“Will not ever go back”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

Three of us went to this restaurant on Saturday, 1/25. We decided to try it again after not having been there for many years. The prices were always quite reasonable.

Our first impression wasn't too good as we noticed a lot of stained ceiling tiles.

This was not a good visit at all. One of us ordered a grilled cheese sandwich, which tasted bad to her. The other 2 of us tried it and agreed that there was a bad taste to it on the outside like some bad taste from the grill. After a long while the waitress asked how everything was tasting. We told her that the grilled cheese sandwich was bad and asked if there was anything that she could do about it. It took quite a while for her to get back to us, only to tell us that the cook said there was nothing he could do. That was all that she could do, I guess, because when the check came, she had charged us $4.40 for the bad, never remade, grilled cheese.

Also, on this trip all of us went to the bathrooms. The Men's bathroom was run down and dirty. The Women's bathroom shouldn't have even been open. It was dirty, the drywall was ripped off part of the wall, the soap dispenser was broken and open. The only way to get liquid soap was to dip your hand in the soap. If that is what the workers had to do, I don't think it is too good.

Upon leaving, the hostess asked us how everything was. When we complained about the Grilled Cheese Sandwich, all she said was that she was, "sorry" as she took the money from us. We told her that we would be giving the restaurant a bad review on the internet, but we still received no concern.

“A American and Mexican Cuisine that has been a Shawano Landmark for year”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Flamingos, a great place that is open 24 Hours a day and there are not many places like this. Flamingos offer both American and Mexican Cuisine and they do both very well. We have dined here several times and have had an American breakfast, and then again a Mexican breakfast. The staff prepares daily specials and has them up on their digital sign board out front.

I have had chalaupas and they were very traditional as well as their sauces, which are very Mexican based background.

Breakfasts are prepared to your liking and depending on if you want a American style or Mexican style your choices are almost endless with a wide variety.

They also have the traditional lunches, soups, dinners that offer chicken, pork chops, burgers and more. In addition they offer your typical sides to go with your meal.

Traditional menu fare are great and a wide variety and their prices are very reasonable and don't break your pocket book. Service is also good and the staff is also paying attention and should keep you well occupied.

Overall I think its another great sit down restaurant with good food, portions and service.

Will I go again? you bet

so try them out and enjoy
