Not Tex-Mex, Wis-Mex!

Nice atmosphere, kind of like a large Chipotle's location. But this is not a place for those on a budget. Chips and salsa are not free, but cost $4. Margaritas were the highlight, not too sweet and containing a generous glassful (about $9 each). But entrees (we ordered enchiladas and burritos... read more

Chips- never paid for them anywhere, so we loaded the plates numerous times.Food did not come out piping hot like it should, but quality was good, not great, tasty... More

Solid food, great service, but pricey for the product. Fish tacos had very little fish, and you only get two for $9. Salsa, which used to be very good, seemed bland. Dining room is comfortable, has a neighborhood vibe, but just can't justify the $45 tab for a family of four.

Great food as usual. I had the enchiladas and they yummy. My partner has a taco salad and it too was well made and tasty. My only complaint is that corn chips do not come with the meal and the ones you buy with salsa are sprinkled with a power that is terrible and this time was salty as well.... More

Fresh, creative recipes for some mouth watering Mexican food. Clean and nicely presented interiors. A great neighborhood destination. One of three of their local venues.

Went here with my daughter, we were both craving Mexican. It was late afternoon on a Thursday, and not at all crowded. I had the burrito bowl, which was very good. It was not a stand out meal, but definitely cured the craving :)

Parents and kids tend to be there before 6:30 and then it's more adults after that, so it's both kid-friendly and a fun hangout if you're meeting friends, depending on your preference. The brightly painted walls and casual atmosphere make this a fun and welcoming place. There is usually ample free parking on the residential streets behind the block. You... More

I had the chicken burrito bowl and it was hot nasty mess!! The rice was hard, the beans cold and the chicken tasted like it was boiled. Maybe it was. UGH!

Somebody in the kitchen is paying attention at Pasqual's on Monroe. The three quesadillas were crisp on the outside, easy to pick up and had enough ingredients (including cilantro) in the filling to be interesting. There are four choices of filling. Mexican Coke is available, a little treat for us Nortenos. As for the bar, my classic Margarita was well-balanced... More

My friends and I went to Pasqual's for dinner on Friday. The six of us were seated right away by a very nice hostess. We were surprised to find out that we had to pay for chips, but they were constantly refilled throughout the meal. The food was good, not great, but the service was very good. Our waiter was...
