My wife and I had eaten at El Serrano a few times and I have eaten lunch with friends there several times. To start this is not a franchise like most Mexican Restaurants in the area. The atmosphere is friendly. The décor has a Spanish flair and the wait staff is friendly and efficient. The best part is the cuisine... More

My husband and I dine out regularly. As with most other folks we have our favorite places and seem to get into a rut going again and again. Every now and then we enjoy finding something a little different. El Serrano, is that little extra POP to the week. This weekend we enjoyed a pitcher of Sangria with our meal... More

The restaurant was not busy. There were ample opportunities for suggestive selling, but the service staff seemed disinterested. the maitre 'd had a professional appearance, but had... More

We have eaten here in York and El Sorrano in Lancaster. The food is excellent and the service is wonderful. We highly recommend the beef fajitas. We have had many things on the menu and enjoyed them all.

I've eaten at a few places in York and this one was very nice. Sat at the bar because I was traveling solo and had dinner there. The bartender was a very pleasant lady. The Fresh and Dirty Margarita was very good. I ordered artichoke hearts for an appetizer but they came out a significant time AFTER the meal (not... More

I may be biased from working here 22 years ago, but this is still the best place around for Mexican/Peruvian food! Chicken Fajitas are the best.. Pollo Fundido follows a close second. My husband and I can eat here for less than $30 and it's great food....

Had lunch with business associate. Excellent meal, excellent service. The salsa was about the best I've ever had in my life, and I took home two pints of it which friends in Virginia agreed was the best they'd ever had. Next time I'll call ahead and arrange to get six or eight pints and bring them home in a cooler.... More

Entrees were Good, Fajita Salad had only lettuce and a small piece of cut up chicken, No Dressing, No Beans or cheese. Fish Tacos were very good, Drinks were all ice and at $8 per margaritas are very over priced, you only could enjoy a few sips and you were left with a full glass of ice, Chips and salsa... More

I went to El Serrano in York for the first time, but have been going to Lancaster for years. The food and service were excellent, but I love the Lancaster location, so I am not sure if my reaction was tainted because it "wasn't Lancaster". The atmosphere is definitely not the same, so I can't wait to see the changes... More
