Almost As Good

Maybe we have a opinion biased toward the downtown location, but we just did not think our dinner orders were were as good.

I come from the PNW, so I'm used to subpar Mexican food. I was expecting the same when I came out east to visit family. Boy, was I wrong! My family raved about this place all week during my visit and finally took me out to dinner one night. The food was fantastic. I had a chimichanga. I could choose... More

This has become our go to place for late lunch. At noonish it is crowded...but they have a good system for people on their lunch hour. They do have a great menu, more than just the usual...and a salsa bar that lets you sample and experiment. Reasonable and delicious! What more could you want?

We are so happy to have found Alejandro's - so much better than chain Mexican restaurants! We've been a few times to this location (and also their location downtown) and have had excellent meals and service each time. The salsa bar is a fun touch. Service has always been fast and friendly. Can't wait to come back!

If you are looking for a quiet meal with plenty of ambiance this is not the place for you. It is usually noisy, well lighted, and chaotic. However if you like good, well prepared food, served by a nice person who has English as a second language, an endless basket of chips with many choices of salsas, then you will... More

We love this Mexian restaurant and eat there about 1 time a week. The wait staff is friendly and helpful with menu items. You will love their salsa bar which offers about a dozen different varieties of salsa for the complentary chips. Food is always good.

We ate dinner here and the value is very good, food was good with huge portions. Service was below average, just very unattentive and never brought the cheese dip but it was on the check. The waiter removed it but didn't really seem to care. Very casual atmosphere.

Excellent service. The ambiance is a little tacky but for the price and quality of food this local place is quite good. We had the fajitas for two which included 2 large shells per person and chicken, steak, and shrimp. We were a little hesitant to try this place after reading some negative reviews but I'm glad we ate here.... More

Always fresh and tastey. How cool they have chips and never-ending salsa bar. They bring the chips and you get the salsa. Many different flavors and textures from spicy, creamy, mild, crunchy. Had 32oz dos xx beer. Good and cold. Had tacos, burritos and enchilatas. Finished with fried ice cream . Yummy
