“My Wife & Daughter Love the Gobblerito's...”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

OK...
As far as bonafide mexican food, this place if very good. & the portions are plentifull.

During November, they offer a Thanksgiving meal in their regularly Large portioned Burrito meal. It includes Turkey, mashed taters, corn, stuffing & Black beans ( i think). I have had some of my wife's & it is very good. If you want to control your portions, it is a meal that can be shared by two people..
I always stay on traditional mexican fare, & have never been disapointed.
My only comlpaint is that the Margaritas, are expensive and not very good.
We still go back and enjoy this restaraunt, especially in November.. There are MadMex locations in Pittsburgh as well & we have been to several of those as well.
the Ambience is cool, the draft beer selection is very good. great bartenders & wait staff.
All in all ... I would recommend...

“Go for the atmosphere but not the food”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

The all you can eat burrito special was filled with 95% rice to fill you up. subsequent rounds of burritos were very slow in coming too. They were more than fair in replacing an entre' my wife ordered and didn't care for.

“Mad Mex is a favorite”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

On a warm day you cannot beat the outside bar. Great beer on tap, great service, and good food! Mad Mex is a Pittsburgh based chain -- and it is high quality. Def. worth a visit!!!!

“Margaritas...BOOM”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Mad Mex is an excellent Tex/Mex bar/restaurant in State College. Get the giant fruit margaritas when they're on special!

“Decent, but I'd go on Mondays”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

The food is good, but I really only head over on Mondays for $5 all-you-care-to-eat burritos. They're good, and it makes up for slow service.
