Stopped into new location on State Hill Rd, Wyomissing and the staff ignored me and my friend. We waited for 2-3 minutes to even be acknowledged while they looked at us and looked away. A restaurant has one chance at a first impression, these people failed and I'll never go back.

I really like Alebrije and have never had a bad meal. Great drinks - quick service. The only downside is that you smell like a kitchen when you leave .. it truly permeates your clothing. I think they need to air out during early hours.

Good salsa and service. My daughter got the California burrito and I tasted the steak meat and it was delicious! My son in law and I both got the ground beef chimichanga and sorry but "crispy" was in the description and it wasn't even close to that and it was so small. Wish I had gotten the California burritio instead.... More

I absolutely love this restaurant, the staff always makes you comfortable and the food is always fresh and delicious!!! It is also intimate and can be family oriented. The drinks are always great as well.

This used to be a great place. I would say it's now average at best. There are a few great seasoned staff remaining and that helps-if you get them. The portions have gotten smaller and the prices higher. Disappointed at what used to be our go to.

We eat here occasionally for lunch as close by and service and food always very good. Small in size but you will like it. I normally get the fajitas with chicken or some variation. always done perfectly.

My husband and I visited another of these restaurants in another part of town and this one doesn't compare at all. Our food was cold and the quantity received was really disappointing. In addition, my sangria was just wine with fruit cup. We won't be back at this one again.

We have been eating this restaurant since they opened in Berks County. The food and service are always great. They keep the menu fresh and the restaurant clean. This is one of our go-to dining spots.

Solid choice for Mexican food. Above average with very good service. Server was attentive, pre meal chips and salsa were supplied in abundance.

Thank William H
