We attended this facility on a dining tour of Roanoke and just had a very light early lunch. The place was clean and small but the selection was not enough to give the place more than a fair rating. The staff were very friendly, the atmosphere was warn and inviting, and the location was pleasant. We were able to have... More

A huge menu of freshly prepared, authentic Mexican meals. The Burritos are enormous and delicious; the Fajitas are served sizzling and flavorful in large portions. The Poblanas dishes are amazing. The Chili Rellenos are authentic and incredibly delicious. Great kids menu as well. But the crowning touch is the unlimited and expansive salsa bar. Explore and enjoy!

Had a terrible Sunday lunch experience. Food was sent back twice and the kitchen still got it wrong. Server was entitled and had an attitude. When we asked to speak to the manager, we were informed that he was on break and yet I saw the gentleman peeking out from the kitchen on a couple of occasions afterwards. We spent... More

We've eaten at all the Mexican places in the area, and this is our favorite, for sure. Texas fajitas are a favorite. Chile Rellanos are as close to authentic as I've seen.

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

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
