I've been to this restaurant a few times to make sure I just wasn't there on a bad night. I like the location because it is very close to my home. The food is more "American/Mexican" than Mexican. It is disappointingly high priced. I'd not recommend it.

Our family of three eats at a lot of Mexican restaurants, most of them once. We each enjoyed our entrees here enough that we will be back. Service was slow because we arrived before 5:00 pm (when the regular wait staff arrives) but the food came quickly. The corn on the cob was a fun and unusual appetizer.

Went to dinner with our family. We go to Puerto Vallarta for the winter so I'm never excited to eat Mexican food here in Milwaukee. I was pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent, beer prices very reasonable, wait staff very attentive and tableside Guacamole made to your taste was delicious, you get to pick what you want in it. Will... More

I need to say this after my visit! The Enchilada Monterrey was the worst meal I've ever had and mostly it was the worst waste of money I've spent in all of my 55 yrs.! The menu description for the enchilada Monterrey $16.99 sounds awesome BUT trust me, it was far from awesome! It looked like left over tiny pieces... More

We met a group for dinner on a Friday night. My husband and I arrived much earlier than the rest of the group and headed to the bar for a drink. We each ordered a margarita and placed a large fill on the bar to pay for the drinks. Others in our party started to arrive about 40 minutes later... More

Craving table side guacamole after a long day so I did a quick Yelp search and folks where raving about his place! It's been a while since I've had some great guacamole, and this place satisfied my craving. The portions where absolutely huge, I just wish they supplied more than 4 tortillas for the huge plate I had. - Texas... More

we visited this restaurant based on reviews found on trip advisor, as well as the location. The décor is very fitting for the type of food served. I had a combo platter, they put the same sauce on everything " which was good" but everything tasted the same. My son ordered a chicken chimi. he loved it said the sauce... More

This is the best place to get tableside guac. It is to die for. They make it exactly the way that you want it. I go during happy hour so the margarita's are cheaper. In addition, they try new margarita's out and you can buy one at minimal cost.

You can order the usual fare here - tacos, enchiladas, chimichangas - but don't! Try an item that you never heard of before. I had Chicken Reynosa and it was OUTSTANDING! Hubby kept ignoring his Fajitas (which were great) for mine. The unique margaritas were great too. I had a jalapeno, cilantro dring that was great. Be adventurous! Service was... More

Pleasant and typical Mexican restaurant atmosphere. Very good chips and excellent salsa. I knew I was going to do all right. Some wait staff do not speak English. I ordered a cheese chili relleno and black beans. (The only vegetarian beans they have). The beans were very tasty, the rice was excellent and the chip relleno a had a very... More
