OCONOMOWOC — Longtime Oconomowoc residents will often think of the building at 511 E. Wisconsin Ave. as the former Burger King, but it recently opened up for the second time as a Mexican restaurant. Replacing Mi Hacienda Real is Mazatlan Authentic Mexican Restaurant. The owners have added an outdoor seating area and updated the exterior of the building.

Calls to the restaurant for comment were not returned. Its Facebook page lists drink and food specials, such as seafood fajitas and chimichangas.

It’s the second Lake Country location for Mazatlan, which has another restaurant in downtown Delafield.

Another longtime restaurant space on Main Street has a new name and a new menu. Bootz Belly replaces Burnt Toast at 113 S. Main St. The phone number listed on its Facebook page is not a real number, but the page lists the restaurant as a “locally owned, family friendly diner.”

Benny Islami, who operated Burnt Toast, recently opened Buca at 515 E. Wisconsin Ave.

Unfortunately, the German Bar on Main Street has closed and a “for lease” sign hangs on it despite the German Christmas Market of Oconomowoc being just weeks away.

Building owner Bob Felker did not return a call for comment. According to the German Bar’s Facebook page, the price has been reduced to $30,000 for the business. The May 18 post says a two-year minimum lease is required and included in the sale is the equipment, fixtures and inventory.
