Service was attentive without being overbearing. I ordered a burrito and it was very good. My... read 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

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.
