A little family owned business in the heart of Bay View. My favorites to order are the steak tacos and the horchata. BEST horchata in town!

We used to live in Bay View, so GTO was our fave Mexican place for authentic, cheap, and amazing steak tacos (other menu items are great too). We now live 30min away but will drive for our tacos. The service is incredibly slow and inattentive most of the time, BUT as soon as you sink your teeth into their steak... More

To me, chimichanga always sounds like a cheer. I was cheered by my dinner choice of a pair with ground beef over my usual order of chicken enchiladas. The toasty dough enclosed goodly portions of nicely-spiced meat. A small, bright place, Guanajuato’s is just south of the increasingly popular Lincoln-Kinnickinnic-Howell triangle; parking south of it on Howell is your best... More

I love this little restaurant, I have eaten at Guanajuato's for breakfast, lunch and dinner and I have never been disappointed. On my last visit, I had one of the lunch specials which was a cheese filled chile relleno served with rice and beans. My companion had chicken flautas. There were at least 10 other options listed as lunch specials... More

This is a great little Mexican restaurant. It's become our go-to spot now that we live in Bay View. I haven't tried a lot on the menu, because the tacos are great and a pretty good deal. My wife has had a few other items, and everything has been pretty tasty. Nice little patio you wouldn't know was there, and... More

This is some of the most real and accessible Mexican food in the Milwaukee area. Staff was down to earth but also quick, as expected.

My wife and I went to GTO upon recommendation from our neighbor after we moved into the area. I "only" gave it a 5 star because Yelp wouldn't let me give them 12 stars. Their house salsa is SO good. I could eat the salsa without anything else it is so tasty. The salsa verde is amazing. We LOVED our... More

Really great--authentic mexican food. Always a great amount for the price, and the newly remodeled restaurant is very nice feeling--bight and welcoming.

They moved down the block and nothing has changed. The food is the best in the city! Absolutely one of the best restaurants in Milwaukee. Super friendly service and the portions are big!
