Great food, good price. Love the huaraches and the margheritas on the rocks. Restaurant is cozy and relaxing.

We went for a late lunch today as we have driven by many times, and stopped spur of the moment. Parking is very sparse, but we snagged a space. The interior is cute but nothing special. The staff was nice and they were very casual and polite. You can tell they all pitch in together. We both had Chile Rellanjos,... More

We meet some friends here for a Sunday lunch every 6 to 8 months and have never been disappointed. Their menu is massive so be prepared to peruse it. Portions are extremely large with tasty beans and rice. There are usually 5 of us altogether and everyone has their favorite. Seems as though we always order the same thing because... More

It's a small place but they have great food. We drive in from Waukesha about once a week. I love the tacos! And the tostadas are excellent!

Went here recently and was pleasantly surprised. The place is small and quaint . The service was excellent, starting with Chips and a tasty fresh salsa. The house margarita was adequate for the low price. ALL of the food being served looked excellent and of great portions. Our party of three tried the Chicken Enchiladas ( Excellent), The Beef Burrito... More

We eat here often and will always go back when we are looking for good Mexican food on a budget. They have a item that is a tray of 6 or 7 types of meat served right on the grill. EXCELLENT. The other items are great too. The drinks are strong but cheap and 1 margarita for $5 will definitely... More

We have lived in MKE for 9 months via Texas and Arizona- and after finding Guanajuanto's I can FINALLY say we have found our Mexican food home. Crispy thin chips, fresh salsa (great flavor, not necessarily heat) and the guacamole and quest fundido (fresh, salty...try it w the chorizo) are a must. Excellent thin,small fresh tortillas. Cozy hole in the... More

It's a very small place and when we went it was poorly lit. It has the possibility for a lot of natural light but when it's cloudy and rainy you need to turn on the lights. Food was good, but nothing that would have me running back any time soon. We went with out family 3 kids and 2 adults,... More

Seriously good Mexican food, probably the best I've had in Milwaukee. This is a popular place, so I recommend going on an off hour to avoid waiting in the somewhat cramped space. The tamales, horchata, rice & beans, and pina coladas are superb. The staff is awesome. The bartender had 'extra' pina colada mixture and topped off our drinks while... More
