently knowledgeable and friendly, and the restaurant itself is a comfortable place to hang for a while.

“Fresh Mexican food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

This little place doesn't look like it would turn out fresh, wonderful Mexican food but it is a favorite of many. Great burritos for the price. They usually offer a daily special in addition to their extensive menu, a la carte or dinners.
