My brothers and father came here for a little outing. We were immediately put-off by the fact that they had locked the doors 30 minutes prior to closing we have us attitude about opening them again. Thankfully the manager was there as instructed the Employees. I've never been to a Mexican restaurant (Tex mex) that didn't have either queso dip... More

The food is great and so is the service. We have never had a bad meal there for Breakfast or lunch. The restaurant is clean and so are the bathrooms.

I ate at this location with a work associate. The service was outstanding. The food was very good and fresh. This was the first time that I have eaten at this location and I will be back in the future.

We used to go here a lot, as it was kid & family friendly. The food portions starting getting smaller, and the meats were lousy. Sorry to find that it has deteriorated.

It is really hard to find authentic Mexican food in Idaho, however, this was pretty good all things considered. The beans were nothing to write home about, but the chips and salsa were good and the tacos and enchiladas were very well prepared. The staff was very friendly and the restaurant was very clean overall. Pleasant atmosphere and a great... More

The chips were warm and the sauce great. The main course was very delicious. The servers were very attentive but not intrusive.

Had lunch there last week and thought it was pretty good for Idaho. After living 15 miles north of the Baja border for 55 years, myself and fellow CA refugee thought the food was pretty good. Service was better than most. Our drinks and chips were replaced quickly along with the bean dip. Food was the best I have had... More

We were traveling through here in mid-April and met a friend for lunch. We had done the same nearly a year ago and at that time we enjoyed a good meal. This was not the case today, our meal was sub-par,(very bland and un-appetizing) the chips and salsa were really lacking, the service was slow and uncaring and it was... More

Most over priced Mexican Food in Nampa. Look around no Hispanics here other than wait staff. No Lunch specials here on weekends, other local Mexican restaurants highlight there lunch specials. Last time I was there, had a large group on Sunday, chips came in repeatedly smaller baskets. Pico degio was bland and watery. Food is greasy and poorly prepared. Margaritas... More
