We went to Mama Inez yesterday for lunch. The owners & staff were incredibly nice. It’s a really cute place. I had the chili colorado. It was fine but not great. The prices are reasonable but the food is average.

We needed to sit down for a moment. Ordered a couple of beers that came with chips and salsa. We weren't hungry so I can't comment on the chips. The beers were good. Enjoyed people watching from the outdoor seating area.

Generally resort towns have high prices, but Mama Inez in Ketchum has really good food and non-resort prices. It is a very casual atmosphere and not for "high dining", but the food is great, the service fine and the cost outstanding for its location. They...More
