We visited around 8pm Sunday night wanting Mexican but not expecting much. The food was fantastic. We were greeted very fast and seated. Immediately menus and warm chips/salsa arrived. There were about 8 other tables there when we arrived and a steady stream of Mexican diners arriving. This bodes well we thought. Ordered chicken fajitas for two and were extremely... More

We arrived and waited for 10 minutes before salsa and chips were brought. No water or drinks even asked about. Waited another 15 minutes and after signaling a woman behind the counter, someone came over to see what we needed. We ordered food and drink all together to save time. Another 30 minutes later our food arrived. Not bad food... More

Had dinner last night with family and got to sit in the new addition. It's great that they have more seats now, but they're struggling with keeping up with the demand. Food is still good, we had the Enchiladas de Crema and others had Pollo de Crema; good flavor,lots of sauce, and plenty of chips with salsa. Margaritas weren't that... More

Always love going to Marta's, lots of chips and refills galore! We get the enchiladas with cream sauce and have never been disappointed. Good food, reasonable prices, overall good for us!

Marta's is a popular restaurant for Mexican food in Lynden. It is pretty much your average Mexican restaurant but the staff, including Marta, are welcoming and accommodating. A wide variety on the menu so there is usually something for everyone.

Had dinner with the family, and was very happy with the quality of food. The fajitas were some of the best I've ever had. The salsa and chips were great, and my kids loved their food also.

If you haven't tried it, do. This family makes great food that I've had both at the restaurant and via a catered event. Both experiences were fantastic, and of course I'd do it again. When they catered a staff event they brought more food than we ordered, just to bless us and allowing people to try a something unique. They... More

Mole' is amazing ... old family recipe. Food has never disappointed me. You feel like you are a guest at the house more than a restaurant. Eaten here 10+ times
