Once again, Milwaukeeans picked Botanas, 816 S. 5th St., as being a cut above the other Mexican restaurants in town.

Almost always bustling, the massive Botanas continues to deliver good food, lighting fast. (Sometimes too fast?)

In addition to traditional Mexican cuisine, Botanas also has an impressive seafood menu including spectacular fish tacos and signature shrimp soup served with Mexican rice.

The atmosphere is colorful, lively and fun for all ages, from families to out-on-the-towners.
