Loved it!

This is one of those restaurants that when you walk in, you know it's going to be very good or very bad. Lucky for us, it was very good. Very pleasant service, and the food was delicious. I had chile rellenos and a tamale and my husband had fajitas. All fresh, homemade, and very reasonably... read more

This little restaurant may not have the best curb appeal, but oh my the food is so good!!! Don't judge it by the exterior. The family that runs it is super friendly , the service is very good and the food can't be best !!! We've tried every Mexican restaurant in Mountain Home and this is the best !!!

The salsa was very good, and the waitress was very friendly. The chips were cold and not really fresh. The food was pretty good, but the restaurant itself was more like a bar. It wasn't really inviting. The menus had food stuck to them which is kinda gross. There was a guy who came and asked us how our food... More

Nice family run restaurant! As close to authentic as anywhere in the Southwest. Huge burritos and so delicious! We enjoyed chatting with family, too. Family friendly prices.

We just moved to this area and I wanted to try some of the local places. The parking lot at Los Pinos was alway full when I drove by so we gave it a try. It is a small, privately owned business but it still had plenty of seating. There were a couple families with small children in there when... More

I lived in Mexico and miss REAL Mexican food. This is the only place for miles (maybe states?) that I can find real chile rellenos! My hubby had the carnitas and as a non carnita lover they are GREAT!

Traveling through on vacation and hungry, we arrived at Los Pinos at about 8:30pm on the recommendation of a review from another website. At that hour we were not surprised to find an empty parking lot and restaurant. Taking the server's advice I ordered the Sopes Carnitas which were really good - well prepared and flavorful. Reminded me of a... More
