Not sure why they call themselves a Mexican restaurant. I had nachos and husband had an enchilada. I've had much better nachos at a little league game. My husband enchilada was deep fried and had no enchilada sauce. There were also a ton of flies and they only take cash or check, no cards.

This place was completely remodeled a year or two ago and is always nice a clean with a friendly staff. The taco or enchilada is always a good option, but don't order too much because the portions are huge!

First time we've been there since the remodel. Place looked clean. We couldn't figure out why it is just so noisy though. (Compared to other places of equal size,etc.) It was incredibly noisy. Our food was good, at a good price. Downside is, it took forever to arrive. We waited a long time, as did other guests. The service was... More

This is the best food that you could ever ask for. Niece of the old owner i would say she did a good job by having it up in running. People might not like it, then thats them, if they want fast service then go to Mc Donald's, if you want the best food you have to be patient, they... More

We've heard we had to go here for the tacos...so we gave it a go. We started with a couple of starters and drinks. Obie's has a full bar and offers sodas by the can. The starters are the fried variety from cheese balls to breaded mushrooms with everything in between. Since we were there for tacos, the whole party... More

My family went into Obie's this past weekend on our way home from Dubuque. We heard good things about the tacos so we thought we'd give it a try. The owner's wife took our orders and was VERY unfriendly. When we asked politely for her to turn up the jukebox (the sound was off) that we inserted $5 into, she... More
