Our group of 6 had no trouble getting a table. The waitstaff was pretty quick and the food was good and pretty authentic Mexican. The mole was tasty and the chicken plentiful. The paper plates didn't hold the sauce very well and things got pretty...More

I have been dining at Conejito's since I was attending MSOE in the late 70's. Papa Conjito, who I met many times, was a true gentleman who believed in dining the old-fashioned, family way. Their core menu, I am pleased to say, hasn't really changed...More

Have been going to this Milwaukee Institution for 28 years and I'm never disappointed. I've gone with family, friends and solo and have never had issues. Go with mindset of cheap eats served on paper plates and the food tastes good. Love their homemade Margarita's...More

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...More

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...More

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.
