“REAL food with a personal touch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

I challenge anyone to find a more satisfying authentic Mexican dining experience anywhere east of the Mississippi. It is not for the faint of heart, though - if your idea of great Mexican is a pile of cheese and ground beef on top of tortilla chips, go somewhere else. Suggest starting with the guac that is out of this world and following it up with Gramma's daily special or one of the standard menu favorites like pollo con mole or enchiladas. It's not the cheapest date in town, nor is it anything resembling fast food. But if you want unique and full flavors served with a warm, friendly touch, plan on spending a couple of hours here eating & catching up with someone special. Latino's has become a standard anniversary and Valentine's day stop, and the kids love it, too!

“Meaning to go here for years...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

We finally made it to latinos for a nice dinner and were very pleased with the food, staff, and atmosphere. The food was fantastic. The gaucamole was very fresh. The entrees were very flavorful and I guess what I would expect of a homecooked meal in Mexico (never been there). The plantain desert was perfect- not too sweet and not too heavy. The staff were very friendly, each and every person that helped with our meal.

“Great atmosphere, food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Latino's restaurant in Erie, PA definitely is excellent and the real thing. Julio the owner is very friendly, helpful and attentive. His mom is in the kitchen cooking the very delicious and authentic mexican cuisine. We drive from Buffalo just to go there. It's worth the ride. The only drawback is the neighborhood and the parking which aren't the greatest, but I have found over the years that some of the best restaurants are not in the greatest of locations. It's not Taco Bell so expect to pay what you would at any fine restaurant of any particular fine cuisine. It's worth every penny. Would recommend to anyone who is looking for or appreciates mexican food at it's best. I'll be back. Thanks Julio and mom.

“The REAL DEAL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

Traveling from Indiana, where Mexican restaurants are a dime a dozen. Latinos is by far the most authentic Mexican food ever. This place is the real deal and will come back to time and time again. The price was reasonable for the great service, and fantastic food. You are treated very well from the time you walk in, until you leave. Thank you.
