We thought the high point of our visit to Coeur d'Alene would be the lake cruise and stunning nature views. As good as those were, this small Mexican restaurant was even better!! The menu is extensive, everything we had and talked to other patrons about...More

The food is good. Tastes like fast Mexican food that I had living in Southern California. Comes with chips and salsa and was fast enough to get on a 30 minute lunch break.

You can dine in and get chips and salsa. I usually get the sweet pork burrito.the burritos are so big you have left overs for later. But their food overall is good and a great price.

I'm not sure what kind of standard the other reviewers hold as far as Mexican food goes, but I thought the food was very mediocre. It wasn't very warm, first of all. It took about 30 seconds for them to slap my tacos together. The...More
