Great home-style cooking

Excellent service from the very knowledgeable owner. Had vegetarian and vegan options. We had a fantastic time and would go again next time we're visiting Erie.

I've eaten here a number of times, and it is the only place hands down that has an authentic mole. Every other menu item is authentic and tasty. It never disappoints. The decor could use some updating, and it is very pricey. Otherwise, it is top notch.

My husband & I have been to this restaurant several times. On the upside, it is THE place to go for authentic Mexican here in Erie. The guacamole with house made chips is outstanding. The soup is always fresh & flavorful with a kick. I always get the mole, while the sauce is complex & delicious, the portion size seems... More

Not a fancy place, but authentic. Prices are higher than average, run of the mill Mexican restaurants, but the menu is much more interesting and the sauces are more complex. The only thing wrong with the mole was the chicken tasted old and tired, maybe a bit too authentic, but it was on the dry side. The sauce it's self... More

Authentic Mexican food found in a wonderful family restaurant in Erie, PA. A different special is offered each day so will never be bored with you food choice. Standard menu choices are excellent. Pleasant decor. Owner serves as your personal server. A restaurant that you could visit frequent.

Latino's offers authentic Mexican food. We headed here after a failed ski trip at Peek N Peak (it was raining) and were quite happy to discover the restaurant. The enchiladas were fantastic. We will definitely return. There are 40%-50% discounts available through Groupon from time to time.

Were in Erie for a baseball tournament. Went off the main drag to Latinos. What a treat. Some of the best good I've ever had. It's a little pricey for Mexican buy it's not your run of the mill taco shop. Started with chips, salsa and guacamole. Pricey but worth it. Comes with a couple different salsas which had great...

Pros: Delicious Mexican food and authentic. Wonderful staff. Warm atmosphere. Great Mexican decorations. Cons: Food was pricey 4.95 for tortilla chips (which most places give for free), 9.95 for a mojito (small and just ok) It was great food but you are looking at around 17-20 bucks for a dinner per person which I thought was expensive for the area.

Me and my friend went while we were in Erie. Nice cantina atmosphere. Lovely staff that made sure that we enjoyed 100% our evening. The food was amazing, great authentic Mexican food. No "tex-mex" garbage, just the real deal. We will come back for sure one day !
