the title could actually be a review of Milwaukee in general. Very small [5-6 table?] Mexican restaurant. I enjoy the "sandal" with pork al pastor... very fresh flavors. It is not La Fuente [which is great for the typical margarita first dining experience] but a nice change of pace with similar fare but more fresh flavors. It is a family... More

We found this on TA while traveling toward Milwaukee. We were looking for a place to meet family for a quick dinner in the Miller Park area. We love authentic Mexican food and this did not disappoint. Food was fresh and delicious. I ordered the Fish Tacos (not what they are called on the menu) and they were possibly the... More

Some friends of our took us to this tiny little Mexican restaurant near their home. There are only five tables in this cozy little restaurant. Chips and house salsa are served upon arrival. Both were excellent. They also serve two different salsas in ketchup type dispensers on the table. We ordered the guacamole which was fantastic. I ordered the tilapia... More

My husband wanted to go to this place for months when he saw it. It's in a tiny building that just looks like a little office or something. He loves hole in the wall type places and is always trying to find a gem. Based on outward appearances, I always vetoed the suggestion. Eventually I gave in, and he has... More

Went here based on the trip advisor reviews. Very small place with very good food and service. The guacamole was outstanding. Had the enchalidas mole. It was very good as were the rice and beans. Great place if you want intimate and authentic Mexican.

I love the food here and am addicted to the mole! Reviewers have commented on the small size- I personally love it because it was my best friends grandfather's barbershop that he built. The cozy atmosphere is sweet.

I am very particular when it comes to Mexican food and I rarely find a Mexican restaurant I like outside of New Mexico. However, I found one tonight in Quiote. I have never been a big fan of fish tacos but I decided to try one after reading the great review, and I am sure glad I did! This was... More

This is my new favorite Mexican restaurant. My husband and I were considering going to Bel Air Cantina last night, but the wait was over an hour, and then we remembered having driven past Quiote, so gave it go. It is tiny and adorable, with authentic Mexican food. I used to live in Mexico, and have been griping about the... More
