Our server was amazing! Super professional and attentive. Food was excellent! Their homemade sangria is right on the money! If I lived here this would be a go to spot.

We drove by this place and thought why not? Boy were we surprised. Having dined in Mexico and at any of the numerous Mexican restaurants in Milwaukee this restaurant outshines them all. I tasted flavors and complexities previously unknown. I would return here for sure and wish this place was in Milwaukee. This is no tex-mex. This is the real... More

I dined here recently after having a massage in the area. The decor is Amazing--including the bathrooms. I felt like I was back in Central America--with the beautiful decor as well as the food! I enjoyed a fajita and a margarita. The food and service were both excellent! And I had some lovely leftovers.

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.
