I chose this restaurant because my favorite place in town for Mexican food doesn't have a full bar. I had a steak fajita, which seems really difficult to mess up. They just weren't flavorful, just very peppery. The veggies weren't cooked enough, and the steak...More

Mama Inez is a favorite of mine. Ate at the one in Idaho Falls weekly. Now that it's closed, I stop at this one to get my nacho and crab and shrimp monterey fix. Love the shredded beef on the nachos. Staff is friendly.

Sorry to say, maybe being from Southern California we are spoiled and used to good Mexican food . This is not good !!! Don't waste your money . Jack in the box has better tacos. Nachos were decent but not over the top.
