This is the second time we have eaten here. Hands down, the best Mexican food in Wisconsin. Owners are great, service is good. My only complaint is the decor sucks but the place is clean. Love their chimichangas and margaritas!

Very nice Mexican food. A little crowded and noisy but the staff were very friendly and the service was good.

An authentically Mexican restaurant with scrumptious food, cravable margaritas, and relaxed atmosphere. They serve delicious salsa and chips before your meal. Food comes out fast and the servings are large. Sit at a personal table or chill at the bar.

Got to the restaurant before 6p.m. Extremely fast and courteous service. There were 4 in our party, and everyone was very happy with their food. Amazing to find a fabulous Mexican restaurant in Wisconsin!

A lot of choices and great good! Service is fast! The only downfall is the space. They are always busy and would benefit from a larger space.

The restaurant was very busy but we were seated outside. The ambience is lacking because the patio abuts a busy highway, but the food is good.

This place was recommended by the staff at the hotel, if you like Mexican food. Very very busy but well worth the wait. It is not a fancy place. Easy access off the hwy. Service was friendly and fast. People didn't come for the ambiance...More

I was staying at the Ashland hotel and this is in the same parking lot. This restaurant has great food. Having come from California, I am always looking for good Mexican food. It seems Wisconsin has the market on that. Once again, Wisconsin has come...More
