Very good AUTHENTIC Mexican food. The place is usually pretty busy but worth the wait. A little pricey but delicious.

Mary Lou is the best Mexican appie I have ever had. Been there twice and drove a long way both times just to have Mary Lou again. What is it? Quesadilla covered with red or green chile con carne. I know sounds simple enough but oh, the taste. I call it the best Mexican pizza ever. You can order mild... More

Our first choice on special occasions, especially when we want to have fun! The sangria margarita is to die for, and fantastically unique!

We have eaten here several times, love this Mexican food. Saturday was $1 margarita and they packed a punch...you could actually take the tequila! Each time we come back we bring another friend and they always want to come back too. Great food and drink with attentive staff. Your tastebuds will thank you!

This is where locals go according to a couple different Phoenicians. Food is solid and plentiful, but not fancy. Typical stuff you get at non-chain Mexican restaurants (i.e. a bit spicier than chain restaurants). Have gone here usually once per year over the past 5 or 6 years. Food in the $7-15 range

Thank MilwaukeeCraig
