So so compared to Boise mex restaurants

Big portions and good prices but burrito was filled with 80% rice (couldn't even taste the carne asada steak) plus it was so salty that I couldn't take a 2nd bite.

This small restaurant serves its standard Mexican dishes quickly and efficiently. They bring out the chips with 2 different salsa's plus beans to help complement our meals.

I ordered the spicy pork burrito plate. Portions were generous, food was tasty, service prompt, prices very reasonable. Very good value. I work in Pocatello weekly, so I'll be back.

Moved here Thom Oklahoma, they do not know what a Chile relleno is, their version is basically an omelet with a pepper inside, not a real Chile relleno, maybe they should take a trip to Oklahoma or Texas to experance real Mexican food,,!

Me and my wife were really excited to try this Mexican food that everyone says it's amazing, but we didn't get the chance to try it because the waitress gave us the worst service I can ever have. We were there a whole hour and she never came to take our order and when the manager walked in to help... More

Literally the best breakfast burritos you will ever ever have. My brother and I are away for college and always ask our parents to drive over a bunch of frozen burritos for later dates. Yum sauce! They are huge, too--I usually can't eat a whole one in one sitting. I haven't really tried anything else on the menu, but whenever... 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!
