Two dollar Tacos!

The atmosphere is intriguing. Nice place to go before a play downtown or for a reliable meal before an event.

Sofrito Veggie taco

The $2.00 tacos are a steal. We were looking for a quick meal before a show at the PAC and were not disappointed. We could all order something different…multiple items, in fact. Taste is good; price is exceptional.


Looking for Great Mexican food...Vagabond is it

Downtown dining week in Milwaukee, led our group to The Vagabond. The atmosphere is really unique with an Airstream Travel Trailer as part of their bar. Surprisingly it was not that buzy, so service was fast. They offered an appetizer, entree, drink and dessert for a set menu price. The tacos were phenomenal, with over 15 different kinds. I also thought the Margarita was one of the best I have had. The restaurant has specials during the week for $2 tacos!

Duck Carnitas taco

I had 3 tacos, the duck, Argentina steak and Mahi Mahi. All were delicious. Served with Chili Rice that had a kick to it. Dessert was a chocolate brownie with sriracha.

Street Tacos

Went to Vegabond with a group of fellow diners. It was such a nice evening that we were able to sit out on the patio. The great thing about the patio is that it’s enclosed, but yet has that open feel (roof, but windows open, even has a heater). The only downfall I would have to say about the patio is that the chairs are not very comfortable. Now, on to the good part – the food! I opted to get 3 tacos, and that came with free beans and rice. The tacos are not your regular tacos, but elevated street tacos. I selected the sofrito veggie, duck carnitas, and the mango shrimp. One was better than the next, so I couldn’t even pick a favorite! I would definitely go back!

Sofrito Veggie taco

Sofrito Veggie taco – loaded with veggies, queso fresco and very flavorful.

Duck Carnitas taco

Duck Carnitas taco – what’s better that duck confit, orange segments, cabbage, and other duck goodies?! WOW!

Mango Shrimp taco

Mango Shrimp taco – such a great combination of sweet and savory, and no skimping on the shrimp!

I would NEVER go back there again!

While dining at Rudy's Mexican Restaurant, my companion bit into a METAL SPRING which was in the Chicken Burrito. The spring was about the size of a small spring insert from a mechanical pen. Upon reporting this to the server, she got the…

Worst Mexican Food EVER!

We were in Milwaukee this week and decided to try Rudy's for lunch. I had the tortilla soup, it arrived cold, looked old, and it tasted like old salsa and chips, stomach acid and a can of Campbells Tomato soup. It was inedible. My…
