Sergio's is wonderful. The food tastes great and always comes out quickly. The staff have always been kind, prompt, and thorough. My favorites are the Sergio Burrito, Cheese filled Chile Relleno, and Sergio Gold Margarita. It's hard to find a good chile relleno but Sergio's delivers the best in the area.

Little nervous about the food. Found restaurant to be a little dirty and glasses were not clean. Staff was friendly but questioned how well they were trained.

My wife and I had a Saturday dinner there. There was an older gentleman who was singing karaoke for some odd reason. Our door came & normally the fajitas are good, but this time they were disgusting. It will be awhile before I go back.

What makes this place awful is the drunken owner who screams at customers if you don't order correctly, and he doesn't understand English even when he's sober!!!

This food is pretty good! Chips come out fresh and hot! Chicken chimichanga is always my go-to and it never fails! Good atmosphere and friendly staff

This restaurant is just down the street from where I live and we visit a few times a year. The food is pretty good and portions are substantial. The atmosphere is what I would call "kitchy" Mexican. The decorations are over done but it can be a fun atmosphere. Cleanliness leaves a bit to be desired but we still keep... More

I am always pleased when dining at Sergio's. Anything with steak is my favorite. My family prefers the chicken though.

Phone is 618-942-8085. Locally owned by the Mendes-Rodriquez family who immigrated from the Mexican town of Jesús María, Jalisco as covered by the local newspaper The Southern. Solid Tex-Mex with a great atmosphere. Very festive/ranchero themed with sports on the TV and a lively family/community scene. Outdoors patio. Good service and prices. Unfortunately no mole but otherwise a large menu. I recommend the "molcajete" with red sauce dish. Their original location is in Murphysboro, Illinois with a third location at Marion, Illinois.
