Very impressed with a Little Local Cafe. The food is wonderful! I ordered their Chili Relleno plate and it was very good.

After not getting any food at the Angel Cafe in Boise City, we went on to Clayton and stopped at Rabbit Ear Cafe. The food and service was great- we had Huevos Rancheros and a breakfast burrito both with green chili.

Fries were good. Service was nonexistent. Waitress was preoccupied with everything but her tables. She never checked back and had to ask for water.

My wife and I have stopped here a few times. The Mexican food is good and reasonably priced. The atmosphere is good for a family restaurant. Very casual.

Lots of cars in the parking lot made us think we were in for a great meal. I was disappointed! I ordered he enchilada plate and it was drowning in sauce. I also ordered the guacamole and although the waitress told me she would bring it right out she never did. My bf ordered a hamburger and he was happy.... More

Best things on the menu: green chili enchiladas, tamales, chili rellenos. I love that they serve pinto beans instead of refried. My Aunt lives in Clayton and eats lunch here almost everyday :)

We try to always stop in here when we get close food is always good! It has been 2 years since we were there and the decor has changed. I ask our waitress if they had changed hands and she stated they had not but decided to "declutter" the walls. Food was very good and service was excellent.

Very average. Not very good New Mexican food. Too close to Texas I guess Red chili on enchilada had no flavor or spice. Rice was overly tomato flavor. Beans were bland. Stuffed Chile relleno had too much breading. Should have gone to Dairy Queen.

Excellent food. We had the green chili burger with fries. No beer service but the food was so good we didn't miss the beer. Food takes a little longer to get to you so relax.

Thank Mary M
