I love the fish tacos. I always get at least one. I had a chicken enchilada and a fish taco and rice and beans. So good. It was a cold chilly night and this really hit the spot. The staff is friendly and helpful. They have a new menu but I found just what I wanted.

Most of the food on the menu is very good. The tamales are great. The fish tacos are superb! Dripping messy and delicious! Cozy location in the downtown area. Great service, huge menu, pretty good prices. But, the fish tacos...heavenly!

I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but frankly the tacos are horrible. My family was not impressed with the food to say the least.

Better than the average Mexican restaurant a long way from Mexico. Food was good. Value was good. Service was OK. Worth a try.

Went to Idaho Falls to buy a boat. I asked the salesperson for a lunch recommendation, and he mentioned Pachangas. We were pleased with the experience. The food was very authentic, although we only saw gringos there. My wife could only eat half of her burrito. My enchiladas were very tasty. The prices were very reasonable. The boat salesman did...

We were passing through and stopped here. It was good restaurant in the city center. The people were very nice. We sat outside because we had a dog but the service was still excilent. The food was good but not great. I would go back. It was only $30 for all four of us. So it was a good deal.

Very accommodating. Had a couple of items not on the menu and had great flavor. Maragaritas were good as well. Fast service

Pachangas is my wife's favorite place in Idaho Falls. Her favorite is the Lobster Enchiladas which at the price of 9.99 is a steal for good Mexican seafood. I recommend that if you are in downtown Idaho Falls, stop by and give Pachangas a shot.

This is a downtown location. We ordered the Fajitas and Chili Rellenos. Both were very good...I love chili rellenos and order them frequently at whatever Mexican restaurant we might be visiting. These were probably the best ones I've had in years--fresh chilies and lots of cheese and they were nicely presented. The fajitas were good too. I suspect this place... More

Wonderful Mexican food, terrific staff, quick and friendly service and a great value for the money! Ample portions which often times are enough for yet another meal! A local establishment not to be missed!
