The taco bar is tasty with lots of meat choices. This is Mexican at it's best. You definitely want to visit the Kuna location. Savory treats and the service is good too.

I've been here many times. I live in Caldwell and travel 45 minutes each way to enjoy their food. The service is great but expect a long wait on a weekend evening or weekday lunch hour. It is worth the wait.
