Awesome place. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but looks are deceiving in this case. They make some great authentic Mexican cuisine here. Try the beef tongue tacos!! The Tortas sandwiches are HUGE and delicious as well. Enjoy!

Drove quite a ways after reading the reviews and came away unhapy. Prices are midrange for a really "downhome" establishment. Guacamole (with chips), Chicken Chimichanga and Borimex Combo Burrito were selected. Food bland, too Americanized, insufficient zestiness. Had to locate table salt and ask for red and green salsas. Too few chips for the price paid. First off, do not... More

This restaurant was 20-30 minutes from the campground, we stayed at, but definitely worth it! There was a mexican chain restaurant a couple of miles away and we were glad we made the trip here. We drove our camper and there was plenty of parking. It doesn't look fancy, but the food tastes homemade and just the right amount of... More

The owners of this restaurant -- one from Puerto Rico and one from Mexico -- have accomplished a menu with a wonderful assortment of their native foods and flavors. Really super pastelles! And yummy pork sofrito is excellent! A nice array of Hispanic foods are also available -- I found (finally!) where to get horchata mix! Helpful folks there --... More

Being from Arizona, we know good Mexican food! The steak tacos were pretty good. My son ordered nachos with cheese. He got a basket of chips and a bowl of microwaved nacho cheese sauce. I was disappointed with that. I saw a guacamole order on another table and that looked good, I wish I would've ordered that. The waitress was... More

I moved here from CA a few years ago and Lancaster County has some amazing food, but good Mexican is hard to find. And I looked, and tasted, all around...Last Borimex is the most authentic and delicious Mexican food I've had in the area. If that's what you're looking for, thus is the place!!

This restaurant has delicious Mexican food. It's not a fancy place but you get the feeling you are in Mexico when eating there. If you like Mexican you should definately give it a try!

Wonderful Mexican lunch on Sunday afternoon at La Borimex. Staff was quick and attentive, very friendly and nice. Food was fabulous and so reasonably priced. I had the chicken fajita salad - delicious. My hubby had the chicken enchiladas and son had the ground beef burrito. Everything came with rice and beans. No leftovers! Restaurant was nothing fancy inside actually... More

An unexpected find in Lancaster, PA. The food is authentic, freshly made and just delicious. Prices are very reasonable and portions large. The staff is friendly. Set in a very casual, sort of dive, Mexican grocery store, the food is the star. We love going there.
