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

I have lived in Pocatello most my life (43). Mama Inez is for sure one of the best restaurants in town. Good food, good people, and great atmosphere. I recommend sitting in the bar area with the many flat screen TVs. --Fish

I went in just the other day for a drink and some chips and salsa. The chips were the texture of cardboard, but even more stale. The salsa had a small pool of oil on the top of it. Needless to say, I didn't bother with dinner, or getting my drink, I left, and wont go back,

Amazing food! We never drive through or leave Pocatello without stopping at the "Nez". Always great fare, hearty servings, and wonderful plate presentation. Service is top notch and we continue to see the same staff working in the restaurant which is always a good sign of strong ownership. Fresh salsa cruda on everything you cant miss on this menu we...
