We were looking for something other than gas station food and came across this little gem. Delicious Mexican food and the perfect portion size, just enough to satisfy and not feel over stuffed.

We stopped here for lunch based on other reviews and weren't disappointed. The service was great and the food was awesome. My wife had the Chile Rellenos, and I had a burrito. Everything was delicious and hot. .

Very impressed with a Little Local Cafe. The food is wonderful! I ordered their Chili Relleno plate and it was very good.

After not getting any food at the Angel Cafe in Boise City, we went on to Clayton and stopped at Rabbit Ear Cafe. The food and service was great- we had Huevos Rancheros and a breakfast burrito both with green chili.

Fries were good. Service was nonexistent. Waitress was preoccupied with everything but her tables. She never checked back and had to ask for water.

My wife and I have stopped here a few times. The Mexican food is good and reasonably priced. The atmosphere is good for a family restaurant. Very casual.
