Quite Good Mexican

I had the Fajita combination (chicken, beef, shrimp). It was served with the usual fare of beans & rice, along with guacamole salad and soft tortilla shells. The chips and salsa was quite good. Service was very good and prompt

My son suggested this place for a late lunch early dinner; there was no crowd to speak of so seating and service was prompt. The Super Quessadila was good. The rice was dry and a third of the plate was covered in chopped lettuce with a dollop of guacamole. The entry itself was hot and flavorful but the steak knife... More

I reviewed El Campesino before and gave it an average rating. I mentioned some points for the recommendation, such as slow service etc. Well I tried it again today (went alone this time) and happy to say the food is still good. The service was still a bit slow (I sat at my table for 5 minutes before being acknowledged).... More

This Texas transplant is not overly optimistic in finding a good Tex-Mex restaurant in the middle of the Keystone state. Fortunately, we didn't have to travel far from our Coraopolis home to find a place where we could enjoy a very good ( albeit somewhat expensive margarita) and truly cold Coronas. Chips and salsa were placed quickly on our table... More

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
