The chile relleno is the best thing they do here, and it's been consistent since I moved here nine years ago. The rest of the food, however, hasn't been as good on recent visits as it was when we first arrived. Not sure what changes occurred in the kitchen, but for instance on the combo plates the refried beans have been getting runnier (as if they're thinning out the beans to make them stretch further) and the rice plainer, seemingly less and less seasoned and from the tacos to the burritos, the food is just less interesting. I'll give this restaurant a lower rating tody than I would have after my first visit. That said, Mexican food in Bellingham is very bland and disappointing, and the excellent Taco Lobo rellenos are the one thing that hasn't changed. You CAN do worse.

I've tried a lot of Mexican restaurants but without a doubt my favorite is Taco Lobo. From the freshly-made tortillas, to the extensive salsa bar, everything is top-notch quality. Everything I've ordered has been wonderful. There is a good variety of dishes and the portions are large.

This is great for casual dining downtown, either for lunch or dinner. They have a variety of beers and margaritas if you are so inclined.. I especially enjoy the tamarind margarita.

The Chile Rellenos are A+, had two. The salsa bar is left mild so you have to kick it up a notch on your own. Loved the Pasole.

This restaurant has quite a local following in Bellingham. We do not understand the reason for that. The food is uninteresting, dirty dishes are cleared very slowly, prices are relatively high given the food quality, we would not return. The refried beans tasted as if they were out of a can, for example. Bellingham has numerous much better restaurants.
