“authentic Mexican fare”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Always enjoy this little place in Monroeville which is now a big place. Chips and salsa are the bomb and the drinks are very good. I usually try the burito with beans and rice.

“Great food & nice atmosphere”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Hotel we were staying in had a 15% off discount if you showed your room key. Enjoyed the food & margaritas were Great! Forgot to show room key after paying, so the server came back & gave us a $10 gift check.

“The best Mexican restaurant”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

I can't say enough about this place. We go here all the time. Not only is the food good but the price is great. You can't beat it. The pictures of beer are worth it and the service is excellant.

“I would do a hat dance for this Mexican Cuisine!”
Reviewed May 9, 2011

Great restaurant. Good food. Best poblano pepper in town. Big 23 ounce dos x drafts for $3.50. How can you beat that price. This is a local family owned chain with 4 restaurants.

Menu is large and very reasonable. Belly band busting dinners for 9.50 to 11.00. I love the chips. Crisp and made here. Order the hot salsa with the chips http://always.complimentary!

Owners and staff very welcoming. Overall the food is much better than national chains but not quite Mexico City.

Vote from me as best mexican in Pittsburgh!
