The food was ok, it tasted like sloppy joes inside a Taco shell. We shared the combination plate which had a bit of everything, with ground beef, was just ok. And the service was SO slow, don't go here unless you have lots if time. 20-30 min. to get our meal and it wasn't busy. I won't be back.

When we're in the mood for Mexican food in Wausau this is our go to spot. Friendly staff and the food is excellent. We're particularly fond of the steak fajitas.

Decent chips and very good salsa. Waiter was curt, but professional. Carnitas were excellent and huge portion. Chile Colorado was HOT ordered at 4/10 spiciness rating. Margaritas were overpriced for size. Would be adequate on 2-for-1 nights (Tues and Thurs?). Beans and rice were actually good, rather than just afterthoughts. Plates can be a bit plain-looking and lacking in garnish.... More

We were traveling from the northwoods back to Appleton and decided to stop in Wausau for dinner. Looked at the Mexican restaurants and chose this one because it actually mentioned "vegetarian" on the menu, and we are vegetarians. We were thrilled with our meal. The chips and salsa were excellent, lots of cilantro in the salsa. Got the vegetarian tostada,... More

Went with 24 people after skiing at Granite Peak. Service was excellent and the food matched the service. We will be making this an annual stop during our annual ski trip.

My wife and I went for a quick dinner one night. We were seated promptly. It was 2-for-1 margarita night, so we asked if this applied to non-alcoholic margaritas as well, and we were told it didn't. Slightly disappointed, we figured they maybe had them pre-mixed in large batches so we understood. We both ordered our entrees. When they came,... More
