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!

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

My fiance and I are Mexican foodies so we decided to stop into Alebrije's, I had heard good things about it. The booths were spacious, but that's where it ends. The table was dirtier than any I've seen. We wiped it with a napkin and there was black grime on it. In addition, looking at the menu, the prices are... More

Zero flavor. Guacamole live avocados rotten. Could tell by the taste. I eat at least one avacado a day. Can't say there is any good Mexican type food in Reading or Wyomissing. Taco bell has better flavor and is consistent. The chef should taste their own food. You want awesome authentic Mexican food, if ever in Rockland county NY check... More

They've updated the menu recently and you'll see some new dishes but may miss some of the old ones. I couldn't find the tamales or the chile rellenos. But once we asked the server she was happy to provide what we needed. The prices are higher than before but still reasonable.

The traditional Mexican dishes were numerous. You can chose any combination or just select a dinner selection. Margaritas are not to be missed. Service was so fast that we barely finished our never-ending chips and tasty salsa.
