The dinner was with 5 people. The waiter came immediately with chips and salsa, and even a bowl of melted cheese for the kiddos to dip into. The adults ordered 16 oz margaritas, which were quite tasty, and soft drinks for the underage. The server came again and took our orders when we were ready. The food came on very... More

I love this restaurant because of the friendly staff, good food and best margaritas! I had a coupon the first time, I'm glad because had they not marketed in an ad I would not realized this little secret was even around.

The food is okay but the service is terrible! I have sat at both the bar and at a table and have experienced bad service at both. It really galls me when a service person pokes his head out of the kitchen, see's you sitting there and does not say anything to the wait staff!

The margaritas are amazing! The staff were very friendly. It took a little bit after sitting down to get a waiter, but he apologized and made us all laugh while taking our order. The service other than that was fast. He came back frequently to check on us. Definitely will be going back.

I have traveled to many places in my life and this place has the best Mexican food in Minnesota that I have found. You will need a nap after eating here,the portions are big.

Great food, great selection, great prices, great atmosphere! Nice sized portions but not overly large like some restaurants so I would not recommend sharing a meal unless you are content eating light with the complementary tortilla chips and salsa.

We live in Anoka and have been looking for a good Mexican restaurant. Very happy to find Mucho Loco and only about 12 miles from home. I had a great dish, Chorizo Polo and my wife had the enchiladas with a beef taco. All was very good. Also - their salsa is fabulous!

Service has been great. Portions are under review. I have rec'd larger portions at a cafe in Ramsey. I will return but with discretion.

Stopped in for lunch while in the area for a hockey tournament. The decor is okay and the menu is fairly standard for a Mexican restaurant, although it was nice to see chorizo (sausage) with some entrees. You get the standard chips and salsa prior to the meal. The food and service were fairly average.

Thank Tom H
