“Wonderful Mexican Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2013

Who would think that a town that prides itself for it's Norwegian heritage would have one of the best Mexican restaurants in the area. Nearby Madison has nothing better. We are locals and have tried most of them.

Don't let the brightly painted exterior scare you away. There is nothing tacky about the food. This is a family run operation with family recipes. Their $7 "Cadillac Margarita" is as good as any for twice the price. The food prices are reasonable too.

“Who knew??”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2013

Who knew the little brightly colored building with even brighter colored walls inside housed an awesome Mexican restaurant! Don't just drive by and wonder what the place is all about, stop in and be amazed with the food & service. Our friends suggested we try it and we were a bit skeptical however we were pleasantly surprised. We've just added this restaurant to our favorites list.

“Chimi Acapulco enough for two!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2013

So, after having this restaurant right down the road from us, after 9 years and hearing wonderful things about it, we decided to go there for lunch. We were not disappointed. The prices were reasonable and the service was good. My son ordered the Chimi Acapulco. It was filled to the brim with shrimp, beef, chicken and assorted veggies. It was HUGE and definitely big enough for 2 people to share. They also have his favorite rice drink - horchata. Yes, we will go back when we want some Mexican food and will not wait another 9 years to do so.

“Awesome place to eat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2012

El Rio Grande is an awesome place for dinner. This is the best place for Mexican Food in Wisconsin. I would recommend the Chimi Acalpulco or any of the chimis. Also, the Arroz con Pollo, and burritos! Always friendly service, and free chips and salsa (the best).
