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?

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.

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! :)
