Our favorite Mexican restaurant! Always great food and atmosphere. Definitely something for everybody. My daughter and I usually share the fajitas. And try not to fill up on chips and salsa. Their margaritas are great too.

We were travelling from West Bend to Madison and got hungry. Got really lucky to find this Mexican Restaurant. The "medium" margaritas were huge (and tasty.) We split a Chile Verde plate. This restaurant serves the best, best Chile Verde ever.

I go here a couple times a month. My favorite thing to order is the molcajete, but only if I'm hungry. Pretty good authentic tacos. Margaritas are great too, whether blended or on the rocks.

This is by far my favorite Mexican restaurant. The food is very authentic and good tasting. Everything seems fresh and served hot. The chips and salsa is also great. They make their chips in house.

There is outdoor seating but I'm not sure about pets. I would advice that you call and inquire.
