A Taste of Mexico

We had a fun night of dining. Great fajitas and burritos. I hear the breakfast burritos are also delicious. Young waitress was a delight.

I read the reviews of el Herradero and it is very highly rated. After going there I found it is like a drive thru Mexican fast food place with tables and tips expected. Food is very inexpensive and the quality is why. Asada (beef steak) was tough, grisly, and over-cooked. The burrito had little filling other than a few chunks... More

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.

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,,!
