Great beans rice and traditional food. If you are looking for generic Chi Chis or Acapulco style Mexican food -- this not not the place to go. They have great home made recipes and the owners run the place. 'Very affordable as well.

We go here to eat often. The prices are reasonable and food portions are generous. Chips and salsa are provided while you wait for your food.

The meals here are always consistently great. It's exactly what you expect from a Mexican restaurant so you aren't in for any surprises. The service is always fast and the restaurant is authentically decorated. Not to mention it is priced fairly. It's a staple in River Falls!

I am a suckered for Mexican. Mariachi Loco is one block from my office on the UWRF campus. I love going there for lunch. But I always eat way too many chips.

If your looking for Mexican food in town this is your typical Mexican restaurant. Good food and service, and you can't complain with the complimentary chips and salsa.

Love being able to walk to this destination and having your food arrive hot and fast. Service has always been very good, sometimes a rarity in the restaurant business.
