    Just had one of the worst restaurant experiences of my life. Manager was beyond rude to us.. I would cross this place off my list - better choices all over milwaukee. No manager should be that rude

    Awesome food, my favorite Mexican restaurant in the area!
  • Joelle P.
    I bit into a fish taco and a super long hair was tangled all up in it. I told my waitress, the manager was suppose to talk with me but spent all her time with another complaining customer. Sad.

    The Korean beef tacos and burritos are fantastic, and the margaritas can't be beat. Taco Tuesday is awesome with $2.00 tacos.

    Everything here is so good. It's so nice to go to a Mexican restaurant with some flavor. So sick of the slop of beans & rice with bland whatever at other restaurants.

    10/10 Taco tues/thurs, burrito mon, are a FANTASTIC value, if you can find a seat. Excellent food, better atmosphere. Always ask for extra salsa and try the avacado/bacon tacos

    Uh.. Well where do I start? Beer took 1/2 hour to come out. Finally get beer.. Food comes out and the food runner dumped food on my bf and laughed about it. Brought out the wrong tacos 2 times.

    Can someone do something about the parking situation? The adjacent lot is owned by HR block and subway. Both of which will never need the extra space.

    It's not hyperbole on the menu. The burritos really are the size of a small chihuahua. Tasty, though. You should easily get two meals out of one.
