This is a clean, nicely decorated restaurant with a very large complete menu and really delicious food. We wanted a Mexican beer with our lunch and they had a very nice assortment on tap. The service was good and they let me substitute pork into the chimichanga at no extra charge. It was served with large portions of rice, beans... More

It's a small place with lots of heart. Ask for Alfonso, he is the best. We felt right at home. We have had Mexican food from Puerto Vallarta to Kelowna BC. Prices and food were great. Prices were reasonable. Lots of food and great flavours. We had the pleasure of some entertainment from Alfonso's daughter Jennifer. She is a fantastic... More

This restaurant was a favorite of my Bellingham family so we gave it a try. Most dishes are above average and service is great. Due to our large party we had a sample of a number of dishes. Margaritas were strong in alcohol content, but not very tasty. If you're hungry, it will hit the spot.

The food was decent,, but it is kind of a fast food place turned into a sit down restaurant. Does not really feel like a traditional Mexican place.

We always have great service at the Sudden Valley location. The food is good and they usually have a coupon that makes it more affordable. Steak and shrimp fajitas are a favorite, burritos and chimichangas are also good. Jumbo margaritas..

We've eaten and taken out and always been pleased with the experience. I think they have the best pico de gallo in Bellingham and we usually get a container to go.

I visited this place on the way from Seattle to Vancouver more than 15 years ago. That time it was our wedding anniversary and we were so impressed that we decided when in Mercer Island visiting relatives and being again our anniversary to drive to Bellingham for lunch. It was really great and I can assure that next time I... More
