The quesadillas and margaritas we had made for a perfect start to our Door County vacation. It was more food than expected and quite tasty. Definitely a great value. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

3 of us went for dinner and had a absolutely wonderful meal. We had steak taco meal, veggie combination dish and a child's quesadilla plate. There was plenty of food and it was delicious. Our server was very attentive. Definitely give this place a try...and don't forget the Margarita!More

First meal in Door County area. Not a lot of choices on a Sunday night. Happy Old Mexico was open. Ordered, beef and tilapia tacos, steak quesadilla, and nachos platter. All food was very good. Make sure to let staff know what you don't want...on your nachos platter. Staff was hard working. Guacamole was good and made tableside. No issue with loud music on our visit. Our family would go back.More

I had the shrimp platter, with three kinds of shrimp, and I found it very enjoyable. We had excellent service, and the margaritas were festively presented.

We first ate at Old Mexico back in May 2019, during a visit to Door County. I rated it five stars. Now we've had a second visit to Door County, and ate again at this restaurant. I give it four stars this time. The food...was good. We all enjoyed our dishes. Service was attentive. Music was loud and annoying. Overall "very good," not "excellent."More

Really great authentic Mexican food. The atmophere is good and the service is outstanding! If you like guacamole, I suggest that you have the fresh made. They made it right at my table while I was watching.

Excellent margarita. Food was fair. I think it would have been better with a different selection. I had the nachos carnitas and expected steak but they were pork. They were ok. Husband had something served in half a pineapple. Again ok.

Loved everything about this place from the table side freshly prepared guacamole to the awesome steak tacos and the margaritas. Staff is very attentive and all work very hard to make your dining experience a pleasant one. Will definitely return.

Carlos and David were AWESOME waiters-very pleasant and attentive. The house Margaritas and shrimp tacos were DIVINE. We’ve been in Door for over 20 years and this was our first stop in- our mistake. Really good vibe. Don’t miss it while you’re in Door!

Lunch on a weekday What we liked, in no particular order: 1. Plenty of free parking 2. Friendly greeting by host 3. Friendly, attentive, competent waiter 4. Wide variety on the menu 5. Perfectly balanced sweet-tart margarita. I'm a margarita nut. I order this drink...wherever I go and take off points if it's too sweet, too tart, or too expensive. The one I had at OM was perfect in every way. And a nice touch: It comes in three sizes, the amount of which is in ounces and is clearly printed on the menu with the associated cost. Usually I ask how big the largest or smallest is when I'm in a restaurant, and the server can only say "Oh about this big" and uses hand motions as a descriptive. And rarely does a server know the price. OM's info on the menu was refreshing indeed. 6. The dining room is charming, decorated in murals, a predictable Latin theme, but nice. 7. Music is not too loud. 8. Restrooms are clean. 9. Food is delicious. 10. You can get fresh guacamole made at tableside, though we did not order this. 11. Prices are reasonable. What we didn't like: No free WiFi. They have WiFi in the facility but don't give out the password. Ordinarily this isn't a problem for us because we have Verizon LTE. But Verizon didn't work at all at the restaurant. My husband and I missed having the use of our phones during the meal. I like writing my review before I leave the restaurant so the info is fresh in my mind. This wasn't possible with no Internet. Would we return? Oh absolutely yes.More

I have eaten here in the past and was very impressed. This visit not so much. The guacamole at the table had much too much cilantro . The margaritas were bitter and the so called steak was clearly pot roast that was spiced like a...pot roast. The beans were canned and the rice was not rice. I know COVID has struck these restaurants so I may give this one a pass this time but I hope they can clean up their actMore

Communication was the biggest issue our server was not English speaking/ or just brand new to the job. The food was not hot and tasteless. Table side quacmole awful. The worst I ever had. The hot table Salas I requested was the only good thing.... But it wasn’t worth $40.00 plus a 15% tip.More

It's on the outskirts of town so it's less crowded. Quick service, and has many tables. We really liked their guacamole dip. Many menu items to choose from. We ate there twice during our stay and everything we had was good.

First the food was good, but not what we have been used to. For example, the tacos were soft shell and the cheese was white, not yellow. The Tacos de Brazas were VERY spicy, while the Burrito Supreme was very mild. Prices are reasonable, the...Margaritas are huge (and, again, the flavor was nnot what I was used to -- my husband said that they used more tequila than we're used to.) Service was VERY good, but the place was too noisy for a normal conversation. There is a nice patio, however, but we didn't notice it until we left, or we probably would have sat outside. All in all, although it wasn't great, it certainly wasn't bad, either -- and we will probably be back as Mexican food places in Door County are rare, to say the least.More
