Loved the fajitas!

I met my daughter here for a weeknight dinner with my free birthday entree coupon from the Big Burrito group. Parking is terrible for this location, but we finally found spots for both cars. The inside of this restaurant is VERY dark so I didn't think I would be able to see the menu! We got a booth... read more

I love Mad Mex and so will you. Burrito is beefy and delicious. I recommend the spicy steak which features a spicy chipotle sauce drizzled on top in the form of their logo. Awesome Mexican chain about to run wild on the United States!

I visit Mad Mex everything I am in Pittsburgh. Great menu and good vegan choices too. Never been a fan of the Marg's, but the beer selection is great.

A lot of great burritos and beers to go with them. The Angry Hippie is excellent! Order it with the Chimmi sauce on the side.

This restaurant is getting worse. The food is just not as good as it used to be (sweet sauce on tofu in a taco?!). The tortillas of the burritos are soggy and pasty. The rice has the taste and texture of rice-a-roni; the black beans have no flavor whatsoever. The only good thing was the guacamole...but the chips are just... More

Having never eaten in this place, I was greatly surprised by the quality of the food. Had the Veggie Burrito, and the size of the portion was out of the world. I was told that when I saw my meal I would be take by surprise and was I ever. It was stuffed with rice, onion, peppers, beans, mushrooms and... More

Mad Mex is generally a reliable standby--not great, but certainly good plus. However, the standards do seem to be slipping a bit in the kitchen. The fish tacos were OK--except for the so-called fish. There was something chewy, dry, & fried inside the tortilla, but it seemed more the texture of fish food rather than fish. It had almost no... More

We used to like the restaurant -- it was consistently good. We were disappointed by our last visit. The chips that came w/ the salsa were crumbled and broken; I think they saved the end of the bag for us. The entrées were OK -- nothing special (I had fajitas, my daughter had a chicken burrito). My wife had chick... More

This place has options for those who love authentic mexican fare as well as people who just want some of their 'Los Wingos' - unabashedly inauthentic but awesome nevertheless. For hardcore foodies there is a huge selection of more traditional options including burritos, enchiladas, fajitas, and much more. Great flavor profile - however they don't offer super fiery spice levels... More
