We walked into this place and it appeared to be dirty and it had a smell to it. It was an immediate turn off. Did not stay walked out as soon as we walked in.

This place has some great Mexican food, however every time I've ever been here the service has been less than desirable. In the fall the offer gobbleritos which is by far their best dish.

Mad Mex is always a good choice for lunch or dinner!! Many options...protein & vegetarian! Burritos, salads and wings are always fresh! Happy hour is from 4:30 till 6:30. Margaritas are not weak!!

I had lunch with friends. I started with a bowl of tortilla soup. I have had many a tortilla soup but this looked like none of them. It was red and mushy in texture like a thick bisque, and had an after kick. Mine was...More

My review may have been higher except I just returned from some great Mexican restaurants near San Diego. SD delivered 2 baskets of chips with 4 types of salsa, Mad Mex -NONE! The fajitas were bone dry, but tasted OK. Pittsburgh does not offer many...More
