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

This is always a go to for lunch. All of the locations have fast and friendly service. The food is consistently good. It's always clean and the atmosphere is always upbeat.

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
