I often drive through Wausau and was looking for a healthy alternative. I ordered a la carte quesadilla and sides of guac and pico de gallo. I had to wait quite awhile but OH wow so yummy!. Lots of melted white cheddar in quesadilla. No free chips with carry out and skimpy sides but very tasty and... read more

It doesn't take long to whip up some Mexican dishes and this food seemed premade and not authentic in the slightest. I would not recommend this restaurant. Drinks were OK!

Nice place to eat - quick, pleasant service and good food! The restaurant is located conveniently off the highway. Environment is colorful and tasteful - they have a spacious patio and ample seating in a restaurant area and separate bar area as well.

Excellent shrimp chimichangas! Love that there is bell pepper and onion cooked in with the protein in the chimichangas! Beautiful restaurant & top notch service! My husband and I wish you had a restaurant in the Milwaukee area!!!

My husband and I have eaten here twice and have been pleasantly surprised both times.We ordered wine and whiskey so I can't comment on the margaritas, but the atmosphere is colorful and comfortable. Service was attentive without being overbearing. I ordered a burrito and it was very good. My husband had the chimichanga and really liked it. Prices are reasonable... More

We chose to eat here because they offered by one get one free margaritas on the night we were dining. As we stepped inside the restaurant, they didn't appear busy. It was decorated very nicely. We were greeted by a friendly staff and seated. As we went to place our beverage orders, we were told they were out of margarita... More

By far the best carnitas in town! Also 4 other pork dishes that are varied and delicious. Great service and good price. I have eaten here many times and still can't believe the value and quantity for my dollar.

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
