This was the worst Mesican food I have ever had. The only reason I didn't rate it a 1 is because the waitress was so sweet and and an excellent server. I would rate her a solid 5.

Stopped on our way back to Boise from a ski trip. Got the chicken taco salad, and it was so good. The chicken was one of the best I have had at a Mexican restaurant. Not the best ambience, but good food!

We went here based on these reviews, and sadly disappointed. We ordered chicken burritos which included the worst flavorless chicken with nasty extra pieces...the tortilla wasn't even folded right. The server was friendly but never returned to fill our drinks. Chips tasted store bought but the salsas were good. Won't be returning, Mi Casa which is nearby is 100 times... More

Menudo 🍜 My favorite. Wish it wasn't 13 bucks. .. But oh well...worth it....they have 3 dips with the chips they give you. The red sauce, oh hawt dang!😈 Spicy! The verde, is delish. Then you also have the bean dip! Boyfriend got tacos which were decent size! He could only eat one! Wish they had real Horchata! ; (... More

We read about this restaurant today while out geocaching, and it was our top pick for a late dinner. We snagged an outside table and had a beer, then ordered chicken enchiladas verdes. Excellent food and service, friendly staff. We felt welcome and at home. I can't recommend this place enough.

This little restaurant may not have the best curb appeal, but oh my the food is so good!!! Don't judge it by the exterior. The family that runs it is super friendly , the service is very good and the food can't be best !!! We've tried every Mexican restaurant in Mountain Home and this is the best !!!

This is one of those restaurants that when you walk in, you know it's going to be very good or very bad. Lucky for us, it was very good. Very pleasant service, and the food was delicious. I had chile rellenos and a tamale and my husband had fajitas. All fresh, homemade, and very reasonably priced. We were just passing... More
