We recently discovered Cinco de Mayo which is near our summer home. I can only say that I wish we had gone there sooner than we did. The salsa has a nice kick (with continual refills of salsa and chips), the margaritas are nicely blended and the food is terrific. In addition, the folks that run the restaurant are delightful....very... More

This is a good Mexican restaurant with reasonable prices. Nothing special about ambiance but the food and service is very good. Portion size is reasonable. A good place for families with children.

We ate dinner at the Cinco de Mayo restaurant the first weekend in September when we stayed in Mauston overnight. It was fantastic! I'm glad we ignored the couple bad reviews listed here. The restaurant was beautiful, they had recently got all new booths and tables there that were hand carved and painted in Guadalajara and imported just for the... More

Fajitas were a bit dry and chewy. Hot house tomatoes in Sept were disappointing. Tamale and chili rellano had good flavor. Would try it again if I was a locale. Would not be a high priority for a traveling re-do. Reasonable prices. Friendly staff.

Very good selection on the menu- both authentic and 'American' meals. Order the El Paso order authentic pork/corn tortilla/cilantro and onion tacos, I'm addicted. Good and good atmosphere.

Carnitas and Carne Asada were excellent. Service was spotty but entertaining, knowing how to speak a little Spanish will help.

Ordered a copmbo plate and when it came it was all combined into one gooey mess. Worst Mexican food I have ever had.

We had a vacation rental home on Castle Rock Lake for over three years before we found this hidden gem when we needed to go to the Ace Hardware store across the parking lot. The food is authentic AND delicious. Portions are good, and prices are great, especially at lunch time. Excellent, tasty, LARGE margaritas. I judge my Mexican restaurants... More

Charged for chips and salsa, top shelf margs when we ordered regular, and charged us for refills that were on her. Food was mediocre.
