Painter’s Run Rd. Not sure what township, I’m guessing Upper St. Clair.

40-some-odd posts and not one mention for Veracruz (Forbes & Oakland, across from Qdoba). Used to go periodically, but haven’t been back in ages–curious what others think of it.

veracruz seems to have changed ownership / management a few times over the past couple years. while it is decent / value food, i don’t think the Michelin folks will be stopping by anytime soon.

It is definately worth checking out if you are in Oakland and aren’t in the mood for chain-food.

Veracruz is like the American success story Ereberto (sp?) the owner (for about the last 6 or 8 years) started as a dishwasher there. Now he owns the place. Plus a Mexican grocery on Semple street. I think he might also have a piece of Ranchito on Atwood.

My tummy approves of the burro comedor. Their carnitas tastes different from others around town, which is nice – to be different. I prefer the Mexico City (Smithfield street) carnitas, though I haven’t been there in a few years.

El Burro Comedor is really good.

(My Workplace) has ordered from there a couple times, although we tend to call up with an order for like 10-15 ppl and kind of shut down the kitchens for a bit.

Sry about that, but the food is really good.

Is that the one in Wexford? Hubby and I went there after a long ride once and practically put our faces in our plates to eat.

So I’m pretty sure it was quite good, but it could have also been the post-ride hungries.

I’m a big fan of the street tacos, grilled green onions, and the guacamole from Cantina in Lawrenceville. The tortillas for the tacos are so fresh. The closest I’ve come to getting restaurant soft tacos that taste like homemade tortillas. Amazement ensues.

They also opened a sister shop in Northside, El Burro Comedor, which has limited seating and is therefore primarily a take out joint. The street tacos are amazing and the hard tacos are TO DIE FOR. So fresh and delicious. Same goes for the refried beans.

These two are likely my most favorite Mexican food joints. Way more authentic than texmex. And I am a purveyor of authentic Mexican.

Bikeygirl, thanks for taking the time to lay that out. Here’s a question you just might know the answer to, as well. What place in town (maybe some of the Mex places?) has some good ceviche? I don’t care for the red sauce type, I’m all about the ceviche marinated in juice, with onion, cilantro, etc. I’ve only ever had it from a Mexican recipe once but loved it, too. Thoughts, anyone?

^ pretty good ceviche at Ibiza on the south side and Tamari in Lawrenceville. There’s also a place called Seviche in the cultural district downtown. When it opened years ago, I thought the ceviche was good, but I’ve avoided it since because I just couldn’t jibe with the swingly vibe (others find it lively).

Last time I had ceviche in Pittsburgh was at Downtown’s “Seviche” and it was pretty good. I’ve never had Tamari’s.

Ibiza does-offer a very tasty ceviche as well, although some places just make it super-lemony, which drowns all the shrimp flavor.

Ever had octopus-ceviche….. SO GOOD! A bit chewy for some, but I love it :)

Tomatoes, cilantro, onion, avocado, etc…. YUMMY!

I’m more of a Ceviche de Corvina kind of person, if I can get it. Panamanian ceviche is hands down, my favorite! I’ll check Ibiza out. I’m not big on octopus or squid, in ceviche or sushi. I’m just not into the chewy stuff…

Definitely not Mexican, but the best taco in town is the maple smoked brisket / radish / egg / potato taco at Station Street Hot Dogs. I love Smoke’s Philly taco, but it really can’t hold a candle to the Station Street brisket. It’s effing stellar. Renya’s chorizo or carne asada pale in comparison to either. Station St’s meat is cared for well and of high quality. It makes a difference in the end result.

quite off topic, as it’s in philadelphia, but one of the best meals i’ve ever had in my life involved pulpo (rock octopus), from chifa in philly. if you are ever in that area, it’s expensive, but really well worth it.

Went to Emiliano’s (sp?) two days ago, for the third time. I won’t be going back anymore, their guacamole is the best thing they make, unfortunately…
