Regardless of which location or if its the taco bus this is the best Mexican food in the area. I lived in Mexico and missed the food here.

I think that this is the best Mexican restaurant I have ever been to, even after living in California for six years. The food is fresh, flavorful, plentiful and very affordable! The staff are very friendly and accommodating, and the building is homey and clean....More

It is a nice touch that they bring chips and beans and a salsa right away. Hubby had the chile rellenos and I had a burrito with carnitas. All very tasty.

This is our favorite place to get Mexican in Pocatello. It is fast, cheap, and authentic. I recommend the fajitas, and my husband gets the street tacos. Try it, you won't be sorry.

We've been eating here for years. Not fancy, just excellent Mexican food and excellent service. We will visit anytime in town.

The food in this restaurant is very good and cheap. The plates are big and very satisfying. The place itself is just ok, but the food compensates for that.

Love the chips and salsa/beans they provide immediately upon sitting. Their green salsa was very fresh tasting and good. The normal size burritos are huge ($4.50). There's probably a reason they serve them wrapped in aluminum foil, so you can easily take home the leftovers!...More

Based on a Nov 6 2015 article in the Idaho State Journal entitled, Restaurant owner brings authentic Mexican flavor to Pocatello" it appears to be locally owned and operation by German Brambila.
