Food was OK. When cooking fajitas the vegetables should always be sautéed more than mine were. Very much enjoyed the magician doing card tricks. Name is Ryan Martin. Check him out on RyanMartin.com I told him he should go on America's got Talent show, he said he will be there next year

We enjoyed a nice lunch here with a very friendly college-age waiter, working there for the summer. The food was good, especially the guacamole and the outside tables where we sat, offer a lovely view. No complaints.

This restaurant was OK, but it was nothing special. I think the most impressive thing about this place is the fact that it sits on the river with a great view of the water. But if you visit in October, like we did, it gets dark early and you never see it. The food is Ok. I would write home... More

Visited with friends. Had drinks which took well over twenty minutes to get at table. Food was ok, nothing spectacular. Wait staff seemed unconnected almost as if they were just going through the motions. Not sure how to categorize, since the place is just ok. Not bad, not great...

We had not been to Mexicali Rose in a while so decided to give it a try. My shrimp fajitas were ok- shredded cheese was old. Had to ask for sour cream and was nearly done with my meal before it arrived. My husbands fish tacos were not good. The guy that comes around to your table to do magic... More

The service was great and our waitress very sweet, but the food is not authentic. The rice was hard and dry and the beans tasted from a can. The steak fajitas was flavorful, but the steak wasn't steak it was more beef strips. Would recommend for drinks and sitting outside by the lake. Very scenic.

We have driven past this restaurant a hundred times as we eat up in the Dells quite often, and have always wanted to stop and try it. We did just that yesterday and quite honestly, wish we hadn't. The hostesses were wonderful, sat us outside at a waterfront table. Being early October, it wasn't at all busy. We saw 2... More
