ABSOLUTELY THE BEST MEXICAN FOOD NORTH OF THE BORDER

Just FANTASTIC Mexican food. It was the most authentic Mexican food we have had in years. Reminds me of my trips to Mexico in the 1970's.

On way to Glacier NPS in MT and came upon this restaurant. Located off the main drag next to the General store. Had 20 minute wait but was well worth the wait. My wife had the Chile Relleno and had the house special tequila with orange on chicken breast. Excellent Chicken meal, chicken was not dry.

We ate at Serrano's at the recommendation of some locals. They knew what they were talking about. Nice deck out back. We arrived at opening (5PM) and there was a crowd gathered to get in. There was room for everyone and the wait staff handled the full house efficiently. My companion got the daily special which was a tofu dish... More

Despite of the fact that we stayed in the Glacier Lodge itself we preferred not to eat in the lodge. The guests in the Lodge restaurant and the bar appeared to be some kind of snobby. Hence, we went to the small village of East Glacier. Serrano's was exactly the place that we were looking for: straightforward, simple, nice people... More

The restaurant was packed. You do have to put your name on a wait list but the wait was well worth it. They do not take reservations so come before you are hungry. The portions were bigger than I expected but it was fabulous.

Having eaten at Serrano's a few times during our stay two years ago, we thought we'd better get there early during our recent stay in East Glacier. Definitely need to go on the early side if you can. It gets packed later in the evening!

In this small town in middle of nowhere Montana, this might be the best Mexican restaurant I've ever eaten at, and I've lived in Texas before. The ingredients are so fresh; I can't imagine how or where they get them from. This place is super popular, so get there early or else stand in line. There is nothing that will... More

while traveling with 4 grandchildren it is difficult to find a restaurant that will please everyone. so imagine my surprise when we stopped in at Serrano's after having to take a LONG detour due to wildfires in Glacier park. Everyone of the four ordered quickly from the many choices on the menu and voted the salsa the best they had... More
