El Costeno Mexican Restaurant in Gettysburg

El Costeno Mexican Restaurant Gettysburg Pennsylvania
We few months ago we took a trip to Gettysburg to tour the battlefield and to visit all of the Gettysburg Civil War Attractions. When you plan a trip to Gettysburg, you always want to plan to stay several days, so that you can see and do everything this area has to offer, which is a lot!

When you visit the city, you'll find all kinds of different places to eat...from fast food to upscale dining. There are numerous pubs, restaurants, pizza parlors, diners, cafes and eateries to tempt your taste buds. There is Italian food, American cuisine and even Mexican food for your to enjoy. I grew up eating Mexican food, so when we travel...I like to seek out Mexican cuisine for us to enjoy.

Let me introduce you to El Costeno Mexican Restaurant which is a tiny casual restaurant right down the street from Lincoln Square (the roundabout) in the business district in Gettysburg. This restaurant is open year-round for dining-in or carry-out. On the day that we visited, we got carry-out since we were heading back to our hotel room.

When visiting El Costeno you can choose to sit out on their old brick and stone patio area to enjoy your food or eat inside. Of course, dining outside will depend on the weather and the time of the year. We were there in the early Fall and it was a 90+ degree day, but since they have a lot of shade, some patrons opted to dine outside.

The restaurant offers your classic Mexican fare. You'll find burritos, nachos, fajitas, chalupa, enchiladas, gorditas, quesadillas, tacos and more! In addition, you'll find your favorite Mexican dishes served with your favorite sides like guacamole, salsa, sour cream, etc. Everything is made-to-order, so you will have to wait for your food to be made. (We waited 20 minutes).

My husband ordered a chicken fajitas and I ordered a chicken quesadilla. With both shared a side of nachos that were smothered in chicken, cheese, guacamole, peppers and other goodies. The portions that you receive are large...we had leftovers which we reheated later that day and enjoyed it as another meal. Everything was hot, flavorful and delicious!

Normally I don't call out a restaurant by name and write a single blog post about one particular place, but today...I'm totally giving El Costeno Mexican Restaurant a shout-out on our travel blog. We enjoyed THE BEST Mexican food that we have had in YEARS at this place! Not only is their food delicious, it's really reasonably priced!

If your heading to Gettysburg and in the mood for Mexican, we highly recommend this place! You'll find El Costeno Mexican Restaurant located at 39 York Street in Gettysburg Pennsylvania. You can call ahead to place your orders 717-339-0029. We will definitely be dining here again!
