Lot's of warm chips and salsa...what's not to... More

The service is quick and your plate is full. They start you with warm chips and a homemade salsa. I try not to finish my plate... More

Our midweek birthday dinner for two was just a bad memory. The kid who waited on us had a calculator and paperwork spread out on two of the four-tops in the front of the dining area, so we were seated next to the wall between the faded construction paper Mexican flag and and a giant gum ball machine. The restrooms... More

El Serape is a Mexican Restaurant with menu offerings that include dishes from other areas of Latin America, thus giving the consumer a wide variety of choices from which to select. The service and the food are excellent as are the beverages (Cadillac margarita was outstanding). Inside, the large, colorful murals are well done and entertaining and it is hard... More

I like where the place is, I like the people and I love the food. The other Mexican places in PT are alright, but not nearly as good as El Sarape!!

Most Mexican restaurants are very similar and this one is no exception. Not remarkable but good food, prepared well. Warm chips and salsa were a highlight. Portions were large -- more than we could eat. The sangria was too sweet.

Loved the warm chips and spicy salsa brought to our table. The building was great, too, especially the exterior.
