Eat Cream of Jalapeño Soup by MKE

As most of the reviews reflect this is a spacious, solid, traditional Mexican restaurant close to the airport. Thankfully, it is also open Sunday and Sunday evening unlike some other places in the area.

The salsa is terrific ! As well as the hot chips they serve while waiting for your meal to arrive. The food was excellent; however, the dish was very hot but the food was only warm. The Sangria was weird.A glass of red wine with 3 maraschino cherries, slices of oranges and lime dropped into the glass. The guacamole is... More

Nothing special but food was good. Salsas were very good with chips. Carne asada tacos were well seasoned and cooked properly.

The building, is nothing really special to look at on the outside, but inside it is quaintly decorated Mexican style. I walk through the place and went outside to eat in a somewhat small brick walled courtyard .The plants were a nice touch. We were waited on immediately. The food and drinks were very good and the attentive waiter could... More

Don't pass up this restaurant just because it has no windows. We made that mistake for years! Food was excellent and we know our Mexican cuisine! Staff was excellent.

I had the very best nachos I have ever had in my LIFE here. I am a very picky eater, so I got beef and cheese nachos with sour cream. You know how you get a plate of nachos at a restaurant and the chips are soggy, or the meat isn't evenly distributed? This was NOT like that. These nachos... More

Some decent Mexican food, with both indoor and outdoor seating. The service was nice, and certainly the prices were very reasonable. It's not the most elegant of places, but it does the trick for a quick dinner or lunch,and it's especially convenient if you're staying at the many airport hotels that are close to it.

The food here was really quite good and the portions are large. Everything was properly cooked and the service was excellent as well. All the staff was polite and friendly. Definitely recommend trying this place out if you find yourself in Milwaukee near the airport.
