Good Food

It had been over five years since I dined at Mama Inez restaurant, and I must say it still has a very good menu and the food is excellent. The atmosphere is relaxing, whether eating in the dinning room or the bar area and yes the wait staff did an excellent job of getting the food to our table... read more

When I tried them they were horrible! they still are! I asked if I can have ground beef but they gave me something weird. But have great customer service! If you want only great customer service but don't want great or awesome food go here if you don't want great customer service (or great customer service) and want great food... More

Mama Inez has good salsa and chips which come complimentry when you are seated. The food is average in flavor and menu choices. They have a bar area as well as a dining area. Each week day they feature a special. Wednesday is nacho day. The nachos are large, so plan on sharing with another person or two. You get... More

The meals we have had in the past were really good. But this last time it wasn't as good, don't know why because it always was.

For a small, 'mom & pop' place, the service is superior and the food is outrageously good. Our favorite menu items are the seafood appetizer and the Chili Colorado burrito. We always order the large and take half of it home to savor a second time. Have compared these with similar dishes all over the country and found none that... More

Hadn't been in this area for 5 years, stopped by and checked to see if they still sold the cheese crisps. They did and still good as I remember. The cheese and onion enchilada are still as good as in the past.

Very average-below average mexican food. Most likely wouldn't go back again. They didn't have queso for the chips which was weak.

Not gourmet, but really good. The Cheese Crisp appetizer was great, and our entrees ware very good. Most come as small, med, or large; and offer enchilada sauce choices. We had a half order appetizer and medium meals - way too much. Odd to find good Chile Relleno in Idaho. We are from So. TX, and this place would fit... More
