    "Son of a Fiesta" was bad. This was one of the worst Mexican food experiences in recent memory. Skip this place and go to any other Mexican restaurant. Seriously. 10$ bland guac, no thanks

    Family-owned since the 1960s, La Cucaracha is a down-to-earth neighborhood joint, festively decorated with murals, trinkets, and pinatas, creating a cozy feel. Read more

    It was good. Although it's expensive and there's no wi-fi for your smartphone to lean on.

    More expensive than you think, be prepared to pay over $20 if you get an entree and a drink. No free chips and salsa. Service was lackluster. Having said all that, the food is quite good.

    Service can sometimes be a little lacking, but the food is fantastic. The chicken chimchanga is the best in the cities and the Bullfighter margarita is worth the extra money to upgrade! Yum.

    Puerco Guisado Verde might be the first entree at a Twin Cities Mexican restaurant to hit the true "hot-hot" thresholds you get at South Asian and Caribbean restaurants.
