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

I live in LA and I still say this is the best mexican food I've ever had. I'll fly to Pittsburgh just for this place!

There are several Mexican Restaurants along McKnight Road in the North Hills, this one is the best. My family and I have gone here many times and I've never had a bad meal. The Mole sauce is one of the best I've had. The meat is always tender and moist, salsa and chips are great. Lunch is really reasonable!

There aren't many Mexican places in Pittsburgh, and this is one of the better ones.

As a former SoCal girl, I can't seem to find decent Mexican food on the East Coast very easily, so imagine my delight when I stumbled across El Campesino at Robinson-at-the-Pointe, in Pittsburgh, PA on a recent business trip. El Campesino is located at the end of a succession of strip malls off of Exit 1 on Route 60 and... More
