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.

I must support the title in the claim. I have lived in various parts of Arizona, California and Texas combined for about 30 years. I have had A LOT of Mexican food. However, when it comes to the overall flavor and quality of the food, this little place in Idaho wins my vote for first place! We couldn't decide what... More

This place used to be good value for the money, but now its quite more expensive. My favorite was the fried complete fish. This was different than else where. I think this was the only Mexican restaurant that served this dish in town

Tried out this restaurant on a visit to Idaho Falls. Good atmosphere, Friendly service, good food. Everything you would expect at a Mexican restaurant. The food was prepared as ordered and served quickly and pipping hot! Prices were very reasonable. Overall a good dining experience.
