Had the stuffed peppers and my wife three assorted tacos and the whole dinner was exquisite. Peppers cooked perfectly, pork moist and well seasoned. Tacos doubled shelled dipped in sauce. Reasonably priced. A Negra Modelo to go along. Great down home atmosphere

I've never been disappointed when eating here. The food is great and inexpensive. The staff is friendly and it's almost always a short wait to receive our food.

Great food. Very authentic homestyle taste. Fresh and fast . Parking is a nightmare. Especially on a busy night.

Food was just average. Pretty bland but cooked well. Guacomole was fresh and delicious. Service was super friendly. We'd go back because it was close but only if we were being lazy.

I spend many weeks a year in the central highlands of Mexico, so I know something about Mexican food from that area, though I'm not an expert. When I want an authentic Mexican meal back home in Wisconsin I get it at Taqueria El Palmar....More

A favorite place for our family to enjoy authentic mexican food in Waukesha. It is a small hole in the wall but affordable and tasty.

Ok, so it was somewhat cheap, but you get what you pay for. Waitress was busy with only 2 tables full in the joint. Her attitude reflected so. I would rather go to Casa Ole where the food is better & staff is super friendly.
