Although it is fairly loud, the food is fabulous. The steak tacos, cheese enchiladas are the best. ....and I ate Mexican food in California for 20 years. My daughter is a Chef and it's her favorite too. I traveled from Waukesha. Service is consistently good as is the food. Fresh, hot, delicious !!!!

This is our most visited restaurant in Milwaukee. Cheap prices and delicious food. In the summer months there is a cute patio out back.

First time at the restaurant and it won't be our last. I found the service to be exceptional and very attentive. The food was prepared to my expectations, I had a burrito and it was delicious. The serving plates are large and the food accommodates the plates. Street parking was available at the time we ate. We will make a... More

Cheap, but you get a good dose of grease. Nothing outstanding. Not terrible. Probably, with selection of Mex restaurants in MKE, will pass on returning.

If your looking for some good Mexican food GTO is the spot to go! Hey that rhymed 😜 they were very nice and the food tasted like someone's grandma was in the back getting down in the kitchen!! The strawberry margarita was pretty good but I would have preferred Jose or another type of tequila in it. The outside doesn't... More

We went for a late lunch today as we have driven by many times, and stopped spur of the moment. Parking is very sparse, but we snagged a space. The interior is cute but nothing special. The staff was nice and they were very casual and polite. You can tell they all pitch in together. We both had Chile Rellanjos,... More

We meet some friends here for a Sunday lunch every 6 to 8 months and have never been disappointed. Their menu is massive so be prepared to peruse it. Portions are extremely large with tasty beans and rice. There are usually 5 of us altogether and everyone has their favorite. Seems as though we always order the same thing because... More
