“Instead of Friday fish fry try Mexican.”
Reviewed 17 March 2014 via mobile

We went out for dinner on a Friday night during lent, decided to give Mexican food a try rather than wait over an hour to get a table elsewhere. There was only one other table occupied when we arrived, so we were seated immediately. A basket of fresh, hot chips and two salsas graced our table,taking the edge off our appetites as we drank our beer and placed our order. I had a taco salad and my husband had tamales. Both entrees were delicious, my husband said his tamales were comparable to those he'd had in Mexico, and the hot sauce was real, not glorified Louisana hot sauce with a few jalapeños tossed in. We both decided we would be back to explore the menu further, as the food was outstanding. My only complaint was the prices were on the high side, especially the beverages. BUT this won't keep is from returning
the food was excellent!

“Superb Buffet”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

I have seen plenty of oriental restaurants that offer buffets but haven't experienced one featuring Mexican fare until this week. Imagine my surprise when I found one nearby in the "heart" of Burlington, Wisconsin. I have had several fine dinner there in the past but saw an advertisement for their "new buffet" offered on Saturdays from 11 AM to mid-afternoon... I decided to forego my usual breakfast and try something different... My wife and I arrived right at the start of the buffet and there wasn't any food out yet. The owner, who greeted us with a hearty smile, apologized and said they were still setting up. She seated us and promptly brought us beverages and complimentary chips and two home-made salsas, one green and a milder red. Soon the hot dishes were finding their way to the buffet table and within 10 minutes we were filling our plates with fresh and delightful entrees such as chicken enchiladas in verde sauce, Steak Ranchero, Huevos Rancheros and the obligatory rice and beans... Also gracing the buffet table was fresh fruit and salad fixings. I tried most of the entrees but found the Chicken Enchiladas and the Steak Ranchero to be outstanding... We ate our fill and left totally satisfied, both with the quality of the food but with the value... The owner paid us plenty of attention and asked how we enjoyed our food... We told her we could not have been more impressed... We'll definately return and next time we'll bring some friends along for the ride...
Thank you Los Compadres... Hasta la Vista... and Gracias....
