Not only is this my favorite restaurant in Blackfoot, it's my favorite anywhere! They offer shredded beef (it's my favorite) which most other Mexican restaurants/taco trucks that I've been to don't. I've been going here regularly for 11 years and they've nearly always been consistent...More

Stopped based on other reviews. Very low key looking, but food and service were very good. Had the lunch specials, which were good portions. Dinners looked awesome. Would definitely go back.
