Los Tres Amigos, a new restaurant, is slated to open in the Walker Square neighborhood on the southside of Milwaukee.

And it is in fact being opened by tres (three) amigos. One of the owners, Edgar Estrada Segura told Urban Milwaukee he’s opening it with two of his friends Noel Lopez Rodriguez and Noel Melgar Rodriguez Selvin.

Segura met Rodriguez and Selvin when he visited a restaurant with his wife and was so blown away by the food he asked to personally thank the cooks. A pastor, Segura invited them to his church and they’ve been friends ever since.

Segura said Rodriguez and Selvin are amazing cooks that have always dreamed of owning a restaurant. When they found out the space at 1401 W. Washington St. was available, Segura decided to join them in pursuing their dream.

Los Tres Amigos will serve traditional, authentic Mexican food, Segura said, including dishes served in a Molcajete, a Mexican stone mortar, fajitas and a salad, called the Pastors Salad, created by Segura.

He said they are hoping to have the restaurant open by the middle of June.

Their location on W. Washington Ave. was most recently a Mexican and Honduran restaurant called El Rincon Catracho. The multi-story, 4,244-square-foot building was built in 1890 and has a mix of commercial and residential space. It is owned by Taqueria El Cabrito owner Francisco Salazar.
