Reviews of Laredo's

Been coming here for years, absolutely loved their horchatas, nachos and tacos and salsa. But they recently changed their menus along with a price increase and the flavor of their horchatas and tacos are not the same. Lost the flavor. They changed alot of the servers as well. I'm very sad, because we truly did love this place. But went there twice since the change and it is not good. :(

ordered over the phone. Repeated the order 3 times. They still got it wrong. Would never ever set foot in the place again!!!

To clarify the comment from the guy who said he was "assaulted by a mexican gang" I was the bartender that night and saw the entire thing happen. It started with this guy and his friends, a wedding party from a southern state who were in Wisconsin for the wedding, making racist and derogatory comments in Laredo's bar. Mind you, the bar was busy and was probably 50% mexican people that night. And I personally knew 90% of the people in that fight and I can tell you it was no "gang". that itself is hilarious. All I can say is that if you go looking for trouble, and add the intoxication level of these southern boys, you will find trouble. They started that fight and apparently their fists couldn't do the same work their mouths were. This has nothing to do with Laredo's or mexican people, it has to do with stupidity and ignorance that unfortunately often leads to unnecessary violence. Hopefully you were able edit the cuts and bruises out of your wedding photos.

Being from Texas, I can safely assume what is and isn't good Mexican food. It's not easy to find it up here, but Laredo's is pretty good. First off, the salsa is incredible. It's fresh made, loaded with cilantro but not heavy on any one particular spice. The menu options are quite varied and there are a lot. The fajitas are quite good, come in a huge portion compared to local competition and actually sizzle (unlike some other places). The enchiladas are incredible as well, ranging from vegetarian, to seafood to beef and chicken, with multiple sauce options. There are several desserts, including an absolutely delicious cheesecake chimi. Service is hit or miss, but never bad. They keep your drinks filled and bring the food in a timely manner. Understanding your waiter shouldn't be a problem, I've never had to deal with communication issues before. All in all, good mexican food for being so far from home.

Eat at your own risk! Me and several of my friends were assaulted by a mexican gang as we left the restaurant. Females were shoved to the ground and males were assaulted with beer bottles and workout weights. I myself took 8 stitches.

I agree with the reviewer who said they are trying to cut costs. Laredo's has been my favorite mexican restaurant for a few years now and was always a good standby, however the last 3 times I've visited (twice to whitney way, once to lien rd) the food just isn't the same. First I noticed it in the ground beef - with the whitney way location, the beef had barely any flavor and at the lien rd location had an entirely different flavor from usual. Also, the salsa seemed watered down and the refried beans were different too.<br /> <br /> So disappointing, especially since I don't know what my second choice would even be for mexican food here.

Ever since Laredo's first came to Madison it has been one of my favorite Mexican places. Not only because of the good food but the good prices and service. I hate to say Laredo's has fallen victim to trying to cut back food quality and service to save a buck. But, at the same time, raising their prices. It started about a year ago when they started adding chunks of potatoes to their meat to try and stretch it to go further. Now, they have slipped some other unknown filler into the meat along with the potatoes to stretch it further. The nacho cheese that they used to serve on the burritos had a wonderful taste in the beginning but now they have replaced it with something that represents artificial cheese. We did receive our meal within probably one minute after putting our order in but we were NEVER offered refills on our drinks and I'm sad to say the Laredo's I grew to love no longer exists and I honestly don't think I can ever go back. Good luck if you go there.
