Reliable Great Tex-Mex

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

This is one of our go to places. The grilled corn, which is a seasonal menu item, is sweet and a spices at the same time. If you order a salad try the cilantro dressing. My children love the kiddo burritos. During happy hour from 4:30-7:30 they have half priced wings. I recommend the San Fran wings. They also have... More

Went with family for good Mexican food...we found it at Mad Mex! Chips were warm and salted right. Salsa was a bit thick for my taste and a bit bland, but ok. Dinner was a chicken and sweet corn burrito from the seasonal menu. This thing was HUGE! Absolutely delicious! Lots of cilantro and sweet corn mixed with the chicken... More
