“Best Mexican food in Bellingham!”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

I've been going to Lorenzo's for years....don't know why I didn't think to review them sooner. The food is top quality, you get tons of it for your money, the staff are super friendly, and the restaurant has a warm and welcoming vibe. They know me by name there, so it's like coming home whenever I go there! Only twice in over a decade of patronizing Lorenzo's have we had so-so service....once, they were so short staffed that Lorenzo himself had to cook. It's usually fast, but not rushed. They also make the best sangria ever, and they have Dos Equis Amber beer or tap for a great price. I recently tried another Mexican restaurant in Bellingham, just to see what it was like, and I can tell you I won't be going back. Lorenzo's is the only place for me! Muchas gracias, mi amigos!

“Great Mexican food.”

Delicious Mexican food with excellent service. Casual dining with a large menu selection. The pomegranate margaritas is a must.

“An excellent choice for "Mexican" on the Meridian drag.”
Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

Lorenzo's is a fine choice for a casual Mexican lunch or dinner. The food is pretty typical of Bellingham's Mexican style, but done quite well. The menu is HUGE, with choices to please everyone, well prepared and large portions. There are usually a few more creative daily specials. Prices are also typical for our area. The interior is very nicely decorated and inviting... and especially welcome for its air-conditioning on warm summer days. Service has always been good. The only (super minor) problem is trying to give directions to the location: they are located up a steep driveway, well above the street and kinda easy to miss. Just be sure to note that they are directly across Bakerview Rd from the Walgreen's and PETCO, just east of Meridian - and look up!

We just walked in, no reservation;Authentic place,amazing food,large selections, very well priced,quick service, friendly waitresses, ...family run business, clean restrooms,will recommend anytime.I wish we had one in Vancouver!

“Friendly service and lots of choices”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Travel weary and the first time to Bellingham with this being our first restaurant stop. We were warmly welcomed by happy staff and received great service. Very colourful and authentic Mexican decor. A basket of tortillas and fresh salsa are put on your table right away. We wanted vegetarian and there was a good selection to choose from on the menu. The vegetarian burrito was very good and homemade tasting. We will return again on our next trip.
