It is a nice touch that they bring chips and beans and a salsa right away. Hubby had the chile rellenos and I had a burrito with carnitas. All very tasty.

This is our favorite place to get Mexican in Pocatello. It is fast, cheap, and authentic. I recommend the fajitas, and my husband gets the street tacos. Try it, you won't be sorry.

We've been eating here for years. Not fancy, just excellent Mexican food and excellent service. We will visit anytime in town.

The food in this restaurant is very good and cheap. The plates are big and very satisfying. The place itself is just ok, but the food compensates for that.

Love the chips and salsa/beans they provide immediately upon sitting. Their green salsa was very fresh tasting and good. The normal size burritos are huge ($4.50). There's probably a reason they serve them wrapped in aluminum foil, so you can easily take home the leftovers! Had the carne asada and it was delicious. Next time I might see if they... More

You can't miss going to El Herradero. This is a small building without lots of tables and is usually pretty full around lunch and dinner - and that is for a reason. It is great food and great price. Chips, salsa are offered for free with your meal and given before you order. Great menu and lots of options. We... More

Awesome burritos and very reasonable prices. Fully stuffed burrito with your choice of meat and a big bag of home made chip's and salsa for about 7 dollar's. Very fast service.

I love Mexican food. The outside and inside of this restaurant needs a lot of updating, but the chips/green salsa and food was delicious! I ordered ala carte - 1 cheese enchilada, beans and rice and I have never, ever had such inexpensive food. The enchilada was $2 and each side was $1, so the total for my meal was... More
