Clean, friendly, festive and tasty Mexican food, when you go there ask for a side of mole (mo-lay) a rich dark sauce that goes great over your burrito.

Let me start out by saying my visit was on Cinco De Mayo. The place was packed! The drink specials were worth putting up with the crowd. The live music was very good. The down side - the meal. My burrito was sub-par for a mid-west Mexican restaurant. It was lukewarm and mostly flavorless. The atmosphere is pretty good. Nicely... More

We always stop in Wausau on our way to Green Bay for Packer games. Emma Krumbee's is gone and we tried the iHop last year and were less than impressed, so we thought we'd check this out. The service was ok until it was time to get our check - for whatever reason that took forever even after asking two... More

There is ample seating and we've never had to wait for a table. With 3 littles, this is a big plus. 2. The homemade salsa is outstanding and plentiful. 3.... More

We stopped for a late lunch and soup seemed like a good choice. It was an outstanding choice! The Gallina Negra was chick full of spinach, potatoes and chicken. Pedro was an excellent waiter. Wish I lived closer to this authentic Mexican restaurant.

I swear I do not know how anyone could give this place anything but 5 stars! We live 5 minutes away so it's great to order take out on those busy nights. We have a toddler and even he loves their food! They always pay special attention to him when we go in and eat. He always gets his food... More
