I've known about this restaurant for many years, but have been hesitant to try it because it is on the edge of some neighborhoods that could be of concern to some.

We were in Erie, PA on business and our evening event was cancelled. We were delighted to find a place that was not booked solid on Valentine's day. We loved everything about the place. It looks a bit scruffy from the outside, but inside it is decorated with the art work of the owner's daughter, and homey furniture. It was... More

I have tried a lot of "authentic Mexican food" in USA but the only real one is here. I ate the "comida corrida" the soup is very similar than my mother made to me and I cook for my daughter (alert: It is so spicy and the portion is small because is as an appetizer not an entree) My puerco... More

First let me say I am a huge food snob. I love to cook and refuse to spend my money dining on something I know that I can make better. Secondly, when it comes to Mexican food I have a very high standard from living in Arizona and eating fabulous meals in the mothers' kitchens of many of my Mexican... More

Hola all, We are from Toronto and visit Erie this time annually. My partner found a coupon online for this gem of a restaurant and we tried it out. We were warmly greeted and seated by the owner. Daily specials were given and we opted to order off the main menu. Food was authentic and delicious. We started with chips... More

Nice, quite atmosphere with lovely staff. The food was very authentic with great flavor. I assume in reading the reviews some guests may have expected the traditional salty and or spicy Mexican food with a low price tag attached. The food is higher in price because the ingredients are better in quality. The owner was very friendly and is clearly... More

OMGosh, I feel horrible about giving ths restaurant a bad review, but in all honesty, cannot give more than a one star. Maybe it was an off day for them To begin with, when we arrived, there was nobody there except two employees. We were seated and given a menu by a very niceLatino lady. We choose our entrees, we...

Barbara, Honestly, when I originally saw your review, I got very upset and annoyed. However, I had just come back from swimming with dolphins in Cancun, Mexico. Therefore, I opted to ignore your post until now. That being said, I would now like to set the record straight. Firstly, I must assume that you were upset because we automatically charged... More

Fabulous guacamole - the best. Soup was a weak minestrone (odd choice for a Mexican place) - thin broth, elbow macaroni, frozen mixed vegetables, plus cayenne. Nice (small) salad. Entrees - cilantro chicken was good. Carne Asada was pretty bad - dry, gristly, flavorless. Worst I have ever had. Service was fine, and the place was nice enough. But only... More

We used a groupon and still paid over $45 for our meal (Total $65)? We both cleaned our plates as they were very modest in size and to be honest we both a tad hungry when we left. I had a margarita which was good but not $10.25 good. I paid that for a margarita in Epcot for pete's sake!... More

So happy we found this place! On a recent trip to Erie we wanted to go somewhere other than Longhorn, Applebees, Olive Garden etc...so I hopped on Yelp and took a look and Latino's got our business that night! Super easy to find and easy parking on the street made it even better. We were seated right away and met... More
