“One of the better Mexican options reasonably close to the border.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Across the street from Bellis Fair Mall, it is a great option if you are looking for Mexican food.

It is reasonable in price, tasty Mexican food. Has all the favorites, we love the carne asada but their enchiladas and tacos el pastor are also very good.

They have a starter chips and salsa for free.

“Just right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Not Tacos on the Street in La Cruz and not a Chevy's (in anywhere USA). Staff is great, the decor is a tourist version of what a restaurant in Mexico might be like ... but ...

The food is great!

Bellingham is about 40 miles from Canada ... not likely you are going to find good Mexican food here. I think the crowd was only 25% gringo ... everyone else was Mexican. If everything else is as good as the enchiladas I had you won't be disappointed. What a wonderful surprise.

If you like Tex-Mex/Mexican food and don't want to drive to New Mexico or Arizona ... put Bellingham on your short list.

“Great Mexican Fair”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Wow what a great family restaurant. This is the first place we stop at when we cross over the border into Washington state. The refried beans and rice are always well prepared and the portions are quite substantial. Families with young children are always welcome. The service is tremendous and we love the atmosphere. The Seafood enchiladas are stuffed with seafood and the Caldo de pollo is excellent. You probably will not have room for dessert.

“Superb Mexican Food at a Reasonable Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

This is an unpretentious Mexican restaurant in the heart of Bellingham where the service is always enthusiastic and friendly, the food excellent, plentiful and economical. I have dined here many times over the years and can honestly say I have never had a poor meal or service.

A real gem!

“Our standby restaurant for US shopping trips!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

We end up in this restaurant almost every shopping trip! Food is delicious, menus is varied and has something for everyone! We often get a late lunch, eat half and have the rest for dinner later. I would highly recommend it. Don't be afraid to venture off the norm on this menu. Everything we have tried has been a 'winner'!
