“Excellent Food and Large Portions”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

The food is really authentic and the portions are more than sufficient to share! Most of the staff are Spanish speaking and soooooo friendly. Very good atmosphere and excellent tasting food. We will definately go back there again!!!

“A Find for Mexican Food in Bellingham!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

We happened by Lorenzo’s because it was across from Barnes and Noble. It is clean, bright and very colourful in decor. The choice on the menu is amazing, with all you’d expect for Mexican choices and some great variations. There is a section on the menu for vegetarians and a better selection of seafood items than you normally see at Mexican places. It actually takes a bit of time to read the whole menu.

The sangria was strong and flavourful; iced the tea was just right. Very nice fresh, light salsa with the taco chips. One of us had the crab and spinach enchilada, which was wonderful. It had real, fresh spinach in it, and lots of it, and real crab with a creamy white sauce. Not a greasy meal at all. The rice was light and fluffy. The other of us had a combo with a beef tamale and beef enchilada. Also very good, with nice spicing and very nice refritos. Cheesy and also not greasy. Portions were generous--I could not finish mine.

Service was quick (we were hungry!) and courteous. The waiter spoke a few words of Spanish (he clearly is a Spanish speaker), and was completely ready to speak to us in either that or English. Several of the patrons were Hispanic.

This will be a regular for us in Bellingham.

“Pretty good food and portions”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

I ordered a combo of beef taco and 2 beef enchiladas. Huge serving size for lunch with the beans and rice included. I had allergies and they were able to accommodate gluten free and dairy free. The salsa and chips came right away and were really tasty. The lemonade is pink. The service is friendly and as reasonably fast.

Nice decor with brightly coloured booths.
