This place is just amazing, and we keep trying to compare with other Mexican restaurants, but keep coming back to El Fuego. We always order the Traditional Chicken Enchiladas or Chimichanga and they are served HOT and the portions are very generous, which we love!...More

I have eaten here a few times for lunch. There are several lunch combos but still a bit high for lunch. The chicken fajita lunch is decent but little actual chicken mostly peppers and onions.

In Milwaukee to see the US Open and wanted a great place to eat near the airport. This place was awesome! Big and beautiful restaurant inside, copious amounts of food and great drinks. A great find!

Went for lunch and found the atmosphere to be pleasant wait staff to be prompt and courteous. Food was above average but way too pricey! Can get authentic Mexican food at a dozen other restaurants in Milwaukee at half the price.
