BEST FISH TACOS IN THE TREASURE VALLEY

I've tried fish tacos everywhere I go, and these were hands down the very best. My friend had the French dip and was quite happy with the amount of beef and the jous was great. Waitstaff great on a busy day. Alcohol a little overpriced, but the food was quite good and reasonably priced. Can't wait... read more

We completely enjoyed our dinner. Had one filet and one Black & Bleu Rib Eye (special). Both were outstanding, prepared to order and just right. Served with very tasty grilled asparagus. One wild rice, which was good, and one garlic mashers, which were just out of this work. Our server recommended Weisskirke Belgian White Ale, which we thought a great... More

We found Kahootz on Trip Advisor after moving into the Meridian area. It is an unassuming place from the outside, but the food is fantastic! The service has always been friendly and attentive. We've had lunches and dinners there that were excellent. The dessert menu is also exceptional with the bread pudding served with sizzling caramel sauce a top pick... More

We love this place and eat here 2 to 3 times a month on Friday nights for dinner. They always have great beers on tap and creative dinner and appetizer specials. The place is know for big prime rib. It's a small place so go early to get a seat without waiting but it is worth, there is outside seating... More

We really enjoyed our dinner at Kahootz . The décor is a bit basic but the food was very good. We had excellent reasonably priced Rib Eye and New York Steaks which were served with nicely cooked vegetables and potatoes as well as tasty Baked Halibut served with rice . The Indian Creek Idaho Cabernet Sauvignon paired perfectly with our... More

Stopped by here at the recommendation of one of my business associates, as his office is nearby. Had kinda low expectations, but woah, I was wrong. This place was excellent. We all tried something different, Fish Taco's (Me), Top Sirloin, bacon Cheeseburger, shredded pork chipotle sandwich, salad's, starter soup (Vegetable Beef)... Everything was really good, cooked perfectly, great portion sizes,... More
