The food was excellent and the drinks even better. We had mason jar margaritta's, a little pricy, but very good. Everything about the food was wonderful, unfortunately, the service was terrible. I have gone here several times and its always the same. Good food, and very poor service. I always seem to get the same lady and I just cringe.... More

Went here for dinner. Good restaurant and specials. We noticed website needs updated as all of the specials were from months ago. Excellent burritos.

We have gone here many time and have not had a bad meal ranging from salads to full course meals. The chief is friendly and come out to talk to you about specials.

Authentic Mexican food in a cozy environment. Often crowded but worth the wait. Family friendly. A little off the beaten path.

We always enjoy this place. Happy hour is the best for margaritas and the chorizo stuffed portobellos & fish tacos are phenomenal!

We have driven by this very popular restaurant many times and finally decided to have dinner there! their menu includes a number of gluten free options! The dinners, sangria and guacamole were all great. Diners may want to ask about the spiciness of some dishes!

This place has the best Mexican food I have ever eaten. The wait is so worth it. The place looks how a Mexican Rest. should look, like your in Mexico.

My childhood friend who has returned to Pittsburgh after living in Texas for 30+ years, has been yearning for good Mexican food. She suggested lunch at a Mexican chain but I thought she might be happier with The Franklin Inn and I was right. The restaurant was not crowded so we had personalized service from a great waitress. The warm... More

Franklin Inn is a quaint, local restaurant in the north hills of Pittsburgh, Pa. It offers a good variety of Mexican dishes as well as delicious Margaritas. They serve generous portions with your choice of two sides for about $12.00.

Our wait of one hour was worth it. This restaurant has been open for 37 years and to my and my wife's opinion serve the best Mexican food in Pittsburgh. Service was excellent even on a very busy Saturday night. The food was delicious, plentiful and came to the table piping hot. The decor is Latin in format, with beautiful... More
