Great choice if you're craving Mexican food. Sure, it's not the real stuff...go to Mexico or SoCal for that. But, it's really the next best thing. The carne asada burrito was spot on. I would recommend staying away from the beans and rice (extra 15 RMB if ordered with a non-entree item). They were both dry and not good at all. The chips/salsa were pretty good but watch out, only the first one is free. There is only ONE upsetting thing about this place...it's location. It's quite far from the city centre. Also, the map on Trip Advisor is WAY off! It was about 1KM away from what the map shows, so be careful and bring a map of your own.

My wife and I frequent Pistolera regularly and always come away satisfied and satiated. The food and drinks are great and the atmosphere is appropriate and comfortable. Their quality is consistent and matches the price point. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a quality casual dining experience.

The Al Pastor tacos are a must order. The El Diablo cocktail is great, too.
