You can’t judge a salsa by its label.


After roaming the downtown streets of Port Washington, WI, we walked past Beanies Mexican Restaurant after seeing swings at the bar so, of course we stopped in to check it out.

Don’t throw a Cinco de Mayo party without picking up some of their homemade salsa. They make it fresh everyday.

Salsa is the Spanish translation of “sauce,” and throughout Latin America it means literally just that, and can be any one of thousands of different sauces. But when we think of salsa here in the U.S., we tend to think of what we find in a jar in the supermarket (which is actually more of a cooked pico de gallo).


While sipping on your favorite cocktail at the Beanies bar, we recommended a classic Martini or one of their specialty drinks the “Port Washingtontini” which has Cranberry Vodka & Blue Caracao with a splash of sour in a sugar rimmed martini glass.

You are treated to complimentary chips and salsa while swinging in the bar seats. YES. You have the option of the boring traditional bar stool or an actual swing. Beanies has been in business for over 15 years. Thus, they spent many years perfecting their amazing salsa. The salsa was so good we actually ordered 2 jars of it to take home.

We didn’t get a chance to order off the menu as we had other stops to make but if the salsa is any indication of how the food is there, we will definitely be coming back to check it out.
