Stopped here in the middle of a lengthy car trip. Chose this place based on reviews from this website. The nice part was that of the four of us eating, our dishes came out staggered, a few minutes at a time. If you were abiding by the strictest of table manners, this might be an issue, but for us it indicated that our food was being made with some care and hadn't been made to sit under a heat lamp for some time. Everyone agreed their meal was tasty, and with that we were on our way.

We'd eaten at the Campbell St. location several times, and always loved the food. The move to more "Center City" Williamsport was a good one. Right across the street from the Lycoming County Court House, they're easy to find and are directly opposite 3rd St from one of the parking garages. We loved the food: had the chili con queso and chips as an appetizer, then we each had a chimichanga, my husband had the beef, I had the chicken. The chicken was tender and moist, and the tortilla fried but not greasy and actually flaky. After we finished our meal, we started talking with Abrana, the owner's daughter. A lovely young lady, she shared with us the story of the restaurant from it's opening in Sunbury, to Northumberland, to Williamsport and back to a Sunbury location. It was quite interesting, hearing about the original Abrana Marie, her great grandmother in Albuquerque, to her growing up living above the restaurant/bar and how in the beginning the reservation process took as long as two weeks, and the food was made specifically for the person who ordered it, right down to the hand crafted tortillas. It was much more than just food, it was a culinary experience. We'll definitely go back.

terrific food-everything is wonderful. but the price they pay for being so great is being too busy for takeout many nights and too crowded/too long a wait. I wish they were in a bigger venue and/or safer neighborhood but I'll take whatever I can get because Abrana's is awesome! Try the chicken enchiladas with the green chili sauce in medium spice :)

My friends and I go here for "family dinner" often. The food is absolutely amazing. The enchilladas are our favorite. They come in a variety of meats and sauces and, yes, we have tried all of them. I highly recommend the chilli relleno and the rosbif enchilladas. It is byob.
