We did not have to wait long, they try to accommodate all asap...there were 2 sits available but not together....they had one person move 1 seat over so we... More

First reason why we went to Poco Loco was it offered spicy food, someone visiting US from India looks forward to have. Second reason was it was close to the hotel I stayed at. And this restaurant did not disappoint at all. Seating inside on a rainy day, hotel was cosy. Limited indoor space is utilised creatively to create wonderful... More

Stopped in for the first time for the dinner and although the atmosphere seemed fun and friendly the food was so so. We sat outdoors because the bar area was too cold and started with chips and salsa. I never got the hot sauce for the salsa and found it very difficult to dip chips in the salsa from a... More

We stopped for lunch. We sat outside. The weather was nice, butv the service left a lot to be desired. My husband asked for mire chips, which never came. The waitress refilled our drinks and brought me the wrong drink. Tried to get her attention, but that didn't work. I understand that she had the patio by herself, but the... More

This place is extremely unique, and a must-go-to restaurant if you are in the area and love authentic Mexican food. The setting is very unique, and features a patio with a bar-like indoor seating area. If you have the chance, definitely sit outside as it elevates your experience. The customer service here was good and the owner was extremely friendly.... More

I frequent this spot almost weekly for carry out or eating in. Really like the outside patio enclosed by evergreens. Fresh guacamole and grilled meats. Corn shells available for wheat intolerant. Of course the margaritas are very good.

Good Mexican food carefully prepared as you enjoy a Mexican beer or margarita. Prices are reasonable and the crowd is friendly.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Brown Deer (we eat here at least once a month). The food is consistently good - especially the fish tacos. The chicken, steak, and lamb tacos are delicious as well. The outdoor patio is really nice in the summer, and anything on special is usually good. The only complaint I would have... More

Excellent food! Very fresh and authentic dishes. Small dining area (just two large bar areas), but excellent dishes. The salsa, guacamole and margaritas were delicious. We also had the fish tacos which were perfect. Big gem in a small little space.
