RUDE STAFF!! We arrived to the restaurant around 615 for my birthday dinner. Place is on the smaller side but still had enough tables for us to put together for our party of 19. They refused to serve our group. They said 15 or less. I told them it was my birthday and was told previously they could accommodate us. But No they said NO! They quickly sat all the tables we could've pushed together. Made us stand around for about 15 min. only to tell us they couldn't seat us. They ruined my birthday dinner! Thanks Conejitos! If your more than 6 people they don't want to take care of you! How can you turn away $300 in business. No manager on site either to speak with! They just lost 19 customers and hopefully more!

We went based off a locals review. She said she had been coming for over 20yrs even had stories about the owner so we were excited about it. We were let down. I can get past the paper plates and it being a hole in the wall as that's usually where the good food is but it was a total disappointment. We arrived and were taken to our seats and then another waiter comes up and says 50 mins we looked shocked and asked what are you saying she said you have 50 min to order eat pay and leave. That should've been our que to leave but we stayed bc this placed was so highly recommended.it was time to order and the waiter gave us a list of what's not available which left us with about 3 things we could order. We ordered guacamole which had no flavor. The beef roast tacos tasted microwaved and the famous Strawberry Margarita was a let down! Needless to say we ubered back to our hotel and ordered pizza.

Was taken here by a local a few years ago and food was very good. Authentic Mexican not what Americans think it is.

Was back in Milwaukee and we stopped for lunch. Still the same food. Quick service, chips and salsa were great. Tacos and enchilada plate were both served quickly and hot. Served on paper plates but I don't typically eat the plate anyway.

Busy place but very quick service for authentic Mexican food. Stop in and give a try. It's just a little south of the Harley Davidson Museum.

A friend originally from Milwaukee has been coming here since the 1980s and swears by it. A great, laid back place to eat and/or drink - just don't expect high-end. Highly recommend the chicken mole ($5 for white meat, $4.50 for dark meat) and the steak tacos (4 for $4.20). A pitcher of margaritas (no ice added) will run you $17, beers $2.75 (domestic) or $3 (Mexican). Very friendly service.

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.
