Yeah, I'm not usually a fan of the wrap style places but Chipotle is pretty good. Very good grilled meats and fresh ingredients (at least the one I used to go to). Didn't know they are in Washington. Which towns? Bellingham I hope since it's close.

Dona Cata on Victoria Dr. seems what you're looking for. Considering what there is in Vancouver for authentic Mexican, I take it to be one of the best places for it..

Went to Don Cata a month ago and it was great. I've never had authentic mexican food before, but I ordered the chicken mole and it was a really good dish. I also ordered a horchata (a cinnamon flavoured milk drink) which was great since it soothes your mouth from spicy food.

Yea was there a couple of weeks ago, it's pretty good. $10 for 4 tacos isn't exactly filling, but it's pretty tasty.

I believe its called PePe's its on the west side of Denman nearest cross street is Robson. They even have a live mexican band for certain days of the week. They have a pretty complete menu not just taco's and burritos
