About Us

Enrique’s Mexican Restaurant, formerly known as El Gallo Giro, began in 1998 in the small town of Kuna, Idaho. In 1999, after a long year of hard work, dedication and love Enrique and Ana were able to purchase the business from the current owner Lucio Prado. Ever since the purchase of the restaurant Enrique and Ana began to transform it into the business you know and love today. The menu is inspired by both Enrique and Ana’s family recipes that have been passed down from generations. One of the most popular and well known menu item is the famous molcajete’s. These dishes are made and presented in a hot lava rock bowl, sizzling all the way to the table!

In 2015 Ana decided to change the name from El Gallo Giro to Enrique’s Mexican Restaurant. After 17 years of making the restaurant to what it is today, Ana believed it was time to give Enrique the recognition he deserved. Enrique lives and breathes his restaurant. On any given day he can be seen shaking hands and sharing a hearty laugh with his customers as he works his way through the dining room.

Enrique’s Mexican Restaurant has embark on many great life changing experience through the 21 years of business, from winning 2016 Idaho State Small Business Persons of the Year, Best of the Treasure Valley and Best of Boise. But the summer of 2018 will be the biggest life event they will experience. The 4,600 Sq. Ft. building they are in now has outgrown the demand of the community. In mid September of 2018 they have moved to a 12,000 Sq. Ft. building that will feature a 360 degree bar, San Miguel VIP room, Casa 1884 banquet room and a patio. They are more than excited to share this amazing accomplishment with all their employees, loyal customers, friends and family.

Enrique and Ana would like to give a special thank you to their employees.  Your hard work, dedication and willing to make the restaurant atmosphere fun and inviting allows the owners to maintain a family oriented restaurant. Employees like ours are the epitome of professionalism. Thank you for bringing your best to work every single day. Keeping a company alive is a great task that they have continued to do. We owe our success to our employees as well.

Enrique and Ana cannot thank their employees, customers, friends and family enough for all the support, love and help they have received throughout the 21 years. Without them they would not be where they are today.

They enjoy serving the community and hope you visit us soon!
