Very authentic mexican food. Happy hour specials on drinks and appetizers also. Great decor and outdoor patio as weather permits.

“Great food, awesome service from Ivan, can't wait to go back!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

I thought I was walking into a very large run of the mill Mexican restaurant. Wow was I wrong! The wait was 25 to 30 minutes although we were seated in less than 15 minutes which was a great surprise. Our server was Ivan and couldn't have been any better. Eating with a 19 month old can be challenging to say the least!!! Our server made sure our service was really fast and well taken care of but even more the food was great. The oysters are delicious for an app and the guacamole is superb. On a closing note; the check was accompanied with an ice pop for my son!!! What an awesome gesture!!! My new number 1 Mexican restaurant in Milwaukee.
Sincerely a first time customer that will now frequent this establishment very frequently!
Thank you Ivan and El Fuego for a great dining experience!

“Don't bother”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

food is not authentic mexican. Service is rushed. Owners don't care. We tried to book the party room once and the person in charge never returned calls and booked it to another party after we thought we had a reservation. Avoid!

Great service with attention to detail (custom orders+++). All dishes are large portions. Fajitas were great. Chips and salsa come complimentary.
