    Tiny portions, meh food, and crazy high prices. Our entrees didn't even come with rice and beans. Just go elsewhere.

    Great food. Skip the burritos and try main dishes. Not to disappoint. Sangria (pictured) pretty but strong - be warned!

    Go away quickly!!! DISGUSTING. Liked duck Tacos.... nothing to write home about for sure. Taco bell is better. El senoral is better and so much cheaper.

    This was incredible! Best Mexican place in SE Wisconsin. Atmosphere, decorations, food, drinks, and people were all fantastic. I had the chile relleno with a Mexican Rose drink, and both were delish!

    They will turn you away if you arrive on a Saturday night at 9:15pm because the kitchen closes at 10pm. How arrogant! I won't try to go back
