Great food, great prices AND great service. Plus the tables and chairs are beautifully painted. We had the pollo loco and taquitas Mexicano; both were well-seasoned and prepared. The location doesn't look like much from the outside; don't let that deter you.

Took a drive to find some fall color and decided to try this place. When we walked in a Little before noon we were concerned that we were the only customers but thanks to previous reviews here we proceeded to order. We found the margaritas very bland, not necessarily weak, but like the mix had been watered down too, and... More

Excellent food!!! Our drinks were good too. The service was top notch and servers are friendly. We were just passing through Black River Falls when we came across this little gem. If we are ever back in the area we will defiantly return.

It's hard to say it's the best Mexican food I've had, it's not, but I'm from New Mexico so that's not fair. It's really good, I had the carnitas, my kids liked their food, and my wife ate almost all of the chiles rellenos. Definitely worth a try. The Horchata was good, too! not sure what it would have taken... More

Huge selection of Mexican food. Opted for the burrito Verde - will not be able to finish it. Reasonably priced. Homemade chips and salsa are excellent.

To be honest some of the best Mexican food I've had. Classic colourful Mexican decor just the way I like it. Service was great, food was homemade, hot and fresh. Great experience. Highly recommend.

As part of my never-ending quest to try carnitas at every Mexican restaurant in USA, I had an opportunity to eat at CdM while passing through Black River Falls. Service was fast and friendly. The server chatted with us a bit and each person that brought out chips, appetizer or dinner was also very friendly. The bean queso dip was... More

Went for lunch. They were not to BZ. Service was fast. We enjoyed our meal and the price is reasonable. This is not a fancy place. Not a large restaurant. If they had been very BZ maybe our service may not have been so fast? I have had better Mexican food and a lot worse. The portions plenty big enough,... More
