I saw the name, knew the name and had to stop. A family owned chain of possibly 4 locations in western Wisconsin. From the Chips and Salsa to the margarita to my enchilada dinner - very tasty. 1 chicken, 1 cheese, 1 beef enchilada, each with a different sauce, with rice and salad. The cheese and the chicken were my... More

I've been going for years. After the last two visits, I will not return. The service is still terrific, the atmosphere is great; however, the food is no longer good.

Very friendly staff and very good food. You can always plan on taking a box home, unless you are extremely hungry! I don't like super spicy food, but the chips and salsa were flavorful and tasty. Also, the chips were warm which is always nice. We had different entrees and both of us were well satisfied. A "yum" accompanied almost... More

This was our third time at Cinco De Mayo, The other two times were possibly good. And in deference to them, my husbands Carne Asada was really good. But when you order cheese enchiladas and what you get is cheese quesadilla that can be kind of disappointing. I also ordered them with green sauce. They came with no sauce at... More

Pros: Food was excellent! Portions are very generous. Waitstaff very cordial and attentive. Cons: Place is "dated", somewhat dirty (especially restroom). We ate lunch there today, after what would be normal lunch rush hour. We stumbled into the place, just cruising Mauston for a restaurant and almost drove right by this one. Glad we didn't miss it. We ordered Fish... More

I really enjoyed the food here but it takes a long time to get your food. We waited a half-hour for our food and just because I did not eat all my food the wait or treated me and my husband bad. He would not talk to us and was in a hurry to get us out of there. The... More

Well, O wish I could say that our visit to this restaurant was a good experience, but I can not. My husband and I went to this restaurant initially over a year ago and had very poor service and the staff acted like they cared less about customer service. Recently we thought we would give it a second chance. Now,... More

We have a favorite place for Mexican food in our home town, and we had some discussion during lunch whether this food was even better. This place has GOOD food. We were pleased to find a good Mexican restaurant, even though we were in a small Wisconsin town. There was a large menu to choose from. We would like to... More

The food is good but the prices are not great for the value. Service never seems to be very great when I stop in. I do love their homemade Guacamole and fresh cooked chips.

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!!!
