Excellent Food

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... read 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

We found that this is a good stop for our family of 5 when we are hungry on our way home to Alleghany County from Roanoke. I usually get the California Burrito with Angel Sauce, and the wife gets chicken fajitas. I was pleased to find Dos Equis Amber on draft. Typically even with a couple beers for me I... More

Roanoke might not been known for great Mexican food but Alejandro's was a solid choice. Great salsa bar and margaritas. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

I was extremely disappointed after just now leaving this place for late lunch. My family and I found his place on our way back home to Nashville from a trip to New Jersey. We were very hungry and tired from our drive and we're looking for good food before we hit the road again. Let me just begin by saying... More

I have eaten at locations, downtown and Williamson Rd. If you go downtown at lunch be prepared for a crowd. It is a small location with limited seating and a loyal crowd. I like the $5 lunch menu, which beats paying $8+ at most other restaurants in the downtown area. The Williamson Rd location is much larger and has the... More
