We loved this restaurant until the last few months. The chicken in the chicken Adobo is dry (this has happened twice) and the chicken looks like leftover pieces from something else. It looked bad and didn't taste much better. The sauces are not as good...More

Has been my favorite Mexican food in Bellingham for over a decade now! I have my staples, and they are always good. Salsa bar and unlimited chips make it extra enjoyable. Service is always VERY fast! It's one of just a few places I can...More

I hadn't eaten here in a long time, and I won't let that happen again! I really enjoyed my meal, the chips & salsa, the fast service, and the reasonable price. Homey atmosphere, comforting tastes, plenty of flavor.

When Taco Lobo first opened food flavor was bold, rich, and exquisite. Tortillas were hand made with a wooden press. Over the years, the high quality of ingredients seem to have been replaced by less flavorful alternatives, e.g. Standard cheddar substituted for savory Mexican cheese;...More

In Bellingham, if Mexican cuisine is your quest, well, your quest is at an end! Satiate your hankering for South-of-the-Border at Taco Lobo. It's not just the handmade tortillas - personally, I like beans (I know, TMI...): The refried beans are delicious and just like...More

Small authentically decorated with authentic mexican food. Had a pork pineapple burrito and chicken enchilado that were excellent. Free chips and a great salsa bar where you can really customize your topping. Not fancy, but real silverware and someone to clean the table after you...More

I've eaten here dozens of times and this is the spot I meet friends for lunch. It's reliable and delicious and not your usual Mex-American place. The sopas and the enchiladas are my favorite.

Enjoyed a couple of recent lunches here as an alternative to some of the "greasy spoon" alternatives in this part of downtown Bellingham. The restaurant seems to be a hybrid of a taco truck and a sit down restaurant as far as atmosphere goes. You...More
