We were looking for some good Tex-Mex in Geneva and thought this was the place. We were disappointed. The rice was instant, the chips were on the greasy side and the dishes were so unmemorable we don´t remember. Que lastima!

I find I've become a regular here for their lunch specials. Handy location, and good Mexican brings me back. Service is always friendly, and your order is back quick (but not fast food) gets me back to work ontime.

Sergio's has a sort of Beach party vibe going on. Good margarita selection, big portions and fun menu. Geneva is full of trendy, hip Mexican style restaurants with artisan tacos and deep rhythmic club music. This is not that, so if you just want a solid Mexican meal, this is your place.

My wife and I stopped in for a Friday lunch. It took nearly 15 minutes for our server to get us menus and take our drink order. It didn't get much better from there. The chips and salsa tasted "store bought". Nothing seemed authentic and to top it off the music was loud and obnoxious. We had been there before.... More

If you're looking for Margarita's, Beer, chips and salsa, in a fun environment, visit here. If you're looking for authentic, Mexican food, this is not your first choice. There are so many authentic, local and chef driven Mexican choices in the area, I'm always somewhat amazed they continue to draw crowds. They do have a great corner, which could be... More

Small place, but amazing food! Me and my sister always split the grande margarita (can probably be shared amongst 3 or 4 people) we do fine just the two of us though! Best steak chimichanga I've ever had. Can get pretty busy and packed quickly so we always call ahead. Would definitely recommend!

Decided to give this place a try. Service was awesome! The fish tacos I ordered were dekicious! My only complaint is that the Chipotle mayo was drizzled over all 3 tacos instead of just on each individual taco. Made it a bit sloppy! But they were yummy!The complimentary chips and Salsa were very tasty as well. Unfortunately we weren't offered... More

Love it here. Really good service at the bar or a table. The Margaritas are very good and will get you where you want to go in two. There is free parking in a small lot just to the West,
