Best in the area

Authentic Mexican fare at reasonable prices. The service is generally good, and it is by far the best Mexican food in the area. Well done folks!

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

After reading the last review, I was concerned. We live an hour from Reading and had business there today, so we tried the new location for lunch. We had the same high quality of food and service we came to expect at the old location. We almost always eat there when we get in the area. Have given up other... More

The new decor rocks! Contemporary Mexican - think of a resort in Cancun. The menu is reliable & authentic! Servers are really nice and fast! One critique: I would like fresh brewed iced tea.

this review is for the New Wyomissing location, since that location is not on TA. We have been going to Alebrije since it had 1 location. The new restaurant was a huge disappointment. The staff was disengaged- we had to remind them to seat us, called back our waitress several times, etc. I would think everyone would be smiles in... More

I don't know what some of these other reviewer's are talking about that is dirty and bland food. We go there frequently at least once every two weeks. I've been to many Mexican restaurants over the years and I've traveled to Mexico quite frequently at one point my career. I think this is the best Mexican restaurant in the area.... More

We ate here an average of once a week when living in the same township.(recently having moved across Reading, we now dine at another of the Alebrije locations). We have been pleased with all of our selections from their menu, which also includes Vegetarian dishes for people like myself. The Margueritas are excellent! Decor is festive. The staff is friendly,... More
