The portions were huge but the food was a bit bland. I would probably try it again but it wouldn't be my 1st choice.

Horrible food and drink. I'd rather eat at a Taco Bell. It's a shame because Minocqua could really do with a good authentic Mexican restaurant too. I wouldn't go back if it was a free meal. Margarita didn't even get finished, a waste of tequila.

Really it the spot after a long day hiking. Quick service and nice to sit outside. You are in the parking lot in effect. But still was nice to have a breeze. Servers are friendly and prompt. I would go back.
