We stopped here for lunch on the suggestion of a local. Great advice! The food was delicious and inexpensive. The service was okay, but only one waitress for the whole place. She kept forgetting our water until just before we left.

This place is known for it's inexpensive food (nachos .85 and more with the salsa, 4 tacos for less than $5) and serving it on paper plates. Food comes quickly and tastes great. My issue recently was that we had a group, which I know is challenging for smaller establishments, but because we couldn't give them the EXACT count (it was going to be between 10 and 12) they refused to seat us and ultimately most of the group left and went to a micro-brew place next door. They took everyone to the back room, made them wait, then a gentleman brought them back to the bar area and started seating them there when a woman swooped in and said "no way, don't know how many, you don't get tables." Then they bring in a group that they just took to the back, and sat them at the tables we were kicked out of." Good thing the bartender rocked or I wouldn't have stayed to even finish my beer - just rude. On the way out, I did notice their big yellow signs on the door saying, "no seating if you don't know total number in your group." Still strange and it wasn't handled professionally.

We've been coming here for years. It is what it is. Decent mexican food fast and cheap. No complimentary chips like other places but everything is reasonably priced. We usually order tostadas, tacos and the mexican lunch plate with a couple of margaritas. Can get out of there for $20+ and in under 20 minutes most of the time.

I have wnjoyed Conejito's for over 30 years.
I lunched in the bar area with an East Coast friend before the Brewes gameand had a great time. Where else can you get an inexpensive and authentic Mexican meal served on paper plates at a restaurant?
The enchalada combo is always a winner for first timers. It includes1 beef, 1 chicken and 1 cheese and onion enchalada and your choice of beans or rice (I suggest getting both.)
Prefer the low key neighborly "ambiance" of the bar area over the dining room.

We have recently relocated from Wisconsin to New Mexico. But when we lived in Milwaukee, Conejito's Place was one of our two favorites in the Historic Third Ward in downtown Milwaukee. La Fuente was our second favorite.

Conijito's is located on the corner of 6th St. and West Virginia. It may be best known for serving their dinners on paper plates and that was fine with us. As with most of the Mexican restaurants in Milwaukee, they were generally served with lots of cheese. We especially liked the enchiladas. In fact, we are still looking for places in Albuquerque that don't skimp on the cheese. We're still looking for one that lives up to Conejito's.
