Learn about our culture

Authentic Mexican cuisine is steeped in culture and tradition. That’s why we strive to bring you a little piece of tradition with every dish we serve of authentic Mexican food in Columbia Falls, MT. Mexican cuisine is very multifaceted and diverse. It brings together traditional foods as far back as the Aztecs and combines them with European, Caribbean, and even West African influences. The tradition of using a tortilla as a wrap was started by the Aztecs, but the ingredients and methods of cooking these “wraps” is what makes the food truly Mexican. We love being an authentic Mexican restaurant in Columbia Falls, MT. It allows us to bring a little taste of Mexican tradition to the area!
