Mexicali Rose has been around since 1979 and is a Dells favorite. The deep menu is typical Mexican fare: tacos, quesadillas, enchiladas, carnitas, flaming fajitas. Fried ice cream and sopadillas are available for dessert.
The food is tasty, but is American-Mexican fare as opposed to the more authentic Mexican eats you score nearby. Nothing wrong with that, but just so you know.
Adult drink selections include Mexican and American beers, wine and several margarita choices.
The restaurant is quite spacious, with several large rooms and a bar. There’s also some patio dining overlooking the Wisconsin River out back.
Mexicali Rose has an extensive tequila selection.
There are two daily happy hours: an early one and a late one.
