About Our Restaurant

Most restaurants in Southwestern Wisconsin offer Mexican food with a touch of American style, but Taqueria Monarca in Onalaska, WI, begs to differ. If you wish to have a taste of authentic Mexican cuisine in a nice and welcoming environment, our family-owned restaurant is no doubt the place to be.

We prepare all our dishes on our own using only the finest ingredients, ensuring that these meet your delicate taste. Our dedicated staff wants to give you an amazing and authentic food experience as if you’re in the beautiful land of Mexico.

Our Story

Every meal on the menu is carefully prepared using the traditional and family recipes of the Aguirres, a family from Jalisco, Mexico. After immigrating to the United States, they worked in a restaurant specializing in Mexican cuisine in Marshfield, WI, for a decade. They eventually decided to open up their own restaurant in the city of Onalaska—which is the Taqueria Monarca we all know today.

We combine our more than 20 years of experience in hospitality and culinary and our endless passion for Mexican cuisine to provide you with an authentic Mexican food experience. Our unique Jalisco style of cooking and meticulous food preparation process deliver exquisite meals bursting with amazing flavors. Whether you want to try our specialty tacos, burritos, or other Mexican dishes, we have a variety of delectable options for you!
