Great Guacamole and Salsa Bar

This local Mexican restaurant is located near the heart of downtown Roanoke. It may not live up to Texas standards for Mexican food, but I love it. The salsa bar is a cool feature and fun. The guacamole is extra, but is homemade and delicious. I ordered a pork dish from the lunch menu and took... read more

Stopped on the way to Tennessee! Lucky choice.....loved it. Tamales were perfect! Place was full of a bus load of middle school kids and still had good service. Not far from exit. Very good prices! Only wished chips were warm. Salsa bar was great.

My wife and I had a tasty meal here, and the waiter was helpful with providing gluten-free options. The service was fast, and the portions were large and satisfying.

I've eaten at Alejandro's numerous times through the years (I'm a local). I have entertained business clients, friends and family. The food is great, and they have a salsa bar with many different salsa's to choose from for dipping your chips. The extra large beer servings are also a hit with many customers (especially my father in law :-)).

If you are planning on going, get your money out and hand it to some homeless person. It will be better spent. I see someone wrote dog food, ha, I think they have better food than this place. It's an old pizza place atmosphere and service was bad at best.

I live in south texas so it may be that I'm just used to other (better) Mexican food. The portion in is good but the flavor is no bueno. Would like to to give them a good review because the staff was great but NO.
