The table-side guacamole can't be beat! All the food here is excellent. My fajitas were perfectly cooked with still-snappy veggies. They stopped accepting reservations (and good for them because they are too small to survive parties canceling as often happened) so come early! If you...More

This restaurant serves the best food in town. It is small in size, but mighty in Mexican cuisine and hospitality. It is a true "hidden gem!"

Izzy's menu is brilliant. Fish tacos with the sole are superb. Excellent vegetarian tacos (or) fajitas with perfectly cooked portobello mushrooms, squash, carrots, and sautéed onions. One of the best in Wolfeboro, a must do

This is a small restaurant just a little outside of downtown Wolfeboro. The food is great - guacamole made tableside was perfection, the mole sauce sublime, tamales not too dense, and they mix a good drink. There are two people to take care of the...More
