Delicious food that seemed fairly authentic Mexican. It's a little place, but the service and charm are great. It's clearly a local favorite--so yummy. The carnitas and pastor were both yummy. Price was decent.

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.
