Description: If you haven't visited El Serrano along Lancaster's Columbia Avenue lately, you haven't visited El Serrano. Or, perhaps it is more appropriate to say, you haven't visited Peru. Every square inch of the Latin-American restaurant has been extensively redesigned, upgraded and refurbished authentically, with architectural details similar to those of 150 years ago--to the point that stepping through its hand-carved mahogany doors is like entering a Peruvian hacienda. As owner Manuel Torres says, "it's like going on vacation."

“LOVE their food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2006

My husband and I went to El Serrano this past weekend and both ordered the pollo fundido. It was SO good we had to savor each and every bite! Now, we've never been to Mexico so, in all fairness to the other reviews, the only thing we really have to compare it to is Americanized Mexican food, but we think the atmosphere and food are absolutely wonderful!
