This place was quite cozy. I've never been to the Yucatan but was raised on Mexican food. I don't know what part of Mexico my family is from, but our food is much different. Had the chicken mole--not like mom's, rice was dry. Too much chipotle? Guac was bland, margaritas were strong (ok) but not buch flavor to them. Alot of fruit flies buzzing around. Have stomach ache morning after.

The atmosphere reminded me of a little Mexican restaurant in Mexico. The Salsa was unique with rich color, dense texture and just the right amount of spice. The home made guacamole was terrific! The chicken in marinaded and there is no skimping when served in tacos or enchiladas. The enchilada sauce was terrific! Looking forward to going back and sitting outside.

This teeny restaurant, housed in the old village of Brown Deer, is like coming home to mom's kitchen table...If mom lived in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The long, curvey formica counter, staffed usually by two or three wait staff, is condusive to chatting-it-up with your fellow counter mates, or not. It is possible to have an intimate conversation, even at a counter, if your body language says so. Water is placed down in less than 3 minutes along with fresh, mild salsa and chips. Drinks aren't far behind. The small menu changes daily with affordable fish and meat specials. But the staples, fish tacos made with delicate white fish, flavorful chicken tacos in soft shells, a colorful house salad made with black beans, corn and pine nuts and other Mexican fare is solid and fresh, fresh, fresh!!! Milwaukee's rich and famous stop in for take out or a bite to eat. The eatery boarders tony River Hills so people watching can be very interesting.
