More local flavor

Another restaurant in Hyde Park. Although this one isn’t my personal fav for Mexican food, it is a popular place. And it still seems to be going strong, despite the recent closures of several other restaurants in Boise. The space it occupies has seen several restaurants come and go over the years, including a Pan-Asian one I really liked that was called the Pacific Rim.

The Hyde Park crowd seems to favor the “basics” over the unusual. So you can get pizza, burgers, beer, fries, fajitas, enchiladas, meatloaf, salmon, steak, grilled meat, coffee, pastries, ice cream, wine. But none of the eateries are chains, no fast food, no drive-throughs; all are locally owned. And I’m glad for that. Keeps the unique character of the neighborhood.
