Fast and friendly service

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.

Two dinners for under $15 is very reasonable. I ordered the chicken burrito combo. I believe the menu said chicken,sour cream & cheese in a tortilla. All I got was chicken.It was well seasoned with a little moisture,but it needed the sour cream & cheese. My husband ordered the 3 regular ground beef enchiladas. They had melted cheese & enchilada...

El Herradero is a small family owned place with great Mexican food at very reasonable prices. I love their tacos! they come with two 6" tortillas, meat, onions, cilantro, and salsa. All for $1.25! two tacos and your full, three and you are stuffed. so throw in a drink and you have a great lunch or dinner for under $5.

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.

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
