We've eaten at Laredos several times and this time was disappointing. It's never a good sign when the help wanted sign is on the door! We had a very pleasant and attentive server, but waited 25 minutes for our food, which is highly unusual compared to previous experiences here. The waiter did explain the order did not get printed and... More

I will start by saying that we used to eat at this restaurant or its sister restaurant frequently but have not been here for a few years. I am saddened to say that the quality of the food has gone downhill compared with 3-5 years ago. The service was above average. We had the chicken taco salad and the chicken... More

This has been a "must stop" for my family for years (at least 20) every time we visit Madison. But this last visit was nowhere near as good as memory served. Burritos Deluxe - still good. My husband's chimichangas - just ok. The fried ice cream - served in a fancier dish, but a little greasier than I recalled. Salsa... More

The food was mediocre, the Margaritas are great and the wall murals are beautiful. It was a little disconcerting to see the waitress take a chip off a customer's plate and eat it before she delivered his food so we will not return.

We visited Laredos a week after we moved to Madison and have been enjoying their food ever since. We just ate there last week and it's excellent food every single time. We had ice teas and dinner including tip was $30. More than enough to eat - you won't leave hungry.

I've stopped here several times. I either get the fajitas, tamales or burritos and all are excellent. Service is A+.

The overall experience is good, the people are very nice. Nothing really stood out as exceptional. To be fair I have eaten an abundance of outstanding Mexican food over the years, so my expectations may be a bit higher. Overall A good lunch experience.

Stopped at a recommendation of a friend. Had the popular Guacamole as an appetizer. It was about 2 pounds of FRESH guac, with fresh chips in a huge mortal bowl. It was outstanding. I would order it again, even at 7.95. We had the lunch Tipera tacos, and the chile publano. Again, fresh, and outstanding. Re-fried beans are fresh and... More

Laredos has been around for about 20 years and when they first opened, they were a breath of fresh air from the Chi Chis type of establishments we had. These days, the food doesn't seem as exciting, but it is better than the other Mexican places we have. They have updated their menu recently with a few new offerings. Our... More
