Cinco de Mayo
Ranked #12 of 22 Restaurants in Mauston
Cuisines: Mexican
Description: This is the best Mexican food I have had in a long time. Everything was fresh and delicious. The service was great. The prices were reasonably. The portions were good. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys authentic Mexican food served fresh and hot. The fried cheesecake finished off an excellent meal! 5 stars!!!

We recently discovered Cinco de Mayo which is near our summer home. I can only say that I wish we had gone there sooner than we did. The salsa has a nice kick (with continual refills of salsa and chips), the margaritas are nicely blended and the food is terrific. In addition, the folks that run the restaurant are delightful....very anxious to please and wanting to make your dining experience a good one. The decor is very sweet, the prices reasonable and the portions HUGE! During the summer, we go their 3-4 times a month. We love it!

This is a good Mexican restaurant with reasonable prices. Nothing special about ambiance but the food and service is very good. Portion size is reasonable. A good place for families with children.

We ate dinner at the Cinco de Mayo restaurant the first weekend in September when we stayed in Mauston overnight. It was fantastic! I'm glad we ignored the couple bad reviews listed here. The restaurant was beautiful, they had recently got all new booths and tables there that were hand carved and painted in Guadalajara and imported just for the restaurant. There was a bit of a language barrier with our waiter, but not bad; knowing some spanish would help. The food was delicious, the portions large, and the margaritas were tasty. The price was right too. We enjoyed a great conversation with one of the restaurant owners at the end of our meal who told us all about the new booths and how he ended up in WI. We really enjoyed our visit to Cinco de Mayo and would go back any time.

Fajitas were a bit dry and chewy. Hot house tomatoes in Sept were disappointing. Tamale and chili rellano had good flavor. Would try it again if I was a locale. Would not be a high priority for a traveling re-do. Reasonable prices. Friendly staff.
