We had lunch here on a Sunday afternoon and it was not very busy due to the packer game. The chips came out hot and fresh. The salsa is very bland like plain tomato no seasoning. With the addition of salt, pepper and alot of hot sauce it was much better, I'm more about the cheese dip anyway. I ordered... More

These folks that raved about the food must be lucky or crazy...maybe both. I got food poisoning there. Plus, unbeknownst to me another friend ate there at an earlier date and got sick as well. DON'T EAT HERE UNLESS YOU DON'T MIND SITTING ON THE CRAPPER ALL NIGHT!!!

Visited this restaurant with some co-workers recently. Food and service was very good. Our only complaint was we thought the salsa served with the chips could have been more "fresh" tasting. I ordered the fish tacos, which was the special that night, and I thought they were fabulous! We each had a different flavor margarita and those were great too.... More

We met a couple of my brothers at this cute place for lunch on a cold and rainy day. We were seated right away, our order was taken and our food arrived within a few minutes. Mexican music playing over the PA system could have been a little softer, as it was hard to have a conversation. The food was... More

The cuisine of this restaurant is so pleasing -- very colorful and bright, nice architectural details, really cheerful and festive. The food was also quite good. I liked the salsa served with the warm, fresh chips. It was fresh and tasty but not 'hot' (which we don't like, since it continues to heat up your mouth compounding as you eat... More

Delicious food, fast service, clean. It was wonderful! We had fish taco's and beef burritos. The only thing I would like to see improved is the salsa was bland. We will definitely go again!

This was our first visit to El Mez, after many years of coming to Minocqua. The food was disappointing. The chips and salsa were nothing special. My husband ordered the guacamole, and it didn't improve the chips and salsa situation. In fact, it made that part of the meal that much more disappointing. A poorly made, but homemade guacamole would... More
