“Chilada's brings Latin Cuisine to Orcas Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2011

Just back on the island and had a wonderful evening with friends at the newly opened Chilada's.

Bright colors and fresh carpet, inspired photography of Julie's time in Mexico...what a wonderful setting, inside & out in the courtyard.

Having Cy Fraser in the kitchen, offering his flavorful take on Latin Cuisine...some of our favorites and new, zesty offerings...makes having dinner at Chilada's a "must do" for all our guests enjoying summer on Orcas Island.

Nice that they are offering a Courtyard Happy Hour from 4-6PM each day. A perfect way to end the day, enjoying time with friends over a classic margarita and small bites.

Happy to have you back, Julie, Cy & Cait...and all the crew that are bringing Chilada's to life in the Summer of 2011.

“ABSOLUTELY AMAZING- A MUST!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2011

I am not one to be excited about resturants and have lived in Southern California all my life were there are many great mexican restaurants, but this place delivers some of the freshest, best mexican food I have ever had. We noticed when entering the resturants that people were thanking the staff for bringing back one of the great restaurants on Orcas. Away a good sign! First, there Margaritas are amazing, If you don't have one, you are missing out. They are made with fresh squeeze lime juice, and absolutely delicious. I had a pork enchilada with the chili rellano. It was one of those dishes that you wish you could have over and over again. My friends had the Carne Adobada and Salito and loved it and we ALL agree that this is hands down the best restaurants on the island, and a must do! Also, worth noting, there happy hour is ridiculous cheap as they have $3 beers and $5 Margaritas on an large outdoor patio serving fresh oysters local from the island that are some of the largest I have seen. Well done, can't wait to go back!

“Wonderful food, enchanting atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2011

My wife and I had dinner at Chilada's last night with friends and had a fantastic time. Everyone enjoyed their food immensely and we had quite different things. I love this restaurant and we will be eating there many more times before we head back to Washington D.C. - we're also planning on checking out the happy hour!

“Avoid.......lousy excuse for Mexican food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2011

We were excited to see that the former site of Bilbo's was re-opened as Chilada's. Four of us had dinner Saturday evening and none of the food was good. The pork tacos were tough and not very flavorful, the carne asada at $20. was not well spiced and it was super chewy. Very disappointing and very expensive for the quality of the food.
