Disciples of Flight

We never visit Ketchum without stopping for lunch at Despo's for great, and healthy, Mexican food. The chicken burrito or fajitas are perfect after a long morning hike.

Best Things Idaho

Everything about Despo's is A-plus. A healthier version of your favorite Mexican dishes, they use only the freshest and finest ingredients to create a meal of exceptional flavor. Are you a salsa lover? You'll find your new favorite in their homemade recipe.

Only In Your State

Despo's is something truly special in Idaho - eco-friendly, fresh, locally-sourced, and health-conscious, every dish is absolutely mouthwatering, but tacos are taken to a whole new level with meat fillings that are sustainably-sourced as well: wild-caught, rather than farmed, fish included. Flavorful and filling, be sure to try some of Despo's world-famous salsa on the side for the perfect taco experience!
