My husband and I drove on a Friday night to McGregor on the Mississippi River, from Decorah, 45 miles west. McGregor is a funky river town reminiscent of Galena, Illinois, but less polished, with several antique stores and historic buildings dating from 1854 on; it seems older than our town with its 1890s Victorian buildings. We walked around the downtown and noted several new restaurants and bars, including a brewpub. Latino's is housed in an 1899 hotel building; the original wood and tile floors slant with age. The restaurant surrounds a huge bar with stools, and there are Mexican touches, such as sombreros. Because the owner is Peruvian, a few Peruvian dishes are offered as well as typical Mexican fare. We enjoyed the excellent tortilla chips and spicy salsa and a sweet strawberry margarita before the meals of chicken and Peruvian beef fajitas arrived. Both came with a small amount of rice with corn, chopped lettuce, refried beans, and a half slice of tomato, as well as flour tortillas. The chicken fajita was tasty, charred perfectly with onions and green peppers and cheese, sizzling hot. My husband licked his plate clean, and he is a great cook. Latino's has more character than our local Mexican restaurant.

Some menu items were what you would expect. However, there were some very unusual ones as well. We had a garlic shrimp dish and very spicy Peruvian beef dish. Both were superb. What a great find in a small town. I wish we had one here in Minneapolis.

There was a group of us (35) at this restaurant. they had reserved a room for us so we could all be together. The wait staff was wonderful as was the owner. The food was good and plentiful and the prices were reasonable.

Though more Peruvian than Mexican, this restaurant is really quite wonderful. Paco is excellent at staying on top of the customers making sure they are satisfied with both food and drink. However, the one waitress there is horrible and often likes to engage customers in useless and utterly boring conversations about her life. Best hope you get Paco. If you dine in, free tortilla chips and salsa are delivered to your table. I normally stick with #24, the fajita quesadilla, #51, the fajita burrito, or just plain old chicken fajitas. The atmosphere is really quite wonderful.

The only thing Mexican about this place was the flag hanging on the wall. Drink coasters on the table looked to have been used most of the summer. And by no means is this a fast food joint. After waiting for almost 45 minutes for our order, what a disappointment. The 4 of us each had a different dish. And out of 4, none was very good at all. Very bland, tasteless, and very greasy. And our waitress seemed intent on getting in on our table conversation. Maybe she should have gone back to help the cook. But, we were the only people in the place. So, if you want good Mexican food, go elsewhere. If want anything good, go elsewhere.
