We love the live music on the patio, specialty drinks, the kids LOVE the food. Best, authentic Mexican food. Try the street tacos; my fav!

Saw them on an older episode of "Carnival Eats" and found out they were semi local. HAD to come try the chimmichuri steak tacos...and it was worth it. Portions a bit small for the price, but chips and salsa are excellent. Planning to come back to try the Baja fish tacos....

My wife had the portabella street tacos and said they were great. Service was good prices and are in line with the product. Wish we would have tried it sooner. Will be... More

Found this place by default as it was one of few restaurants open on Sunday evening. We were not disappointed! Food was great Mexican and service was outstanding. Very pleased!

We were looking for some good Tex-Mex in Geneva and thought this was the place. We were disappointed. The rice was instant, the chips were on the greasy side and the dishes were so unmemorable we don´t remember. Que lastima!

I find I've become a regular here for their lunch specials. Handy location, and good Mexican brings me back. Service is always friendly, and your order is back quick (but not fast food) gets me back to work ontime.

Sergio's has a sort of Beach party vibe going on. Good margarita selection, big portions and fun menu. Geneva is full of trendy, hip Mexican style restaurants with artisan tacos and deep rhythmic club music. This is not that, so if you just want a solid Mexican meal, this is your place.

My wife and I stopped in for a Friday lunch. It took nearly 15 minutes for our server to get us menus and take our drink order. It didn't get much better from there. The chips and salsa tasted "store bought". Nothing seemed authentic and to top it off the music was loud and obnoxious. We had been there before.... More

If you're looking for Margarita's, Beer, chips and salsa, in a fun environment, visit here. If you're looking for authentic, Mexican food, this is not your first choice. There are so many authentic, local and chef driven Mexican choices in the area, I'm always somewhat amazed they continue to draw crowds. They do have a great corner, which could be... More
