Our meals were delicious. My daughter had chile relleno, I had vegetarian enchiladas and my love had some type of huge beef burrito. All the food was delicious. Chips and salsa were great, too. Great margaritas. Excellent service.

As a former resident of Pocatello this was one of our favorite places to eat. The cheese crisps are something that must be tried. Also the lunch specials are great and the salsa is so delicious. When we visit this one of our favorite places...More

The service was very fast, the food just mediocre. The chili verde burrito had very little meat in it. The meat in the taco and beef burrito tasted reheated. There was food and plenty of it. I would not rush back to this restaurant.

The food was very good, on par with most of the other Mexican restaurants in town. The service was very good too, the servers were very attentive, and the place had a nice atmosphere that day.

We chose this local place while traveling and were glad we went. We knew we chose the right place when my daughter said, "This smells like Nana's house on Christmas Day." The food was delicious and they served huge portions, so we could have shared...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.

Very flavorful. Most meals offered in S, M, L. I wish I had ordered one of those because the order of chicken carnitas was large. However, it was a delicious dish. Morgan, our waitress, was helpful and friendly.
