Tellos is another very good place in Port. Their portion sizes are somewhat large. The food quality is very good as is the service level. The Wisconsin Burrito is a monster, and a very good menu choice. Their Gyros are very good as are their burgers. Really, can't go wrong with anything on their menu.

My wife and I frequent Tellos often enough to know that this a charming cafe/bar for which I would state specializes in Mexican food more than anything else. Having said that, my wife has had breakfast here many times and she loves their omeletes ... but the burgers at lunch are below average. Shame on me for not praising this... More

The complimentary homemade seasoned chips and salsa were far superior than others. My husband tried the gyro. Unconventional, yet over the top! My pork enchiladas are my new comfort food. Just the right amount of meat, cheese, sauce & spice. The guacamole was very fresh & delicious. The rice was not the typical dried, chewy & day old side dish.... More

Tello's calls itself a Green restaurant, but it's a little bit of everything. If you're part of a group and can't decide what type of food you want, this may be the place. The menu has Mexican burritos, tacos and everything else Mexican, it has Gyros and Greek salad, and Chicken Souvlaki, it has Crepes, Belgian waffles and eggs for... More

Good gyros & a good burrito too - a bit of an odd combination but we just wanted a quick lunch & this hit the spot.

Tello's is great. A Mexican/Greek/American restaurant with excellent breakfast, lunch and dinners. Outstanding service and drinks too.

I LOVE ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Tello's Grill and Cafe Just discovered an amazing family owned Mexican restaurant in a wholly earthy-crunchy venue. The chips and salsa/free. Chips arrive warm. Chips/not greasy. Wait staff (v. familiar-seeming and laid back) recognized and brought hungry kids food first. Chicken fingers/not greasy. Nothing greasy. Fresh fruit that was exactly that and plentiful. I had chicken fajitas... More

My husband and I were looking at cars, the dealer in Saukville suggested this place for lunch. From the signs outside I thought it was a Greek restaurant, but one look at the menu says Mexican. I did order a more Greek dish, because I sort of had the idea I was getting Greek. My husband ordered Mexican. Although my... More

Excellent, authentic Mexican food at reasonable prices! I can't pass up their delectable chimichangas; my mom had their spectacular Mexican omelette; my sister in law & brother in law delish enchiladas;... More

It's a fun atmosphere but the food is nasty. I'm from the south so I'm used to real, authentic Mexican. This is not that. The cheese dip taste like powdered cheese from a pouch...pretty sure it is because it's grainy. The beef and chicken in the dishes don't have much spice or flavor. Stick to the chicken strips or hamburger... More
