Sorry to say, maybe being from Southern California we are spoiled and used to good Mexican food . This is not good !!! Don't waste your money . Jack in the box has better tacos. Nachos were decent but not over the top.

Fairly decent Mexican food. Family section not immune to noises emanating from bar section. Entrance involves a sharp descent so watch your step. Service is mediocre.

The flavor of the food is good, but not spicy. Service needs Improvement, Good Bar area, however the margaritas although slightly strong, lack the flavors other than alcohol. Try cheese Crisps with a side of enchilada sauce.

This place is a great Pocatello staple. It has American style Mexican food that is very good but is not super ethinetic.

I've tried this place several times and the food and service gets worse every time. I'm done and I'm not going back. The food, including the sauce, is almost tasteless. The crab and shrimp items are the worst. Picture fake "krab" and tiny, mushy, canned...More

Locals like it. It's good. The crab and cream cheese enchiladas are yummy and rich. If you're from out of town it's certainly worth trying out.
