Campos plans to remodel the building to accommodate both its specialty grocery store business and a 44-seat restaurant.

Idaho Statesman reporter Nicole Foy named Campos one of the best places for tacos in the Treasure Valley, citing its carne asada variety. A 2011 Boise Weekly review echoed a similar sentiment. Yelp reviewer Justin P. said “This place is legit. The butcher can hook you up with pastor and everything to cook at home too!”

Campos also operates a location in Nampa and opened the current Boise store in the former No Lawyers Bar & Grill spot on N. Orchard.
