Checked review, went by restaurant and it has closed it doors for good. There is now no restaurant in the Best Western hotel. Please delete this restaurant from the site. Thanks.

The salsa bar is awesome. The fajita quesadilla was the best dish I've ever had at a mexican restaurant. I don't care for it being in a hotel - that would be my only negative.

The salsa bar is a nice touch, but our waiter never bothered to tell us about it. He just plunked a basket of chips on the table and took our order. We saw other people going to the bar and when my husband went to see what they were doing, our dinner arrived. The food was very good, and the... More

The style of Mexican food varies depending on where you are in the US. Alejandro's is very similar to what you would get in Southern California. They have a great salsa bar, yummy chips, and the food is served hot and quickly. We make a point of eating a Alejandro's at least once during each of our 2-3 visit a... More

We look forward to dining at Alejandro's whenever we visit our son at Radford University. We discovered this gem last spring and made sure to go back in October when we got there again. The salsa bar has a delicious assortment of sauces for your chips or your meal. Nice selection of beer and margaritas. Prices are reasonable. Menu has... More

Had dinner at Alejandros. The salsa bar is a nice touch but the food was average. I had carnitas which were dry and over cooked. My wife had a chile relleno burrito which didn't have enough cheese. I guess if you just wanted a taco or quesadilla it would be OK. The kids portions were generous. I wouldn't return.

Salsa bar was awesome with choices that were not all fire hot.portions were huge ,seems to me to be true of most mex. restaurants,Chile rille so were awesome,and the service was very fast and nothing appeared to be microwaved. The margarita special was not at all watered down as some places do,they also have a great selection of mex. beers

The service was outstanding, and the salsa bar was to die for! We left there very full for a $5 lunch!

For a restaurant in a hotel this was surprisingly good. My husband and I shared mixed fajitas and they were very good. My son enjoyed the house special burito. Chips were brought to the table. There was not any instruction on getting salsa from the "salsa bar", but we just got up and helped our selves. Other than that the... More
