1 star review only because I couldn't give zero stars, I rarely review...
Read the 2 reviews on Yelp and the owner (Enes) lives and operates his business from his home about 1.5 miles from our home, did not see these reviews so I don’t know what happened to our cab ride???
Talked to him twice, 2nd time the day before and set specific pickup at our home at 5:45am to the airport.
Next day 5:45am came and no US Taxi, waited until 6:00am and called the owner (Enes) and he said his driver was looking for our home? Really? We live in a subdivision 1.5 miles from your location I told him, he said driver was close...
6:15am we waited a 1/2 hour and gave them a chance to show up but could not wait any longer or we'd miss our flight so we had to drive our own vehicle and park at the airport ourselves. What started out to be a $35 cab ride turned into $227 parking fee for the 3 weeks we were gone...
Enes called while we were driving to the airport, his driver was still looking. I told him to forget it, we were driving ourselves. Enes said he was not happy with his driver and was going to let him go!!! Don't really want to hear about a business's problems, not my problem...
Anyway, just needed to put in my honest 2 cents worth, guess there is a reason he only has 2 reviews in a year on Yelp!!! Not sure how I can be the only one on YP with a 1 star???
Live and learn, next time Uber...
US Taxi is my go to. Enes and his crew are very polite, respectful, and engaging individuals with timeliness and service you would expect. When I travel as a solo woman in the early a.m. or late p.m. I feel very safe and relaxed knowing Enes and his crew will are reliable, respectful and professional. When we travel as a family - - it is the same great story over and over. Wouldn't recommend anyone else!
I read the reviews on YP and didn't believe them because they looked like plants. Everyone seemed to know his name (Enes) and all reviews were just too good. OMG (I love that phrase), he is real, and indeed as reported. I gave him my address and name and mentioned that he'd been to the address a year ago, and he paused and said, "You were here from Kansas and you were visiting your son." I said, "You keep notes?", and he said, "No, I remembered you, I promise. No notes." Anyway, Enes is a one-man show, and is for real. Once you try him, you'll not use anyone else. S.

We have used Enes for a number of years now. We use his service 10-15 times each year. He is always on time, always friendly, always helpful and his vehicle is always clean. Over the past 5 years we have not used another taxi services and expect you will find the same.
Enes is the most incredible cab service professional we have ever had the privilege of working with. If you are looking for someone who goes above and beyond, Enes is your guy. After a long series of unfortunate events, including the loss of a very necessary i.d. card for a departing flight, Enes drove an hour out of his way to another county to pick up my fiance in a pinch with my credit card on file prior to take off. Picked him up on time, raced him to the DMV to replace his i.d. which he paid for until my fiance could get his check cashed, then raced him all the way back to the airport an hour the other way. My fiance was without a phone, and in the circumstance, was even granted use of Enes's cell to keep in contact with me so I could stay informed. He dropped him off early for the flight, and even called me afterward to let me know he had arrived safely as I was home in another state. Enes, I cannot thank you enough. You were a lifesaver in a bad situation. Our silver lining. Thank you so much. If we are ever again in Boise, we are calling to take you out for dinner and drinks!
