“Salsa bar!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

The salsa bar is awesome. The fajita quesadilla was the best dish I've ever had at a mexican restaurant. I don't care for it being in a hotel - that would be my only negative.

“Nice salsa bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

The salsa bar is a nice touch, but our waiter never bothered to tell us about it. He just plunked a basket of chips on the table and took our order. We saw other people going to the bar and when my husband went to see what they were doing, our dinner arrived. The food was very good, and the menu was more varied than what we have experienced in other Mexican restaurants. The restaurant was noisy and was more like a sports bar than a dining establishment.

“California style Mexican Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The style of Mexican food varies depending on where you are in the US. Alejandro's is very similar to what you would get in Southern California. They have a great salsa bar, yummy chips, and the food is served hot and quickly.

We make a point of eating a Alejandro's at least once during each of our 2-3 visit a year to the area.

“Salsa Bar Crowns Your Mexican Favorites With Extra Flavor!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We look forward to dining at Alejandro's whenever we visit our son at Radford University. We discovered this gem last spring and made sure to go back in October when we got there again. The salsa bar has a delicious assortment of sauces for your chips or your meal. Nice selection of beer and margaritas. Prices are reasonable. Menu has variety for Mexican-loving and not-so-loving palates.

“Just average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

Had dinner at Alejandros. The salsa bar is a nice touch but the food was average. I had carnitas which were dry and over cooked. My wife had a chile relleno burrito which didn't have enough cheese. I guess if you just wanted a taco or quesadilla it would be OK. The kids portions were generous. I wouldn't return.
