However, the small, family-owned Old Mexico manages to stand out from the rest
April 26, 2019
Good Mexican food is hard to find in Pittsburgh, especially in a market overtaken by big chain restaurants like Moe’s and Chipotle. However, the small, family-owned Old Mexico manages to stand out from the rest. After leaving the now condemned Century III Mall, Old Mexico found a new home on Route 51 in 2018. The restaurant offers all the staples of Mexican cuisine, from tacos and chimichangas to more obscure selections like carnitas and alambres. The food itself is very good and comes at a great price for how large the portions are. The free servings of chips and salsa truly help the restaurant stand out from the competition. These chips are on par with Olive Garden breadsticks in terms of complementary appetizers. The service is great, too. The waiters are fast and are always ready to help out customers whenever needed. Their friendly attitudes help create a wholesome, family-style dining experience. All in all, Old Mexico provides a very authentic Mexican dining experience.
