Food at El Campesino off of McKnight is the closest I've found in the Pittsburgh area to food I've eaten in Mexico (Reynosa, in addition to some more touristy places) and in New Mexico (Taos). One of my favorite dishes to order at any Mexican restaurant is chilis rellenos (or chilis poblanos, as El Campesino calls them), and Campesino's are... More

I thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. The margaritas are massive and taste pretty great and the food is super authentic Mexican fare. Two thumbs up!

Once we were seat my server asked what she can get us to drink. I say "well I understand you guy's have great Margaritas, so we want a pitcher!" She brings it to us and I excitedly taste our drink. I was utterly disappointed. I could taste no alcohol what so ever. I call my server back over and tell... More

When it comes to Mexican food there are not a lot of choices in Pittsburgh. I have tried just about all of them, but keep coming back to El Campesino. Not because it is fantastic, but because so far it seems to be the best we have. After being seated it took several minutes for our waiter Carlos to bring... More

El Campesino is located in a shopping center on McKnight Road north of downtown Pittsburgh. The decor is funky carved wooden furniture and various knick-knacks from Mexico. Service is pretty good. There's a reasonable selection of draft American and Mexican beers. I wasn't too impressed by the food which is pretty much your standard East Coast Mexican fare, not too... More

The restaurant has an upbeat atmosphere and is very clean. The service was friendly and the service was fast. The food was great. I enjoyed the white cheese dip, salsa, and the fajita chicken salad. My mom thought the beef taco and the chicken and cheese enchiladas were very good. The prices are very reasonable. I would definitely go back.

This is another place on McKnight Rd, which is just past the Babcock exit, and therefore slightly out of the midst of things. The Dining Room is a bit cramped, but strikingly furnished, the service is very courteous, and remarkably quick, and everything seems quite clean. There is a separate Bar with ample seating and TV is available. Now for... More

Always loved the El Campesino in Monroeville so I was happy when they put this one in closer to where I live. I have eaten here more than 10 times and never had a bad meal. The service is quick, the chips are hot, the salsa is tasty. If you eat all the chips, they bring you more. The portions... More
