“Tex-Mex at its Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

We dined at Panchos and Lefty's in mid afternoon after a tour of the Minhaus Brewery. We shared a Grilled Chicken Quesadilla...and had a piece left over to take back with us. We also had an order of their special Deviled Eggs. Both items were excellent! Service was just right. Our waitress checked back several times to make sure all was all right...and it definitely was! If we were ever to return to the area, we would eat there again.

“Who knew?!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Wow, who knew that you could get BBQ like this in Wisconsin? We didn't until we stopped in for lunch after a tour at Minahs. The smell of smoked meat tantalizes you before you even step in the door. We were told there would be a 20 minute wait and they took our cell phone so we could continue browsing around the square, but actually got called back within 10 minutes. ( It's a very small space with a couple tables outside for dining). OH, MY! The food was amazing! 3 of us ordered the sampler platter with ribs, brisket and pulled pork and mac-n-cheese. All of it was excellent. The brisket was tender and flavorful, the pork was smokey and juicy, the ribs were meaty and tender. The mac-n-cheese was full of bacon and peppers and was out of this world! They serve 3 sauces, house, Kansas City style and a Carolina style. All were delicious. Each bite I took, I thought " this is my favorite", then I'd take another bite and think "no, this is!" Leftovers the next day were just as good. Beer was cold and staff was great! We will be back!!!

“Glad We Stopped”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We had heard about this restaurant and agree that it has excellent food. They smoke their own meat on the premises so the smell is tantalizing and divine. Husband had a marinated chicken burrito and loved every bite. I ate half of my bratwurst and sauerkraut burrito and loved every bite. It was chock full of brat. I had the remaining half the next day for lunch, Can't wait to go back to try a barbecued pulled pork sandwich. The sandwiches looked wonderful as they were delivered to surrounding tables. They also serve homemade tortilla chips and homemade salsa to accompany the burritos and sandwiches. Yum.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Excellent homemade meal. Very busy but quite efficient; Had the BBQ sampler which was enough food for 2. Sauces tasty and as good as the Memphis style BBQ. Waitress very attentive despite being very busy. Worth the drive and will return; Cash only which may hinder some
