Train Wreck

Reviewed By HeadingOut98229 - Bellingham, Washington

Visited twice in a couple of days because the food was so good the first time. Located right against the main line tracks, the decor is railroad kitsch; and when a train comes by, the building shakes. Fun. The Beef Brisket sandwich was melt in your mouth, smoky goodness, and the side of sauce not too sweet. A TW Burger with pepper jack and grilled onions very tasty. On the second visit, my partner was swooning over the fish tacos, which she said were the best since she'd been in Mexico, and my TW Burger with Swiss cheese and the usual fixings really hit the spot. We tried the Berry Crisp with ice cream, and it was tart and just plain good. It appears the beer selection is excellent, tho' we didn't partake this time. They have a good vegetarian menu too. The Train Wreck Bar & Grill may well become a regular place for us, and we'll look forward to trying other items on the menu.

Rachawadee Thai Cafe

Reviewed By PNW2010 - Seattle, Washington

I stopped in for a late lunch last week and had a wonderful Pad Kee Mao. Yum! Always busy counter restaurant and difficult to get a spot, but worth the try! Be brave and order something other than Pad Thai - they do great thai food cooked right in front of you!

Calico Cupboard Old Town Cafe & Bakery

We are a "made from scratch" cafe & bakery celebrating over 36 years in business.

Reviewed By WindhorseManor - Mount Vernon, Washington

This restaurant has amazing comfort food. They make everything onsite and we have never ordered anything there that we didn’t love. The sandwiches are very filling. The cinnamon rolls are huge and they have a number of different toppings to chose from. Many of the bakery items can be taken to go. They are very busy on the weekends. They do not take reservations, so when you get there, you put your name on the list and wait to be seated. You may have to wait a bit, but it’s worth it. There is outside seating when the weather is nice. We take visitors from out of town here and they always love it.

Olive Garden

Reviewed By ravenlady - Mount Vernon, Washington

Really enjoyed the personable Renee who served our meal. She helped me start with the tasting of three wines. The meal of grilled salmon I enjoyed and my husband liked the cheese ravioli.
Hadn't eaten at an Olive Garden in some time, so the menu had changed and we liked it.

Reviewed By Wklstoywife - Camano Island, Washington

I ate here years ago and not sure why I had not been back. Excellent value during happy hour. I was with my husband and we decided to stop here due to what I had read about happy hour. We sat by the fireplace since it was March and I am always cold. We ordered the happy hour flatbread (5.99), My husband ordered a lemon Martini (7.50) and I ordered the cosmo (5.50). I ordered the wrong flatbread so we had to order another one the meat one (5.99) and another drink of course a pomgranite granita (7.50) and my husband ordered the wine special (5.00). Total bill for 2 flatbreads and 4 drinks $40.67...now that's a deal! Check the website before you go for happy hour hours.

Habachi is a unique experience where you sit on a counter in front of a live cooking experience. The food will be prepared in front of you and served very hot and fresh. They do some entertainment for you as well. Food was great, entertainment fun and server's very professional.

Bob's Burgers & Brew

Seasonal hours may vary. We are open until 10 p.M, but we close at 9 p.M during the Winter.

Reviewed By DeanfromSeattle - Seattle, Washington

Okay, so I wouldn't have known of Bob's or stopped by except that a) they are next door to a Tesla Supercharger station and b) they are highly rated on Tripadvisor in Burlington.

Great burgers (not inexpensive, tho). My wife had a chicken avocado that had a pretty big slab of chicken which made it a little hard to bite into. I had something called a Squirrel, and if you like roast beef it's a winner. Both were three napkin dishes - pretty messy but tasty. She got a tomato soup. I had classic fries.

Service was good, and it took just the right amount of time to top off the batteries.

There are apparently several Bob's around the state so I'll try others now.

I will be back!

Taqueria Los Jarritos

Reviewed By DeborahE386 - Coupeville, Washington

Okay, I am stuck. I love their fish tacos and keep ordering them. I have heard many people walk in and tell their friends that everything is excellent. And I believe it. It is all fresh, prepared to order and delicious. Like I said, I just keep going back for more fish tacos. Friendly and efficient service too. All in all, a great experience.

Asian 1

Casual Dining.

Reviewed By brifd1 - Everett, Washington

In amongst a cluster of establishments of different types, this square-shaped restaurant would seem to have ample seating for this small community, but its promise of healthy food is attractive to young and old alike, and sometimes one has to wait.

Fortunately, this wasn’t the case for me my first time here, and it was 7:30 on a sunny Saturday night. I was greeted and seated fairly quickly, and given that I was in a hurry, I soon zeroed in on Honey Shrimp, something that I would shun at a typical Asian restaurant due to the (for lack of a better description) fatty taste. My food was delivered rather quickly, it was of good quantity, and it was tasty, like I was eating something healthy. I told my server that I was in a hurry and asked for a take-out box, but that apparently was a challenging task to ask, as I waited for much longer than I expected.

My favorite dessert is mango with (preferably) black sticky rice, and they have it here. I love this dessert so much that I was willing to take a chance that my server was up to this task better than getting the take-out box. I was mistaken. The good news was that the dessert was excellent, and I even shared it with my 89 y/o mother who was at a nearby assisted living facility and the reason for my rush (so as to get there before they locked the front doors). She said no, then decided to try it, and she loved it. This simple act made her day!

Curious Chef

Reviewed By HeadingOut98229 - Bellingham, Washington

Had heard rumors this was a nice little cafe with excellent breakfasts, but I was somewhat disappointed. The service was slow, probably because they were pretty busy, but my waitress seemed distracted or inexperienced. My Denver Omelette was good but nothing special, but I will say the hashbrowns were crispy and excellent.
