“Great Mexican in Riverwest area of Milwaukee”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

While Cafe Corazon does not look like much from the outside, you're here for the food and drink, both of which are outstanding! I would recommend the Taco Truck Taco Plate which comes with 3 soft corn tacos with your choice of filling, rice and your choice of beans. It was nice that you could have a different filling in each of the tacos. Also the black beans were a great option as well. Be sure to get the chips and guacamole to start and try the Corazon margarita and you'll be enjoying one of the best Mexican meals you've had in a long time!

“Simply Amazing!!!”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

We came here based on a friends recommendation. This place was small but service was excellent and the food was even better! Best rice, beans and empanadas I have ever eaten! Every bite was delicious and flavorful.

“Good variety”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Went with family - some vegan, some vegetarian and some meat eaters. All had several, varied selections to choose from, which was a big hit with our group. One of the specials, a fish stew, was tasty, but was more like a soup (very thin, tomato-based broth). The steak fajitas were so / so (the meat was fairly tough and bland, but the vegetables were cooked nicely and the accompanying tortillas were piping hot but not dried out). Service was good to very good for this type of eatery. Would recommend more for vegetarian / vegan options.

“Excellent Find! ”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I were in town for a concert and looking for a place to eat dinner before the show. A quick search on TripAdvisor pointed us in this direction. We are so glad it did! What a great find! A little hole in the wall place that you could easily drive right by, the atmosphere changes as soon as you walk through the door. Friendly faces, great scents from the kitchen, and a lively feel. The food was great. My husband tried several different street tacos, which he died over. I had a carnitas torta...excellent fresh torta bread and REEALLY good carnitas. Lots of love! Only words pf caution - 1.) Margaritas, while very good, are quite strong. My husband and I split a pitcher and left pretty much wasted, but HAPPY. 2.) Both salsas are quite hot. Overall, this was an excellent find and a great experience. We will be back!

“Fantastic vegan selection”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

CC uses fresh, local produce in its vegan dishes. Loved the vegan tacos served with a mouth-watering green salad. I am salivating as I write this. Killer margaritas, too. Its a small place that fills up fast, but worth the wait.
