Best Local South of the Border Restaurant

Chapala Mexican Restaurants

Readers' Picks

Boise may be a few states away from the U.S.-Mexico border, but there are plenty of great places to grab an enchilada and a margarita in the 208--as evidenced by the exceptionally close race for best local south-of-the-border restaurant. But of all the burrito-slinging hangouts, one reigns supreme. Perhaps it is because Chapala is so well revered that it's able to have locations all across the state. Order up a sizzling plate of fajitas or a taco salad, kick back with a Corona and imagine that you're in Mazatlan. It's a whole lot cheaper than a plane ticket, and you won't have to wait for your passport to arrive.
