Years ago they had mediocre food... They've done nothing but go downhill since then!!! If you want good Mexican in Sandpoint at a sit-down restaurant go to Fiesta Bonita... If you just want a good fast, but awesome Mexican food, go to Joels!!!More

All we wanted was a snack and a drink. Nachos and Huckleberry Margaritas? OK! The front desk agent at the hotel recommended Jalapeños to us. Eclectic decor and a fun atmosphere. Excellent service too.

I must apologize, Harry. The snapper is not frozen, but it is kept on ice for the flight over from Seattle. Still, it was obviously not prepared properly for your meal, and for that I am sorry. Next time, please speak up to me or...More

We choose this over Joel's because it had a bar and was a sitdown restaurant. The service was attentive. We wanted to have a drink, order two entrees and share a side dish. There was not a list of side dishes, but the waitress made...More

Had to get some Mexican food, always a favorite of ours when we travel. Found this place on one of our family walks and knew we needed to come back for dinner. Great salsa, friendly service, and good portions!
