“Great food, our server kept disappearing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

The food was good.The margaritas are great. The service left something to be desired. My husband and I got the fajitas plate for 2. The fajitas were great and there was so much food. We ate 6 fajitas between the 2 of us for dinner and brought the leftovers home. Once home, we made another 8 fajitas with the leftovers. The quantity of food was well worth it and the food tasted great. Our service experience was horrible. We couldn't seem to catch our server to place our food order, to request more sour cream, to get more drinks, and on and on. We finally had to start asking at the hostess stand for our server because we never saw her. I hope our negative experience with the service was an isolated event. So overall, great food, just don't be in a hurry or be starving and want to eat right away.

“Take out order”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

We picked up a take out order for a family dinner at a local motel. Three of us need to eat gluten free. The staff knew about gluten free and made sure everything we ordered was safe to eat. The food was very good and good portions.

“Great Mexican Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Looking for someplace to have lunch this week with co-workers in Minocqua. I happened to notice this restaurant and the number of vehicles in the parking lot there. We decided to check it out and were very pleased with the food, margaritas, and service. I highly recommend this restaurant. I just wish it wasn't four hours from my home!
