I have eaten at Alebrije many times. The food never disappoints and the service has been fast and friendly. There is a good selection of items from salads to main courses. I will be having dinner there many more times

This is not a fancy restaurant, but if you want good, freshly prepared, not too spicy (unless you want it that way) Mexican food, this is the place in Berks Co. to get it. They always have coupons out too!

Great food, great service - can't go wrong here! Start with the hot sauce and chips, then on to the best chicken burrito in town!

It is a mystery why this restaurant is rated highly. Unfriendly host. Filthy mop carried thru dining room twice. Plate carried with hot pads, but food cold. Sauce disgusting. Horrible experience. Never again.

Alebrije has really delicious, authentic mexican food. Probably the best Mexican food in the area. The service is fast and friendly and you hardly ever have to wait for a table. The salsa is so fresh and probably the best I've ever eaten along with the tortilla chips. The meals are always hot and the food is very inexpensive. They... More

The food is good and when the guy plays the guitar it's nice. When he sings he is WAY TOO LOUD! Well priced and SMALL bar...not really adequate waiting space.

Love the salsa here! It's fresh and delicious. Great enchiladas and fish tacos. The prices are very reasonable for the portion of food served. The service is quick but the servers could be a bit more attentive to customers. Wish the bar area was a bit larger. Overall an excellent place!

Being from Southern CA originally I am very picky about my Mexican food. So to find a place in PA that suits me is quite difficult. Today we ate at Alebrije, which is quite near where we live. I'm not going to tell you this place is as good as where I would frequent back home -- but it is... More

We tried lunch here and it was ok. Service was slow and food was alright, we wouldn't go back because of other choices in area. I wouldn't say don't go, just be ready for an ok meal.
