If you like Mexican Dinning, you've found the Best Place in Idaho Falls. Save room for the Chocolate Enchilada! A crape tortilla, filled with vanilla cream pudding, a banana, rolled up and covered with whipped cream and fudge drizzled over all. After tasting, you'll get one for each person. This is served No Where on earth, but Jalisco's. I know,... More

We just flew in to meet up with our son for a leisurely driving vacation through Wyoming and Idaho. Previous to living in Nebraska, our son spent the last couple of years working out of the border...

We were seated quickly and pretty hungry. We got our chips,salsa and beans right away. Well then we sat for sometime without being helped. There must have been a mix up but we weren't impressed.

Well, that turned out for the best - this restaurant impressed us in all around. The wait staff were extremely pleasant and went out of their way to make us comfortable, the food was simply yum,...

The meal was very unique and the waiter very helpful in having us try some of their specialities. We had the enchiladas and the carnitas - both were very good and authentic as we get a lot of Mexican food where we live in AZ and this was as good as any.

The service was good, the food was average, and the location is great. Kids menu is super cheap on Sundays- that's a bonus for traveling families!
