Great food, great service! Would recommend this place to anyone! We sat out in the dining area by the open windows which I really liked as I found the inside area a little too dark. Food was great! Portions great and prices reasonable!

We usually visit the Robinson location for this restaurant and never had a bad meal. I can't say the same for our first visit to this location. The restaurant was not busy, but service was slow. It took so long to get our drinks that they gave them to us. I ordered three carne asada tacos on corn tortillas. I... More

This is the most authentic Mexican Restaurant I have ever eaten in. The decor is very Mexican, the staff is all Mexican, and the food is delicious.

Stopped in for Dinner. Sat at the bar. Service was good but could have been a little better. Had to ask a couple of time for the same thing. I was never offered a refill and had to wait a while to cash out. Food came out quickly and was hot. I thought it was average Mexican food. it was... More

My son suggested this place for a late lunch early dinner; there was no crowd to speak of so seating and service was prompt. The Super Quessadila was good. The rice was dry and a third of the plate was covered in chopped lettuce with a dollop of guacamole. The entry itself was hot and flavorful but the steak knife... More

I had the Fajita combination (chicken, beef, shrimp). It was served with the usual fare of beans & rice, along with guacamole salad and soft tortilla shells. The chips and salsa was quite good. Service was very good and prompt

I reviewed El Campesino before and gave it an average rating. I mentioned some points for the recommendation, such as slow service etc. Well I tried it again today (went alone this time) and happy to say the food is still good. The service was still a bit slow (I sat at my table for 5 minutes before being acknowledged).... More

This Texas transplant is not overly optimistic in finding a good Tex-Mex restaurant in the middle of the Keystone state. Fortunately, we didn't have to travel far from our Coraopolis home to find a place where we could enjoy a very good ( albeit somewhat expensive margarita) and truly cold Coronas. Chips and salsa were placed quickly on our table... More
