May sound like a cheezy way to judge a Mexican restaurant but I really appreciate quality chips and a variety of salsa's at the table. Not only is that the best ive had but their margaritas are second to no one and any of their seafood dishes blow away the competition. Very clean and atmosphere is very authentic. When in... More

The food was very good, free chips & salsa, quick service (we were there at 3:30 P.M.), clean restaurant. A little on the pricey end, but right across from the Milwaukee Airport. Would definitely go again.

We were looking for something light and wanted to visit a place we've never been. The menu is diversified, something for everyone. We got exactly what we wanted, a tasty light and reasonably priced lunch in a comfortable atmosphere. The server was unfamiliar with the menu fortunately the hostess came by and put us in the right direction n

I eat at Mexican restaurants A LOT. This is one of the best. I'm lucky enough to live in Milwaukee so I can eat here often, and this is the restaurant I judge all others in other cities by. From the friendly greeting and attentive service on, to the slightly quirky interior (kinda Alpine-Mexican?) to the live music on Wednesday... More

The bartender was on point, perfect service. There were regular customers coming in and everyone was very freindly. Very nice and relaxing dinner. 100% RECOMMEND the Steak Fajitas and the Cucumber Basil Margarita...

We love Mexican food but found this restaurant to be a disappointment. Chips and salsa were good but the meal was not. I had pork enchiladas with big pieces of tasteless pork and the refried beans were also tasteless and very soupy. The rice was terrible.

I was sold this meal as a quality steak that was very tender. It was somewhat tender, but fat usually is. If this is a 16oz steak, then nearly HALF of it is fat and grizzle. NO taste at all to the meat. $20 for that is theft. I will never eat there again if at all possible. The rest... More

Service was great, food was plentiful and delicious. The bar did NOT have Jose Quervo however... which I found odd. The tequilia they did have was fine nonetheless. Right next to Motel 6 and Super 8 MKE airport location.

Our group had 9 people, including 3 children. We ordered a variety of different entrees. Service was very good, and the food arrived in a timely manner and all at the same time. Everyone said their meals were excellent and the portions were large. The menu items reflect authentic meals that are not often found in Mexican restaurants. I highly... More

If the weather is nice, you need to sit outside on the patio. Nice music and a great, cozy feel. The wait staff was attentive and very gracious. Food was good and served quickly (as usuall). A+ all around experience.
