Authentic Mexican dishes

Very authentic Mexican dishes. I had the red chicken enchiladas and they were delicious. Rice and beans tasted delicious! My buddies had chicken and beef quesadillas and said they were delicious as well.

I'll admit that I haven't been to many Mexican restaurants in Milwaukee area, but this one was very good. I would return there easily. It is not the closest to my home, but for good food, who don't travel a little bit. A small seating area, which fills up quickly, is what greeted us. There were waves of people that... More

You will not find better Mexican food in this city, and certainly not for the price. I have eaten at GTO numerous times & never been disappointed. Very good chips and salsa with a homemade taste, excellent margaritas, large portions, and fantastic food. While there are many other options in town, from the popular authentic types like Botanas or La... More

We have tried this restaurant both for lunch and dinner, and we were very pleased both times! Staff is very friendly, and food is very good! Margaritas are delicious too! They recently moved one building south, and while it is not a large restaurant, the menu is extensive! They are known for their steak tacos, and they are excellent! I... More

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
