Best Local South of the Border Restaurant

El Gallo Giro Kuna

Readers' Picks

It has finally happened--someone has broken the near stranglehold Chapala has had on this category for more than a decade. What did it take? A menu filled with traditional and local favorites, sauces that can stand on their own, giant sizzling molcajete bowls filled with all sorts of goodness, tableside guacamole, friendly servers and a respectable margarita. Don't believe us? Just check out the line snaking outside the restaurant on a Friday or Saturday night. 482 W. Third St., Kuna, 208-922-5169,

Second Place: Chapala,

Third Place: Andrade's Restaurant,
