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

There were at least 10 other options listed as lunch specials... 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
