The food here is great! However, you are forced to sit in chairs which are something out of a medieval torture chamber! We were told they were designed and built by the owner of the restaurant. The food is a bit pricey but worth the extra money. Not sure why they feel the need to charge extra for another small... More

Drove to York planning to go to another establishment, which turned out to be closed. Searched for "Mexican" on the GPS and ended up here. Not much to look at from the outside, but we went in a gave it a try. Good iced tea. Salsa was superb! Very fresh -- wonderful flavors. Gaucamole was nice, lots of avocado chunks... More

Were there for lunch - everyone was happy with their meal. Nice choice with some mild and other spicey hot choices. Service was very good. Love the Listerine in the bath room to lose that onion/garlic breath! :)

This restaurant might not look like much from the outside, but the inside atmosphere is extremely nice. The food is excellent and the service has always been great.

Our choice for Mexican is either Guadalajara or On the Border. Service at El Serrano is good, but the food quality for authentic could be better.

If you live in York I would recommend fiesta Mexico or el rodeo. The quality of the food is practically the same. El Serrano claims to be Peruvian offering a wonderful dining experience. To be honest with you, I would rather go to taco bell. The service is the same, but at taco bell you seem to get what you... More
