My wife and were wondering how long this restaurant would last. The food was very good - not the usual Mexican fare, but apparently not enough people tried it. Perhaps it was he "Dairy Queen" outward appearance or the location; either way, another good restaurant fails. Hope the owner can have success at another time and place.

I want to know what happened to them. They haven't been open for some time. Everyone that visited Milwaukee I took to this restaurant. They loved it, too! I am sad to see them not open. The owners were so nice. The food was excellent. I went there at least every other week. Wow. Miss you guys and hope everything... More

We went for dinner tonight, 20 March, to find the restaurant closed. R.I.P. Revolucion.....We'll miss the not-so-salty chips, the excellent guacamole, and the generally tasty food as well as the warm atmosphere. Prices were a bit high for Mexican fare...was that the cause of their demise? Or was it the fact that the building screamed 'I was a Dairy Queen'... More

A place for delicious and authentic Mexican food and the Molcajete is superb. Be careful not to touch the molcajete which keeps the fajita ingredients warm. The restaurant is in a former Dairy Queen and do not let that bother you or let you drive by. Once you go inside the interior has been remodeled to give it a flavor... More

We really enjoyed the food at Revolucion. Some of their offerings have flavors I have not seen at other Mexican restaurants. I had the tostaditas (think that is what they called them) sampler. Had potatoes, mango salsa, something else, and a hint of heat. Another sample was bbqd something with onions and avocado. Yummy. Instead of feeling like the usual... More

We have dined at Revolucion at least a half a dozen times in the last year and have never been disappointed. The chicken tinga de pollo and steak fajitas are my favorites. Also the Senoritas are delicious (combination of margarita and sangria). Everyone should try out Revolucion!

Revolucion has fresh and creatively-tasty Mexican dishes. They routinely design a topical guac. and I appreciate that I can get that with jicama sticks! Absolutely love the Mexican breakfast selections-wonderful food at a great price! Stop once and I think you'll be hooked! We have eaten here many times and have always been pleased with any selection we tried!

The location is not trendy one, but who cares? Those that shrug it off are missing a major culinary treat that goes WAY beyond the standard USA-Mexican fare of even the best of the pack of the National Ave. area spots. How about duck or lamb dishes? Both are to die for. The fish dishes too. Appetizers and deserts are... More

My husband and I had lunch at Revolucion with another couple. The food is far from standard "Mexican Restaurant" fare. We asked our waitress for specific recommendations, like "which filling should I add to this torta?" and followed many of her suggestions. Everything was tasty, fresh, and very reasonably priced. We'll be back.
