I had a small birthday dinner at Joe Pena's, and overall I'm quite pleased with the dining experience. Contrarily to any other Mexican restaurant I have tried in Milan, the food's quality is quite OK, not stellar, but at least the fajitas were tasty and the meat well prepared.
One thing to mention is the selection of drinks: cocktails are quite well made, and the bar offers a very wide selection of high quality rum.
I can recommend this place to anyone in Milan looking for a good Mexican dinner.

I went to joe pena with my girlfriend and overall I can say I was satisfied both with the food and the price range which is in line with the mexican restaurants in the city center. Overall it is in line with the other mexican restaurants you can find in Milan in terms of food, but the location is really nice and in a beautiful area.

The restaurant is just close to Porta Genova Metro stop, a bit out of the beaten truck but close to Milan Night Area. Ownership has changed in 2015 and since the restaurant is getting better and better. The food is delicious, not easy to find such a Mexican restaurant in Milan and in Italy, and cocktails are even better. The have a huge selection of spirits and cocktails. It is perfect to have a nice evening with friends in particular during music nights, where live bands play. Highly reccomended!

We've eaten at this place several times, having first been introduced when we arrived here a few years ago. It's a great way to get non italian food, but it's much better to go with Italians (as many restos are in Italy). The food and service here are generally both mediocre at best, but generally when you are with Italians the drinks will be better. We wondered if swill beer was poured in a Dos XX bottle the other night! and the margaritas were substandard. The chips are always stale, so I suggest a new supplier - or why don't they make their own? The guacamole is great and I don't think they use additives and chemicals in the food. It seems fresh other than the chips. Go for fun with friends and an escape from Italian food.
