Bye bye Mexicali Rose

Grocery stores, recipes, cook books, CSAs, farmers' markets, organic, local, processed, corporate. It's a smorgabord!

Bye bye Mexicali Rose

The sign said last weekend was their last.
I'd heard they let their insurance lapse, knew the end was near. Quite a change from the rumors of 18 months ago that they were going to open 3 more restaurants in Madison.

Sorry, I was never impressed by their food, prices, or service.

That was fast. I guess the Cottage Grove Rd. crowd isn't down for shlock the same way Dells visitors are.

I'd never consider going there with Antojitos el Toril just on the other side of 51.

Good riddance. Now could somebody do us a favor and paint over that monstrous Pepto-Bismol colored eyesore ?

Exactly! Totally different clientèle.

Eyesores work in the Dells, not here.

Their food was complete crap - some of the worst "Mexican" food I've ever had. I guess the year-round x-mas lights didn't do the trick.
