I realize Idaho Falls may not be the Mexican Food capital of America, but this place is a disappointment. Margaritas are watery and they barely salted the rim. The chips are over-fried and stale, salsa is like tomato water, and worst of all, they were "out" of cheese dip/queso when I was there. You're better off eating at Wendy's.

better than some of the other Mexican food restaurants i have been in Idaho, but in no way is it authentic. Still, the food was pretty good.

The waitress was very nice and helpful and recommended dishes for us, having never been there before. The food was good, but did they forget the alcohol in my margarita?

Dropped by for dinner while on a road trip. The food was fresh, hot, and very attentive service by the wait staff. Loved their chips and salsa. Would definitely go there again.

We ordered the Fajita for 2 and had an EXCELLENT dinner for 2 and another excellent lunch for 2 the next day with the leftovers! The food here was fabulous and way too much food for just one meal. The price for this 4 meal special was under $30 including tax and tip!

I made the mistake of trying their competitor that is across the street previously and wish I would have came here first. Homemade corn tortillas with my mojocate and a margarita to drink and I found my Mexican place in town. Fast and friendly service.

This is our 4th visit to Idaho Falls and our 4th visit to this restaurant. Always delicious and accommodating. I have corn and chicken allergies and I am able to eat a wonderful meal here. If we return to this area this property is at the top of our list!

On our way to Yellowstone, we spent the night in Idaho Falls. Tried this restaurant for dinner. The beef fajitas? Very good. Complimentary hot refried bean dip served with chips and salsa? To die for. Can't say enough good about it. I have never seen this at any other Mexican restaurant. Too bad I live in Tulsa. I would be... More

Their food is closer to being traditional Mexican than most rahter than Tex-Mex. We like the tamales and chili relenos especially.
