We were traveling through Pocatello with family from vacation. We used trip advisor to find this Mexican restaurant. The food was in fact delicious even though as we pulled up we were worried a little bit. It is a clean restaurant and the food is authentic and delicious. We will look forward to eating here again it is worth the... More

the wife loves the spicier Mexican food and could eat here everyday still have dishes for milder tastes but if you like real Mexican go ala carte and go crazy prices great for such flavorful cuisine

We were on a road trip and decided to try this place since we LOVE Mexican cuisine. Small place tucked away in Pocatello but worth the short jaunt off the freeway! We ordered Al La Carte items and were delighted - we recommend the spicy pork tacos, chile relleno, and the wet chimichanga. The green salsa was the best ever!

The food was very good and cheap. The service on the other hand was horrible. The we a waiter that took our order and that was about all we ever saw him. Someone else had to deliver our food, never got a refill on drinks or chip and couldn't even bring us a check. We had to go seek him... More

I grew up in Poky and used to go to this place a lot. I came back to visit after a few years and this place is still as great (or better) than I remember. Best burritos ever!

First, let me qualify that I have been living in Texas for over 30 years. I have eaten my fair share of Mexican food all across the state. For this reason my review may be a bit biased as I am used to having a plethora of excellent Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurants at my disposal. I wanted to try El... More

Can not beat for price and great food. Love veggie and spicy pork burrito. Have 3 locations including a taco bus. Half the price of fancier places with better food.

We moved to Pocatello 9 years ago and El Herradero is our favorite place to eat. There are many Mexican restaurants in town but most of them are "American-Mexican" which don't appeal to us. If you happen to love that kind of Mexican, don't stop at El Herradero. But if you like authentic Mexican, then you'll love it! The service... More

I have no idea how they got such a high rating, but maybe this just the standard for Pocatello. I have eaten a lot of mexican food around the US. I have never been to mexico, It is possible they have a more traditional menu. It just didn't sit right with me.
