The food here is always good. The service is quick so it's a good place to go if you are in a hurry. The prices are very reasonable.

I have been to this place several times for a large group lunch. The staff is very accommodating and friendly with a big group. The food is excellent!! The atmosphere is fun and perfect to enjoy great food and friends. I love the homemade chips and salsa they bring you before you order! The white cheese dip is yummy too!... More

My dad treated my wife and I to a lunch after we had just arrived from the airport. The staff was friendly. Despite how busy they were, we got seated immediately and had drinks, chips and salsa within 3 minutes. The food arrived quickly, it was very tasty and they were bigger portions than we expected for the price. Very... More

We stopped here for lunch while passing through Wausau. It was clean and cute inside. The complimentary chips and salsa were good. I ordered a chicken chimichanga off of the lunch menu. The food was brought out quickly and was very fresh. I could tell it hadn't been under the heat lamp like other places may do. The portion size... More

This place gets it's Mexican food from the same food place as all the other Mexican Restaurants you eat at. It's good and tasty! The chips are free. Nice atmosphere.

My favorite Mexican food is usually found at a hole-in-the wall place, no frills, run by a family speaking Spanish. The inviting decor at this place looked too good to expect the food to match. My fears were unfounded. Everything here was WONDERFUL. The warm complementary chips tasted homemade, and the salsa had just enough bite for me to love... More

Every other place Americanizes the food-not here. Keep it authentic-those who love it will come. If they are related to the one in Minocqua that is too bad as that one is nothing like the one here in Wausau. Lots of parking. Nice wait staff. Even when busy you do not wait long.
