Los Compadres 705 Appleton Rd Menasha, WI 3825 East Calumet Appleton, WILos Compadres promises “the best margaritas in town,” and to a fair degree, they deliver.
What Los Compadres excels in is their cooking, and they seal the bargain with an exquisite salsa recipe. There is an addictive quality to their cooking that is almost suspicious.
The only possible improvement would be a more prompt delivery of their chips and salsa, since you’ll probably eat those faster than the servers can replenish them.
If you are willing to drive six minutes from campus for Mexican food, there is no other choice.
Se¤or Tequila 531 W. College Ave Appleton, WI
Unlike Los Compadres, Se¤or Tequila was not stingy with the chips and salsa. There was one person whose job it was to refill these staples, and he was very prompt.
The salsa at Los Compadres is preferable, but that did not stop me from eating every last bit offered to me at Se¤or Tequila.
Unfortunately, Se¤or Tequila leaves something to be desired with regards to the speed at which the food is delivered. The slow service may be attributed to the fact that it is a relatively new operation.
These minor problems are more than made up for by the fact that Se¤or Tequila is located within walking distance of campus and offers excellent food at a reasonable price.
Casa Mexico 107 W College Ave 4001 W Spencer St Appleton, WI
Casa Mexico is yet another restaurant that surfaced during the recent Mexican cuisine explosion in the Appleton area.
The food is pretty decent, and it is also the closest on the list to campus.
If your standards aren’t too high and you don’t feel like walking far, Casa Mexico is almost certain to please.
El Azteca N474 Eisenhower Dr 201 W Northland Ave Appleton, WI
The food is decent but by no means extraordinary, and the prices are similar to the aforementioned restaurants. The chips and salsa are nothing special, and the dcor is gaudy at best. Service is also average.
The bottom line is that nothing about this place compelled me to want to go back. Check out the previous listings instead.
Taco Bell 3221 Express Ct 2810 N Richmond St 2840 W College Ave 301 W Wisconsin Ave Appleton, WI
Arguably better than starving to death, Taco Bell made our list simply because it’s open late and it’s fast. Everyone knows this place, so there isn’t much need to delve into specifics.
Grade F meat for rock-bottom prices. What more could one ask for in an eating establishment?
