Yum!

Super yummy tacos!!!! My favorite are the spicy pork followed by the beef. Love the green sauce! The owner is so nice too. Love this place. I live about half an hour away but work in Scranton so I get to have yummy lunches and I get to order take out so I don't have to cook for my family... read more

Pretty good place. Liked the authenticity right off the bat. Chips and Chipotle mayo was nice and spicy. Just right. Waitress not bad, but not friendly. Just doing her job. Buffalo wings were odd... not bad. Plenty of meat, but sauce tasted EXACTLY like Campbell's tomato soup with no extra seasoning. Burritos were packed with ingredients and flavor. Couldn't finish...

I've lived in the area for many years and I am kicking myself for not trying this place sooner. If you're debating on where to go for good Mexican food in the area, go here. They serve complimentary chips with spicy chipotle sauce (sorry no free salsa Tonalteca lovers). I had the wet burrito with green sauce and my fiancé... More

Of so many different options in the area, this is the one you should choose. This is a small family-owned business that has been going for years. The owner is at work every day, he still cooks in his own kitchen and comes out to ask people how their meals are. The food has always been amazing in my experience... More

We were passing through the area and were looking for an interesting alternative to the fast food joints along the I-81 corridor. We like Mexican food and thought we'd give it a try. It looked a little scary from outside, but we've learned over the years not to judge by what you see when you first drive up. In this... More

Small family-owned, BYOB, mexican restaurant in southside which is my family's favorite. The food is always fresh, the service is always excellent and welcoming. We have tried most menu items over the years but went out on a limb and tried the hot wings tonight. They had a kick and mexican flavor, we loved them. If you like mexican food... More

This is the Mexican version of my favorite Scranton restaurant Savory Mazza. Chicano's is every bit an authentic Mexican foods spot,home cooking, like being in a Mexican grandma's kitchen.Family run, cozy and friendly. Wide variety of dishes,staff explain everything and if you tell them your tastes recommend spot on a dish sure to please. Worth a visit.
