Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

While it's true this place is out in the sticks...... It is by far the best Mexican food I have eaten!!! Meno the owner is Mexican and does speak some English . His girlfriend .. ( the hard working women tending bar and waiting tables) referred to as Lame in a previous review... May not come off as the friendliest ... But walk a mile in her shoes ... She has a heart of gold!! Her and her boyfriend have a hidden Gem that most people would appreciate!! If your in a hurry ... Yes sometimes they are very busy and service is slow but... Don't you go out to diner to relax ??? Go to Portage and eat at Taco Bell or the Lame So called Mexican restaurant in town if you want faster service and Lame Mexican food!!
Anyone who truly loves authentic ... Because it is.... Tamales, chili rejenos..Shrimp soup...Chicken Mole ( the best you will ever find!!!) will absolutely Love this place!!!!

My husband found this place years ago when we were dating and just loved it! We have been going there since. Best Mexican food any where. While it may be a dive it beats by far the pretentious five star restaurants in Madison. While the waitress may not seem friendly, she has to get to know you before she warms up. So don't judge the place because not everyone is a "warm fuzzy". Go for the amazing food!

The food is incredible. The Nachos are the absolute best!!! The waitress is the owners wife and I agree, terrible service with no personality. Manuel the owner is awesome. It's up for sale. It's a complete dive. But the food overrides the lame waitress and the dive. Yummo!

Excellent Mexican food and service outside Kingston, WI. Will be going back every time I'm in the area.

The food may be OK to good, but the service tastes terrible, if you get any. The woman working on our visit was as friendly as a Mexican rattlesnake bite. Prepare to be treated like you are not welcome in the least. If you dare ask for food, you are inconveniencing her even more. It is like she is being forced to work there as a slave or just could not find work anywhere else. I would rather drive 100 miles to a taco bell and pay 5 star restaurant prices, then go to this po-dunk restaurant again. The only reason it gets good reviews is because locals have nothing better to choose from. That is the honest truth, and I'm a local.
