When you want Mexican--this place delivers

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.

I have been to Alebrije a number of times. I have had a fantastic experience each time. The food is fantastic. There is a wide variety of choices available on the menu. The service is great. The price is good too. I highly recommend Alebrije.

If you are hungry for Mexican and want a quick bite, you'll find it here. It's a safe choice for those who like predictable Mexican food. The table side guacamole is a stand out and delicious.

This was our first time eating here and with my in-laws who suggested it. We were so surprised at the taste of the food. It compared to some of our favorite Mexican restaurants. We came up from Virginia for the Holidays. The atmosphere was very relaxing. You could have a conversation without having to repeat yourself or yell. The staff... More

The food is great and the prices are very affordable. The service is quick, we did not have to wait long for our food even for a Friday night.

Here you can get a taste of several types of Mexican dishes or treats, as they offer assortments. If you have a favorite it is also available. Prices are good and service is on the mark. Bar pricing is fair and offer's good choices. Good for couples and family, a fun stop clean and tasty.

I went here with my boss for a business dinner. I had a margarita on the rocks- Yum! I had the fajitas, which were so delicious. The veggies were fresh and cooked just right and so was the chicken. The sides were also good. I ordered guacamole to be prepared tableside as listed on the menu - it wasn't, but... More

I had not eaten here for years since my husband is not a fan of Mexican food. He finally agreed to "humor" me and have lunch here. The only redeeming factor is that we both had inexpensive $5.99 lunch specials. Our lunch special was a chili relleno which was soggy and drenced in watery tomato sauce, a beef taco -... More
