Not Your Typical Tex-Mex
Diner Review – January 19, 2013 Having traveled a lot to Mexico, I can tell you that this is not your typical Tex-Mex food that is found in many Mexican restaurants in the area. Granted, I like Tex-Mex, but this is more authentic. Traditional Mexican food is not smothered in cheese, sour cream, and salsa. Service was a bit slow on a busy Friday night, but overall, the five people at our table enjoyed their meals. I can personally recommend the chicken enchiladas. They were very good.

Likes It - Diner Review – January 16, 2013 Cinco Mexican Restaurant is a great place. I'm from Mexico. Last month, with my son, I visited Pittsburgh to see the Steelers game. We wanted Mexican food and went to Cinco Mexican Restaurant. The food has typical Mexican flavor which was fantastic.

First Time Here
Likes It - Diner Review – January 16, 2013 A friend and I went to Cinco Mexican Restaurant one night this week because I'd been driving by it for a while and wanted to try it. Overall, our experience was very good. We liked the look and decor of the place, and the easy parking was a great thing. Our server was really nice and got everything right. Our margaritas were delicious and STRONG (worth the price that we thought was a bit high at first).
We were pretty surprised that you have to order chips and salsa. I've never been to a Mexican place where they don't come complimentary and right away. I was very happy with the vegetarian section of the menu and ordered the vegetarian fajitas. They were great. My friend ordered the steak taco salad and was very happy as well! We'll both definitely go back.
Great Non-Tex-Mex Food
Likes It - Diner Review – January 15, 2013 Cinco Mexican Restaurant has an extensive menu with offerings organized regionally. The waiter was friendly and helpful. The food arrived quickly and was very good! I especially liked the pozole (with chicken). Plus, the prices were reasonable, and there was ample parking. I will definitely return to try more dishes.
