We've been going to this restaurant for years as a family. Having grown up in So Cal, I'm a huge fan of Mexican cuisine and have experienced a broad range of regional sub-types. On top of the friendly and highly attentive staff, the chef at this restaurant frequently introduces a wide range of new dishes every few months. While typical... More

I have enjoyed several meals at this restaurant. When there have been meals I wanted not on the menu, they accommodated what I wanted. The burritos were delicious and the cheese dip was extremely good. My husband really loves the salsa bar because he likes the white sauce that he cannot always get at other restaurants. I never had a... More

My wife's big complaint was the service. Personally I don't care if the wait staff yells at me as long as the food is good. The food at Alejandro's is not good. My wife's food was not brought as she asked - they forgot her dressing and tomatoes and our food came before someone finally brought us silverware. Food is... More

I was drawn to this resturant after hearing raves about the salsa bar. Well all I can say is everytime I've visited this resturant the food and service has been less than pleasurable. I didn't feel well after I've eaten here and after looking up their health dept. scores I see why. My absolute fab in the NRV is El... More

Ordered the two enchiladas with rice and beans, chicken in enchiladas were flavorless, no spice kick, nothing. Food really lacked in flavor. I needed lots of their spiciest salsa to put on but still didn't help. The server seemed like she didn't want to be there and couldve cared less if we were there or not. Salsa bar was nice,... More

Have eaten here several times in recent years. Always reminds me of the greasy spoon type establishment - can never put my finger on the reason though. Prices are competitive, portions are large, nice salsa bar. Recently had taco salad with shredded chicken. Te chicken turned out to be large chunks rather than finely shredded. This other ingredients were added... More

My dad always wants to go here when he comes to town. They always have great food, we normally order two of the specials that are for two people and get to take leftovers home. Everyone loves the salsa bar that has a lot of different kinds of salsa, my favorite is the spicy white one. Of course we always... More

Pretty good mexican fare. Not too much on atmosphere. Prices are good. Service is quick. Very large choice of salsas. Located in a strip mall.

The best part of this place is the salsa bar - so many options, so many choices. It is sure to keep your taste buds hopping. The service is fast and friendly and the food choices are plentiful.
