Been driving past for years, but never stopped until recently. It's a tucked away location and a well-kept local secret, but this place makes really good Mexican food for an affordable price. Typical Mexican fair available, but with unexpected proteins like duck, and various fresh seafood choices. Some unique dishes available too. The interior dining area is very small and... More

Poco Loco is an easy drive for those on the NE side of MKE and is easy for anyone in the Hwy 57/Green Bay Rd & Brown Deer area. Therefore it is a welcome spot with diversity. Kudos. The food is fresh and consistently good: duck tacos/ fish tacos, fresh fish dinners, excellent guacamole, gluten free choices, and so much... More

I should have known not to try Mexican in Wisconsin. I went in on a weeknight. Restaraunt was fairly busy. It started out with them having no chips. Evidently the fryer was broken. There was no real salsa to be had anyhow. Something in a squirt ketchup bottle they called salsa. They did have pico de gallo. I had chicken... More

Staying at the four points which is within walking distance and decided to give it a try. The food and service was good. They have a small outdoor patio which is nice to sit back and relax. Drink were a little expensive but the food prices were reasonable.

Wow, so my husband and I visited on a Monday evening. When we walked in I was so surprised that this is basically a tiny tiny bar that sales a very limited mexican menu. There was not any tables inside at all.. only a small bar with maybe a dozen stools. Outside there were about a dozen or less tables.... More

We stopped in for dinner on a Saturday night. Small place with bar only seating indoors. This will not work for a family or small kids. They do have outdoor seating but it was a bit cool and we did not have jackets so we sat at the bar. Bar stools were too tall for the bar. Not at all... More

While Poco Loco is a small location, an evening on their back patio with the freshest guacamole and salsa we have had in a long time made it an enjoyable surprise. The blue crab quesadilla was great.

Excellent steak fajitas, served Sunday & Monday only. Very tender and flavorful, served with great sides & guacamole. Always great food and service. Small, counter seating inside only. Nice patio seating, weather permitting.

Counter seating or outdoor seating. Lively place and very laid back. Love the fish tacos with the margaritas! Menu offers tacos, burritos and Caribbean fare with your choice of chicken, pork, lamb, fish, or beef. They also have pick-up available. A local favorite.
