We never would have gone here if not for our hosts' recommendation. The most amazing fish tacos I have ever had. They have 4 different kinds of fish, each prepared differently with different sauces, I had the Swai, a fish I never heard of from Hawaii. My husband's burrito was of the giant variety. Very simple diner/like decor, only open until 4 in the afternoon and closed on Sundays, the owner wants a life outside of the restaurant. Staff is so friendly and helpful. Place is simple but clean and comfortable.

By far the best mexican food in the inland northwest. If you want an amazing burrito, go for the shrimp burrito.

This place has just as good, or even better, food than the restaurants I used to go to when I lived in San Diego, California! I grew up eating Mexican food in Southern California & Tijuana, so I know what to expect. This is a grab & go sort of place but it does offer seating too. Everything I've had here has been good. Since I'm a shredded beef taco addict I can't help but keep ordering their tacos & lots of them! This is my absolute favorite place to eat in Sandpoint & Even though I live quite a bit north from there, I still make the trip down just to get their food. If you like Mexican food with a casual ambiance you'll probably love this place! It sure reminds me of home! Thanks for reading!

Love the atmosphere, the staff and the food. The fish taco is my favorite. Reasonably priced and easy downtown location.
