Anacortes Mexican restaurant dinner recommendation

Looks like there are a few Mexican restaurants in Anacortes (Fridas, Agave, Esteban's seem to get mentioned) ... which one would you recommend for dinner? Atmosphere is not as important as good food. Thanks.

  1. Hi, GG:

    Haven't been to Agave, but the other two are both good. IMO, Esteban's is plainer food and atmo, Frida's a little bit more upscale.

    On your way there, El Gitano is one of my faves. Locations in Burlington, Mt. Vernon, and La Conner, but the best is the Burlington location.


    1. Just don't stray into El Jinete !

      1. Agave is our favorite -- worth an occasional drive from Bellingham for lunch. We usually share a lunch special (which always seems to be a wet burrito, rice and beans) and a ceviche tostada, which has an immense pile of ceviche on it. Plain place and very reasonable prices.
