I would give it zero stars if I could. The food was bland. Got a combination platter with a taco, enchilada, and tostada. The taco was mostly meat (did not taste seasoned at all), a few shreds of lettuce and a couple tomato dices. The tostada was not bad, but still fairly bland. The enchilada was non-descript.
The service was very poor. It was over five minutes after we sat that a waitress greeted us. She brought menus and silverware, but did not ask for our drink order for another five minutes. Took an additional five minutes to get three drinks. The place was about half empty, I have no idea what the waitress was doing. Food took about 20 minutes to prepare, again way too long considering the small amount of people there. Waitress rolled her eyes impatiently when my wife took a bit to order. We had to ask an additional time to receive the side of salsa that we ordered. We were not approached to see if everything was to our liking.
Food was overpriced (total bill $25). Could have got better service and tastier food from taco bell for half the price.
At least the beer was cold...
Expensive, poor service, menu is very hard to read. The waitress never came over, asked us if we needed anything, never refilled coffee and it was slow there were only a few tables of people in the restaurant. By the time we got the bill we could have easily spent that amount in a nice restaurant with good service. Also the
menu is very hard to read.
Ate at many different Mexican style restaurants on the south side of Milwaukee (Mitchell street area) and as far as taste is concerned there may be a difference but it is subtle. Definitely not worth getting shot at. The Quesadilla Grande is a very good appetizer. Shredded beef or chicken is better than ground in any of the entrees. My wife loves the shredded chicken enchiladas. Many people get the carry-out dinners. They have Mexican beer on tap (that is rare). This owner really knows his tequila. He has a remarkable collection of sipping tequilas.
Great food and service, but the best part is they have a bar and dance floor in the back. Went there opening night and had a blast. Check it out, its the only bar with a dance that I know of in West Bend.
My husband and I love the food. We use to live in Germantown and would take the time to drive to west bend just to eat at El Tapatio De Jaliso. Oh happy day we move to west bend and now we are only 5 min away. How cool is that:) One thing I did notice that the portions were reduced and the price went up:(
The chips and salsa were great, the entrees however at both locations were not even edible. And yes, I've had good authentic Mexican food many times---which I know doesn't taste like taco bell or Qdoba's, but it doesn't taste like this either. Maybe I should've just tried a standard taco or beef burrito (but I can easily make those at home for less, so what's the point?)
I tried my favorite, Chile Rellanos at the Cedarburg location and ate less than 1/4 of the bitter, thick-skinned/rubbery goop (even though I was famished)--politely taking the rest home to throw away. Even the refried beans tasted like eating straight lard (yes an ingredient, but not the only one I'd hope)
At the West Bend location, I tried the seafood chimichangas. If you like little fried rollups filled with a funky schmear containing a few tiny freezer burned salad shrimp, then dig in. Same lard/bean goop on the side. Not even worth wasting a styrofoam container on in my opinion.
