It doesn't surprise me that this place closed. They did it to themselves. Poor management of this place was the cause. We went there several times and each time the food was inconsistent in taste and quality. Example, the salsa was always different! We even had a meal were we could tell some of the food was close to being... More

Stopped in on a Tuesday evening. Only about half dozen tables occupied, however it was early...maybe things pick up a little later. Waitress was very friendly and offered suggestions. The chips and salsa, although not included with meal as seems to be the norm in Mexican restaurants, were well worth the couple extra bucks! Our dinners - burrito for me... More

My family enjoyed a very good meal at Cinco. The staff was friendly and the drinks were delicious. I was a little reluctant to eat here since some of the reviews were bad. I thought the food came out quickly and it was hot. The wait staff couldn't have been nicer,taking time to explain some dishes to my children. Great... More

Forget the Franchise Mexican places. This is the real deal. As close to authenic as it gets. If you want good fresh food at a decent price. Go here.

just returned from our first dinner trip to Cinco's in Upper St. Clair. My wife and I were greeted cheerfully at the door and led to a convenient table. The menu showed a large variety of creative Mexican dishes and salads as well as drinks to accompany the meals. The atmosphere was pleasant and the bar and dining areas were... More

Beware Health Hazard. Place half empty. Took 1 hour to get food. Food came out cold even after I sent it back still not hot. Ask waitress if there was a manager on duty she States he was the one cooking. Now that's scary!!! Steer clear

We purchased a Groupon to try Cinco for the first time. First time will be the last time. When we arrived we were told to sit anywhere and our server would be with us. The place has no decor, and is very plain. We were given our silverware wrapped in a cloth napkin. My napkin smelled like someone clean the... More
