i've been going to conejits since my junior high days. my kids have been eating it since tots. i live out of town but when ever i am in milwaukke thats where we go. i took my boyfriend and he loved it. when my youngest doesn't go with he ask me to bring him something back from there. we live 3 hours away . love it love it love it. i've never had bad service even during the busy lunch hour
Was not enjoyable...soo overly crowded. The food served on paper plates? How tacky. They didn't have cilantro, or lime, or steak? What kind of mexican place does not specialize in those ingredients? Compared to other places. I would not recommend this place. It reminded me of eating grade school lunch..the spanish rice was mushy and no flavor. I would not recommend this place.

I love this place. I always get the chicken enchilada's and my wife always gets the tostada's. They also make the best Mexican rice we've had in town. Very cheap and no, the service isn't always great but for the price it's about what one should expect. I've never had ""terrible"" service, just sometimes a little slow. The hot sauce has a terrific flavor, too.
I have been to Mexico, Arizona and all over the country and Mexican food is my favorite. I laugh at the people that have said this isn't authentic mexican food. Go to Mexico, go to Arizona, if you don't think this is authentic, you don't know Mexican food.
Everything is hand made and fresh. The food is excellent, quick and inexpensive. This is as authentic as you can get. If you are looking for a sit down dinner with fine dining, don't look here. This is the kind of food you find at a stand on the street in Mexico or Arizona, the best food you find there. If you have to wait, have a couple margarita's, you will love em too!!

I love the people who say that this place isn't authentic... have you even been to Mexico?? Or just Texas?? I go to Mexico once a year and this place is the closest to authentic it can get without actually going there. The White chicken Mole is the best anywhere and is only $5!! The only negative I have is that this place is so busy that it can take a while of standing around sipping drinks before you can get a seat. I definitely wouldn't go here for a ""fine dining"" but for good ""authentic"" food and a couple margeritas this is the best!!

This place is not at all like it used to be. The food is thrown together and sometimes not even fresh. The employees are busy talking to one another instead of taking care of customers. The owner will at times when he is drunk kick people out for no reason-we have seen this twice now. We were talking with an employee once and she was telling us about all kinds of drama that goes on there between employees-this is not something that we cared to know about and it reflects poorly on the establishment. Years ago this was a friendly place with great fresh food at a nice price, I don't know what happened to change things, although I must say we have noticed the decline happening slowly over time.

Well, this is an interesting place. The food is very cheap and does not strike me as authentic Mexican in its puriest sense. The reason most folks journey to this place are the cheap margaritas in small glasses...but I imagine after 5 or 6, the food tastes pretty wonderful. If your coming to Milwaukee, and looking for authentic Mexican, you will be better served by going to El Ray Sol or Jal Loco. For great margaritas and good tex-mex fusion, try Hectors.

Why do people think this is Mexican food.This is not authentic mexican food, maybe someone else might think this,but not me or anyone in my family or any of my friends. This is a very cheap place to eat , but I personally did not like it. When I go out to eat I want real good food and this isn't one of those places!

If you want to go somewhere quick and good for dinner or work lunch, this is the place. The food is awesome, especially the steak tacos and the enchiladas. Highly recommended, and so affordable. The food is served on paper plates, so don't expect high class. Milwuakee, in general, has excellent Mexican restaurants. The them all, but don't miss Conijitos.

What can I say, the food is great. If you're looking for excellent Mexican food, good service, and a laid back atmosphere, this is the place for you. The Enchillada's are the best I've ever had. I was looking for years for some good ones and when I found Conejito's, my search ended!

My son loves this place and eats here before/after every Bucks game. It was at his insistence that we eat here one night last week.
The restaurant was a fantastic bargain for our party of ten. With drinks, food and chips, the total bill before tip was $64. However, when it comes to food, this may be a better place for young adults and children than anyone looking for a good dining experience. The food was simply average. I had the chicken mole which was good, but surprised me to find the bones left in the chicken (authentic Mexican I guess).
The margaritas certainly were not the raves that other reviewers talk about. The glass was small, and there was not a lot of tequila but at less than $3 a glass, a great value.
Overall, a nice, inexpensive place for those on a tight budget without discriminating tastes.
