( – Downtown Bellingham, Washington

How I heard of this place: Growing up in the area, everyone knows about this Bellingham institution. Long-proclaimed the best burrito in the city, the likes of the potato burrito have reached national acclaim! After over five years of marriage, it was high time I introduced my husband to our college diet staple.

Type of cuisine: Casa’s known for our legendary potato burrito and vast tequila selection, but if those aren’t your favorites, don’t fret. We have fish tacos, not-yo taco nachos, super crunch veggie burritos and mayhem queso quesadillas …if you love Mexican food, you’ll love this place. Huge portions and super reasonable prices make Casa a favorite of local students, but the devoted patrons come in all types. If you’re not already a Casa Que Pasa lover, come get your fill and you will be soon!

Ambiance: A well-loved Bellingham landmark, Casa Que Pasa is one of downtown’s best bets.

The opposite of fancy and pretentious, our dive-fabulous, funky atmosphere is what we’re all about.

With rotating art by local artists, great tunes and a dimly lit Cantina in back,

it’s the perfect place to relax with friends for lunch and dinner. With awesome food & drinks of course!

What I ordered: A Father’s Day weekend outing for our (extended) family was the perfect excuse to venture out for lunch. The majority of us chose the upgraded Potato Burrito (which is just potatoes, beans and special sauce) and added the vegetables in the Rancho Deluxe ($9.29), a few of whom eliminated the sliced black olives.

For the children, one Cheese Quesadilla ($5.49),

one Chicken Quesadilla ($9.69),

and Fish Tacos ($9.89).

What I loved: Everything. It’s all good. We came for the Rancho, enjoyed every last bite, and sampled the quesadilla, equally good in its simplicity. Yum. And yummer.

Why I loved it: A Bellingham institution, it’s always worth the trip, and the over-indulgence. The new space, under new ownership (creating the original recipes!), with new artwork and an expanded menu has certainly retained the patronship and the integrity of this college town staple. Way to go!

Cost: Low to average ($5.49 – $14.99 per entree plate)
