Owned by a Puerto Rican, this Mexican restaurant has good eats and great service. Since they understand their market, they also had a very reasonably priced fish fry on the menu for Friday night in Watertown. Good enough that the six year old in our group did not pine too deeply for chicken nuggets.

I went to Amado's with a group of about 30 people, at 4pm on a Friday afternoon, and we were seated right away. Shortly after we were seated, we were served chips and salsa, which were amazing, and the waitress took our drink order, which was served within minutes. The Margarita on the rocks is a must have!

I stopped here on a nice evening and got some nachos to go and took them to the park and enjoyed them while I was out in the fresh air. I had heard a lot of recommendations for this place's food and I was not disappointed!

We like this family owned small restaurant in downtown Watertown, WI, and regularly visit for lunch and dinner. Good Mexican, Italian, and Cajun fare, as well as baked and fried fishfry on Friday. Nice beer selection. But, as the headline indicates, occasionally Amado and Mary open for breakfast. We enjoyed breakfast with them on New Year's Day, and left satisfied... More

We enjoy the Mexican fish that they have on Friday nights. It's a new way to try fish! The service was excellent .Very friendly atmosphere . Because it's busy on Friday nights it is loud and difficult to visit.
