Not having dined here before, I followed my companions lead, and ordered the daily special, which that day was a burrito with green sauce. While we were waiting for our food, we nibbled on the awesome free chips and salsa. I was also enlightened as to why the Coca-Cola in Mexico tastes different than the American version, so I ordered the authentic Mexican Coca-Cola bottle. It indeed is a nicer, crisper Coke than I am used to, very pleasant.
The burritos are indeed huge, and although I agree with the former reviewer on here, and concur that it is a bit plain, I can tell that this is authentic Mexican food by a family that is familiar with the cuisine. I will certainly return to try the more fanciful options, as really, the price and tastiness and service cannot be beat. All around a great, clean, friendly place to have a quick, tasty, economical lunch !

Restaurant Review of El Sarape in Green Bay, WI

I stopped in for lunch for some authentic Mexican cuisine at El Sarape which is located on the East side of Green Bay. As I walked in my senses were immediately assailed with a festive atmosphere for all the walls are painted in vivid colors of bright yellows, oranges, reds, and greens with Mexican oil paintings and ornamental Mexican decorations adorning the walls. The interior was done with good taste and was immaculate. By the front door is a small waiting room with a hostess stand and to the left is the dining area which has enough table seating for 150 people. I was brought to my table and before I even took my coat fully off a staff member brought out a basket of tortilla chips with a side of homemade salsa and salsa verde, now that is good service. My server came soon after and brought me a glass of ice water and their menu. As I perused their menu I was surprised to see how many selections they have, it is a vast menu. I decided to order the Sarape Salad for $7.75 and a glass of freshly brewed iced tea with free refills for $1.75.
As I waited for my order I noticed around me everyone’s entrees were huge in portion and they all looked delicious. I was anticipating my salad for I was starting to get hungry from all the wonderful aromas. I sampled my chips and salsa, the chips were fresh and the salsa was very good with nice diced pieces of fresh onions and cilantro, very tasty. The salsa verde was also very fresh with a mild flavor. The ice tea was a nice medium to dark brew and had a wonderful flavor also. My salad arrived and it was quite impressive looking; it was very large with lots of chicken strips and shrimp piled on top with melted cheese and was surrounded on the sides with tomato wedges and twisted pieces of orange and lemon slices. My salad consisted of grilled shrimp, grilled chicken breasts, mushrooms, green peppers, avocados, cheese, and pico de gallo on the side. The shrimp and chicken had been marinated and grilled which gave it a great burst of flavor, the fresh green peppers and avocado were served in large thick slices and everything was put on top of cut up dark green thick pieces of Romaine lettuce. The whole salad was luscious, it all came together wonderfully the pico de gallo was a relish made with a combination of minced onion, fresh cilantro, tomato, fresh jalapenos, hot peppers and lime juice. I liked the fresh mixture of all the ingredients, it made for a nice savory flavor as an accompaniment for my salad. El Sarape is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Bar Review of El Sarape in Green Bay, WI
March 25, 2010
This past week the weather has been amazing. At least amazing to me. It has been perfect tennis playing weather and I think my pasty legs are finally getting some sun. As I said, at least I think. After a day of playing out under the bright star you need some refreshing fruity beverages. Definitions of fruity drinks to my friends mean margaritas. Margaritas and I don't usually play nice together but, I don't know, maybe I was on a sun high or something but I was totally down for one. One of my comrades who proclaims to be a connoisseur of margaritas says that El Sarape have the best ones in town. You could tell me this and I would believe you, as I know nothing about this tequila special BUT I know that people also say Margaritas and Escapades have the best too. Hmmm, sounds like my friends and I needed to investigate.
The El Sarape we attended was on the East side of Green Bay. It's tucked in a strip mall of sorts. Right when you walk in you're greeted with yummy food smells and brightly painted walls. I'm a huge fan of Mexican food, but such wasn't our mission that particular evening. There isn't a bar inside El Sarape but they have many tables, big and small, to accommodate your party. They have all kinds of Mexican flare adorning the walls, which I like; it makes the place look festive and fun. If you're like me and tequila kinda fights you then have no fear, there are plenty of other choices. They also have Pina Coladas for $3.95 and two choices for wine, a white zin or burgundy for $3.25. On the beer side, they have bottles of Coors Light, Bud, Bud Light, Miller Lite, MGD, Hi Life, Heineken, Bohema, Carta Blanca, Pacifico, Tecate, Amber and Especial of Dos Equios and Modelo. The domestics will run you $2.75 and the imports cost $3.25.
My friends all ordered El Sarape's Original Margarita for $5.50 and it comes on the rocks. I chickened out, I saw that the Jose Cuervo is the main ingredient used and at the last minute I changed my mind. I'm sorry!! There is NOTHING wrong with Mr. Cuervo, it's not him, it's me. All me. And now you're wondering, "Well, why did I read this? I don't even know how their drinks taste!" I would have had one of my friends tell you but at this very moment they're back at El Sarape for midday pick-me-up. So, that should tell you something. Also, the fact that they sucked those bad boys down in 5 seconds flat could be another indicator that El Sarape has tasty treats.
Even though I was a wuss we all had a great time, El Sarape charmed us with their cheap drinks and lively atmosphere.
