Food bad, service less than average, atmosphere poor. I get better Mexican food out of a can. My wife ordered the carne asada. It was so salty and tough, you would have thought it was leather found in the ocean. I ordered the seafood chimichangas....More

I love the salsa here. Normally I’m kind of a not-spicey kind of eater, but the mild salsa is tasteless even to me! I get the medium because the vegetables are more chunky, then my husband mixes red hot in his fur more flavor.

The food was just horrible. The beef looked like finely minced paste and tasted worse. I told the waitress that the food was not good and she said OK and walked away. In spite of the poor reviews we were told to give it a...More

Compared to other Tex-Mexican restaurants the taste/quality is average and a little less flavorful than I was expecting. The service can vary as university student population ebbs and flows. Expect to pay $15+ each for a combination meal, drink and dessert. It was nice but...More

I would recommend this place to everyone. The food is good and the waitresses are nice. They will do anything to make your visit pleasant. This is a locally owned and operated business. As for those who are mad because this isn't "authentic" Mexican food.......More

The food was good and the service is good. But it's definitely Americanized Mexican food so if you're looking for authentic Mexican cuisine, this probably isn't the place for you

We ordered the waitresses suggestion, the Con Crema, and shared the large dish. It was plenty. It is a white(ish) sauce with chicken and steak (also a shrimp option) and we enjoyed every bite. Very unique and delicious. It came with very good rice and...More

There are a handful of "somewhat" authentic Mexican restaurants in the area, but this is definitely not one of them. Folks who have lived in the area for some time seem to like it. My guess, they haven't had real Mexican food to compare it...More

If you like real, authentic Mexican food, look elsewhere. Many locals love this place, but we have yet to find anything that is really authentic and has much flavor. There are a number of better options in Rexburg for authentic Mexican food.
