Absolutely one our favorite places in Watertown. Mary & Amado are amazing, always have Hacker-Pschorr waiting for us and have the most delicious homemade shots for our birthdays! Also, cannot leave out a review about the food. Never been disappointed, and don't leave without dessert! Definitely recommend if you are in the area. ☺️

Food is fantastic with a good selection for everyone. My favorite is the Tequila shrimp. Drinks are good and reasonably priced. Staff is friendly and attentive.

Owned by a Puerto Rican, this Mexican restaurant has good eats and great service. Since they understand their market, they also had a very reasonably priced fish fry on the menu for Friday night in Watertown. Good enough that the six year old in our group did not pine too deeply for chicken nuggets.

I stopped here on a nice evening and got some nachos to go and took them to the park and enjoyed them while I was out in the fresh air. I had heard a lot of recommendations for this place's food and I was not disappointed!

We like this family owned small restaurant in downtown Watertown, WI, and regularly visit for lunch and dinner. Good Mexican, Italian, and Cajun fare, as well as baked and fried fishfry on Friday. Nice beer selection. But, as the headline indicates, occasionally Amado and Mary open for breakfast. We enjoyed breakfast with them on New Year's Day, and left satisfied... More

They have wonderful margaritas, on the rocks or frozen. Very friendly owners that run restaurant. Usually busy but food is great. Taco special on Tuesdays along with other wonderful food too.
