Traveling out of Roanoke after a visit and found this gem tucked away in a corner of a shopping center. I LOVE the salsa bar! Chips are great but the varied salsas were a wonder to try. Server was very attentive and patient with us looking over the extensive menu. I can't remember exactly what I had - crazy fajitas... More

The servers were rude like they were doing us a favor! Service??? That first bad taste just got worse when the food came out. It just sucked!! First and last experience with this Spanish Harlem!!

I love the Chicken Fajita Nachos! I usually place a pick up order and the food is ready promptly. The servers I have dealt are always very friendly and helpful!

We are frequent diners at the Alejandro's downtown location and thought we would give this location a try. Maybe we have a opinion biased toward the downtown location, but we just did not think our dinner orders were were as good. The California Style Burrito had all of the listed menu ingredients, was large portioned, but seemed to lack much... More

I come from the PNW, so I'm used to subpar Mexican food. I was expecting the same when I came out east to visit family. Boy, was I wrong! My family raved about this place all week during my visit and finally took me out to dinner one night. The food was fantastic. I had a chimichanga. I could choose... More

This has become our go to place for late lunch. At noonish it is crowded...but they have a good system for people on their lunch hour. They do have a great menu, more than just the usual...and a salsa bar that lets you sample and experiment. Reasonable and delicious! What more could you want?

We are so happy to have found Alejandro's - so much better than chain Mexican restaurants! We've been a few times to this location (and also their location downtown) and have had excellent meals and service each time. The salsa bar is a fun touch. Service has always been fast and friendly. Can't wait to come back!

If you are looking for a quiet meal with plenty of ambiance this is not the place for you. It is usually noisy, well lighted, and chaotic. However if you like good, well prepared food, served by a nice person who has English as a second language, an endless basket of chips with many choices of salsas, then you will... More
