My ench w green sauce served w red sauce, server told me green sauce was on the inside, which it was not. Beans spices nut lots of flavor. Rice over cooked, dry and flavorless. Specialty margaretta was sour, had... More

This place does a mad good job with tofu, and they even have non-dairy cheese. Add lots of beans, good guac, yummy margaritas... done and done! I was pleasantly surprised to see how easy it is to get legit vegan/vegetarian food that is authentic and plays with the flavors of Mexico. We ate and drank a ton and will be... More

We had a great dinner here. Service was excellent and the staff was very helpful with gluten free choices. Large frosty marguaritas. Delicious chips and salsa. Nice venue.

All I had was a simple quesadilla with steak and a side salad. Less than 30 minutes later my chest was on fire and I got severely sick. I'm not sensitive to Mexican food, so there was something horribly wrong with my meal. Ugh.

I met my daughter here for a weeknight dinner with my free birthday entree coupon from the Big Burrito group. Parking is terrible for this location, but we finally found spots for both cars. The inside of this restaurant is VERY dark so I didn't think I would be able to see the menu! We got a booth where the... More

I love Mad Mex and so will you. Burrito is beefy and delicious. I recommend the spicy steak which features a spicy chipotle sauce drizzled on top in the form of their logo. Awesome Mexican chain about to run wild on the United States!

I visit Mad Mex everything I am in Pittsburgh. Great menu and good vegan choices too. Never been a fan of the Marg's, but the beer selection is great.

A lot of great burritos and beers to go with them. The Angry Hippie is excellent! Order it with the Chimmi sauce on the side.

This restaurant is getting worse. The food is just not as good as it used to be (sweet sauce on tofu in a taco?!). The tortillas of the burritos are soggy and pasty. The rice has the taste and texture of rice-a-roni; the black beans have no flavor whatsoever. The only good thing was the guacamole...but the chips are just... More

Having never eaten in this place, I was greatly surprised by the quality of the food. Had the Veggie Burrito, and the size of the portion was out of the world. I was told that when I saw my meal I would be take by surprise and was I ever. It was stuffed with rice, onion, peppers, beans, mushrooms and... More
