I love this place. I always get the chicken enchilada's and my wife always gets the tostada's. They also make the best Mexican rice we've had in town. Very cheap and no, the service isn't always great but for the price it's about what

Conejitos is absolutely THE PLACE to be for authentic, delicious Mexican cuisine, especially if you're looking for quality food without an inflated price tag! Yes, this particular establishment does serve their food on paper plates, but I feel this adds to the charm and really reiterates what they're trying to achieve - which is, maintaining a casual, laid-back yet friendly atmosphere.

Be prepared to wait a bit for a table however, as they are almost always packed. At my own first visit my party and I were confused as to how to actually receive service, since there was no host at the door to greet us, hand us menus, nor seat us in an area...so, this would be the only drawback. But I feel this is really due to their equally casual attitude and demeanor, not out of rudeness or poor service. Nevertheless, we eventually just seated ourselves (which by the way, you are supposed to do anyway) and grabbed some menus from another free table to order our food. When it arrived I was surprised at how amazing it truly was! I'll never go to Taco Bell again, if you can believe it, a fast food chain is more expensive!! Honestly, between $2.50-$4.00 per meal.

Simply speaking, no matter what your take on the experience (which is ultimately unique), the food is where it's at with any restaurant & with Conejitos...NOTHING compares.

(Save your money by skipping La Perla & heading for this place instead. They are minutes, or rather, blocks away from each other & you won't risk running up a high bill like having dinner at La Perla, where both the place is overrated and the food overpriced. Conejitos is sooo under-appreciated, please give it a try!)

I have been to Mexico, Arizona and all over the country and Mexican food is my favorite. I laugh at the people that have said this isn't authentic mexican food. Go to Mexico, go to Arizona, if you don't think this is authentic, you don't

Great food and cheap prices (we're talking $3-$5 for a meal!). The service can be lacking depending on who you get. The last time I went I had to ask for a water refill 3 times before I actually got it. That's in part due to the fact that they are always super busy. If you are sensitive to smoke, this might not be your place. You can request to sit away from it, but the poor ventilation doesn't help the non-smoking section to truly feel like non-smoking. So - depending on your mood this can be a great experience or a not-so great one. If you're feeling precocious and want a "nice place" then go somewhere else for the night. If you're feeling laid back (as in you're not easily bothered by details like your food being served on paper plates) and like getting some great food for less - this is the perfect mexican food place.

Pros: Food!! Margeritas!!

If you love authentic Mexican food, try Conejitos. I've eaten there and you can't go wrong with anything you order. The Margaritas, salsa and chips are worth a visit. Try it!!!

This place is not at all like it used to be. The food is thrown together and sometimes not even fresh. The employees are busy talking to one another instead of taking care of customers. The owner will at times when he is drunk kick

The food is beyond amazing...and cheap! If you are looking for a real margarita, this is the place! No blended anything here folks - if you ask for a pitcher, you are getting a full pitcher of just plain margarita. Watch out - they can be dangerous!! If you are looking for a party atmosphere, walk around the block. If you are looking for some awesome food at an awesome price - this is the place to be!!

Too damned smoky. Two dining rooms, but smoking in both! Where is the owner's head? He should put smokers in one and nonsmokers in another.

I highly recommend the cheese enchiladas and steak tacos. The price of the food is very cheap and worth it. Overall decor is nothing special...food is served on paper plates. You can eat like a king for under 10 dollars.

Well, this is an interesting place. The food is very cheap and does not strike me as authentic Mexican in its puriest sense. The reason most folks journey to this place are the cheap margaritas in small glasses...but I imagine after 5 or

The food was absolutely delicious. Real authentic Mexican food and the service was friendly. The place is kind of a dive (and I wasn't crazy about the paper plates), but we were there for the food and the company. The bill for four of us was close to $50 (including about 4 drinks). We didn't try their margaritas, maybe next time. Check this place out if you live or work in the area. We gave it a four, but in reality we would give it 3 and a half. Three doesn't seem good enough, but four is too much. We probably won't run back on our own but we wouldn't mind meeting friends and family there in the future.

PROS: Really good grub.
CONS: The paper plates.

My son loves this place and eats here before/after every Bucks game. It was at his insistence that we eat here one night last week.
The restaurant was a fantastic bargain for our party of ten. With drinks, food and chips, the total bill
