Friendly place with good prices

I ate there with five other women and the food was very good and the wait staff was friendly. They are very centrally located in Wyomissing Pennsylvania.

Of all the other Mexican restaurants in the area I feel this restaurant has the most authentic food. If you have never been there give it a try you won't be disappointed.

The food is fresh and authentic. Busy place, the servers could be better schooled in English and the menu as their clientele is English speaking

The best Mexican food in Berks County. The new tastefully decorated dining room is open and inviting. The servers are always gracious and helpful. My favorite is the Burritos Alebrije. A nice selection of entrees is available. I always add some non alcoholic sangria!

As always the food was as tasty. We got here a bit before dinner 4:00pm because of an early appointment. The waitress did a eye roll when we asked about the live guacamole. I get it but not my families fault you don't have enough staff!

Stopped in for a "quick" dinner and was pleasantly surprised with interior updates. (about a year since last here) Salsa is simply amazing - reminds me of my family's homemade salsa. Food was delicious and service was friendly. This place has yet to disappoint, always glad that I stopped in.

Often a customer at the "other" Alebrije in Muhlenberg township, which has a lovely interior that is reminescent of Mexico at Epcot, going to the Perkiomen avenue Alebrije is depressing. Food is just as good but surroundings are fast food restaurant. Don't go there very much do to this.

I have visited their store on 5th Street many times and thoroughly enjoyed each visit. The Perkiomen Avenue location was a test to see if they are consistent in all three stores. The server was very pleasant and she knew the menu. I order something different each time. Once again the quality of the food was excellent and the service... More

I was truly surprised at just how bad this dining experience was. When we called to place our reservation, we asked if the rice and beans were vegan, they said yes. When we got there, we double-checked, and were told the rice was not vegan. Then, when I ordered my meal, I asked the server is a sauce she was... More
