“Not so hot but its close to home”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

Used a buynownorthwest coupon so at least the value was there. No fountain sodas and limited chip servings? I do not think I have ever been to a mexican restaurant where they limited the chips and salsa. Food was adequate, no tomatoes with the fajitas. Server could have been friendlier. I won't return unless I use a coupon, too tired to cook and too tired to drive to a better place. It was too warm inside. I remember years ago being told there was no a/c in the building.

“Brilliant Mexican Fare Off the Beaten Path”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

We tried this restaurant while on vacation after reading the review of a fellow Tripadvisor member. The food was prepared with care and the the menu had a wide selection of meals that satsified the whole family. We went early and the place filled up quickly after 6pm, so I recommend getting there early to get a table. The owner was great to interact with and his passion definitely complimented the overall experience. Prices were also very reasonable given the quality of food received!

“This is an amazing Mexican food gem in rural northern Idaho!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2009

We were impressed by the owner's attention to detail from the beautifully painted murals to the immaculately clean restrooms. The owner (who was also our server) was excited to discuss the menu and offer suggestions; he seemed to genuinely love creating a great meal. The portion sizes where large not to mention the homemade salsa and tortilla chips served before the meal. The food was great quality with that "home cooked" feel all at a good value. We loved it so much the first time we went back later that week to try a new dish! The only slight draw back is they did not have their liquor license yet so we could not enjoy a Corona with our meal. But this was a minor detail.
