Some of the best Mexican food we have ever enjoyed. My boys loved their horchatas and we were left feeling that our meal this was worth a two hour drive.

Went to this Mexican Restaurant because of it's high rating. The food was very good, and since we were late, and the last couple, we chatted at length with the owner. We were very impressed with her zeal for her restaurant. Her story about coming to Buhl from CA , and starting this restaurant with virtually nothing, was so impressive.... More

We ordered the mocajete. A dish with chicken, rice, cautus, cheeses, other seasonings served in a hot clay pot. This dish is rarely on the menu at other Mexican restauranrs. La Plaza had it we were pleasantly surprised. The other menu items looked good! As we are 2 days in town, hope we get back here again!

We came here while staying at a winery close by. Loved the food. Real traditional Mexican. My husband had the lamb which he said was tender and delicious. I had chicken in a cream sauce which was perfectly spiced. If you are in the area it is a must.

We love Mexican food. Who know we would find one of the best Mexican restaurants in Buhl, Idaho? The owner is friendly, and if you happen to be in the restaurant before they get busy, you can find out many things about the restaurant and her family. We had a pork brisket was excellent! It was served with beans and... More

I have been to restaurants around the world. This rates amoung the best. Its a small place. Everything is cooked from scratch. Lupe, the owner and cook, is simply amazing and genuine. Who would of thought food like this is in Buhl, ID.

When I go to a Mexican restaurant I order my usual; enchiladas. But when I looked at the menu of La Plaza I knew this wasn't just another TexMex joint. You can get the standard, TexMex fare but it's so much more fun to watch someone's eyes bulge when they hear the sizzle come from a stone molcjete filled with... More

I had the chicken Molcajete and my wife had the lamb. Wow! The food was excellent and that's underselling it. The family that runs it is friendly and the restaurant is clean and cozy. The spices were just perfect and the flavors melded together to make this one of the best meals I've eaten anywhere. I can't stop telling people... More
