Lunch? maybe; dinner? no!

My husband and I had dinner here Saturday night. Overall, I was not impressed. The staff was all teenage girls who whisper and dart around the restaurant in skin tight clothes. Their manner of dress, movements, and barely audible speech gives the place an unpleasant, sneaky-ninja feeling... read more

Food is good here although little costly. I ordered Fajitas which turned out to be really good. From here I got the idea of roasting the vegetables in this fashion:).. Service was slow , i guess could have been better.

Three times in a row take out orders have been wrong. Tired of getting back to work or home only to open the tightly closed plastic bags (which you have to rip to get into ) only to find the tortillas missing, taco salads with wrong toppings, missing dressings when paid extra for this. Too far and too much trouble... More

For our one night in York, we were thrilled to learn about a Peruvian cuisine restaurant, El Serrano, near our hotel. What we found when we got there was a sign outside, “El Serrano Mexican Restaurant”. Inside, the restaurant was nicely appointed with comfortable booths set in individual alcoves, but customers there for the Mexican enjoying the same. We wanted... More

El Serrano is our favorite place to take visitors from other countries! We have always been delighted with our dinner here, and the same is true of our guests. Their freshly made salsa cannot be beat, in our opinion. I fell in love with fajitas here, as well. Mmmm...getting hungry just talking about it!

I have gone to the Lancaster location of this company, but I recently decided to have dinner at the York location on a whim. Here are the highlights: 1. Nice selection: The menu here is a nice balance of what people would call Mexican and Peruvian dishes. There is enough for everyone to be very satisfied with their menu choice... More

Delicious dinner this time at their York location. Could not believe this is the same restaurant as the Lancaster location until we walked to our seats. Much smaller but same great food. We enjoyed our favorite lomo saltado. Filet, French fries, tomatoes, onions, and rice. Can't duplicate this at home. Another hit was the chicken fajitas. What is the secret?

Really enjoyed the Tapa selections. Everything tasted fantastic. Have to come back soon to try the regular menu.

Be sure to get chicken w Peruvian white rice and French fries mixed with grilled vegetables. Chicken quesadillas are also excellent. My husband and adult children usually get fajitas. Service varies from average to poor but the food is worth enduring the service. Booths are crammed and chairs are uncomfortable.
