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 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.

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
