I am glad that Los Amigos closed. We didn't like it. There is a new restaurant in its place called Casa Montana. It is very good. We have stated that Mountain Home does not need another Mexican, Chinese, or fast food restaurant. BUT-this one can stay as long as it is as good as it has been on our 2 visits this week. They have been open about 2 months, but we just discovered this place. They are part of the same group that owns El Charro, but this place is sooo much better. The variety and freshness is wonderful.
Tonight I had the casa montana fajitas which has shrimp, chicken, and steak. They were some of the best I have had in this city. My wife had the Camarones al Mojo de Ajo. This is shrimp sauteed in sweet roasted garlic, onions, tomatoes, & fresh avocado over mexican rice. This is a lighter meal and her new favorite. It had lots of shrimp and the avocado was fresh. On our last visit, we had the shrimp tacos which were exceptional. I think we will be frequent visitors here. There are so many menu items to try. They bring fresh salsa and chips. The salsa is excellent, but we both prefer a thinner chip.
They do have a small full service bar, unlike the last place who said they were waiting for their license. The service staff is excellent. The new owners have cleaned and brightened the restaurant. I think this place will be a winner at this location!
