In Boise, our favorite Mexican food place is Casa Mexico, and Celia's is like a taste of home while traveling. On this trip, we were regaled by strolling mariachis who serenaded us on Mother' s Day. Delightful.

Grabbed a late dinner at Celia's just off El Camino Real in Palo Alto. Very good quality. Solid Mexican fare, with some creative options. Very satisfying, and reasonable, dining experience after a "tough day at the office".
