Better than expected

This place was better than I expected. Our waiter was great. Our drinks and chips and salsa were replaced in a timely manner. A magician performed a small card trick show for us as we waited for our food. Many of us had the "feature dinner" It was excellent! I thought the food was very good... read more

Service was good. That's about it. The prices were very high for the quantity or quality received. Food had little taste. Example: Salsa that came with the chips was cold, like out of a jar, and very little taste. Not fresh at all. Had the enchiladas with shrimp. Very few shrimp (counted 4 total -- all cut up) for a...

Ok, so we live in an area with a large Mexican population and authentic restaurants. This restaurant charged premium prices for average food (being generous). The chips came out cold, the salsa was unremarkable. I had the taco salad which was nothing special either.

We stopped at Mexicali Rose because we have been wanted to try it from previous trips to The Dells. It was a complete disappointed. You can expect the rice and beans to be pre-packed or from a can. Sadly even the lettuces had the packed flavored. I had the ‘Camarones a la Diabla’ ($15) and they were saturated with Colby... More

We've heard great things about this restaurant, so my husband and I were anxious to check it out. It was our first and last visit! The chips were not fresh, but out of a bag. The salsa was bland and came from a can or jar. Most of the food was canned/jar as well. For the price it was NOT... More

I won't say it was the best Mexican restaurant I have ever been to, but it was better than average. I had the Chile Rellenos and tamales. We also had the guacamole and that was delicious. My husband had the steak/chicken fajitas which he enjoyed. Good prices for the Dells, fast service and going during happy hour was nice for... More

Great food. Great service. From entering the restaurant, to the wait, to being seated- quick and wonderful. Beautiful view and it was a nice time. Prices aren't bad either. I would definitely return.

This restaurant was one which we didn't intend to go to, but as we had about an hour to wait for our Dells Boat Tour, and this was also the place for the dock's bathrooms (yes, really), we decided to grab an early dinner here. It turned out to be a good choice. Given the time of year (early October)... More

Since Mexicali Rose was right at the docks, where you leave and return from the Lower Dells Boat Tours, we decided to rest and eat there. Very Good Choice. It was a slow time for them but the waiter seemed to be the kind that would have taken good care of us, not matter how busy it might have been.... More

very cordial and accommodating. we had plans to take the lower Dells boat trip and while waiting we walked next door for a margarita. bartender(maybe manager) was very sweet and when we asked if we could sit outside (actually closed for the coolness of the weather) she was willing to accommodate us. We stopped back after the trip for some... More
