This place is a regular visit for us. I've always loved their smokey salsa that is complimentary with chips, however, recently I feel they've changed it. It's watery now. Boo. Food is good and service is prompt and courteous.

Excellent Mexican restaurant off 41 a few miles. Worth it! Hot chips, homemade salsa and Chimichangas were great! Enchiladas had many sauce options. Super cold Coronas to boot... Amazing decor inside and lots of outdoor seating. Priced well.

My son and I stopped for a quick lunch. Thirty-five minutes in and out. Portions were okay for the price, maybe on the light side. Service was good. My son had 2 gr beef enchilada which he said was very good. I am vegan so I ordered 2 spinach enchiladas with red sauce, instead of cheese sauce which usually comes... More

Best Mexican food in the Germantown/Menomonee Falls area. Fair prices and a good selection of Mexican beers. Quick service once you are seated. Small bar area but there is plenty of dining sitting in the front and back rooms. Outdoor seating as well. Worth the trip!

This place actually has mixed reviews and I was actually confused to try it or not. But I received a groupon coupon for it so thought of trying it. Ambience was OK. Front Desk greeted us nicely and the server was also polite. Good Service and Food was Tasty. Will visit again for sure even if I do not get... More

Went there with a group of friends on a Saturday evening. Very busy place. It got pretty tight in there but we were a group of 9. They have a large outdoor space which looked nice but it was too cold the day we went. The food was good and plenty big portions. Little on the pricey side but an... More

It would be nice if the "super" nachos came with the basics...you know salsa, guac, sour cream. They used to at least come with sour cream, but the menu changed, and now it's just meat, beans, cheese, and jalapeños. Really? My husband and I continue to order takeout because it's the closest place if we want Mexican, but we really... More

Met a friend for drinks after work which turns into an early dinner. Food was average, service was slow and we were one of only a few customers in the place.

Our party of four arrived just in time for our 7:30 pm reservation on a chilly Saturday night to find the restaurant anything but busy. Yes, there were diners, but over half the tables throughout the expansive facility were empty. This was quite a departure from our many experiences in the early 2000's, when it was standing room only on... More
