This our favorite Mexican restaurant in Troy. We have never had a bad meal here. The service is great also.

We have been going here for years, so much that the wait staff have watched my children grow up. We are always treated like old friends and the owner ask about the family. The food is great and it is my preferred Mexican restaurant over all others. The establishment is kept very clean, the food is steaming hot and delicious!... More

I always like to try the Chili Colorado at a Mexican restaurant. To me, the best is a thick, rich red chili sauce with a distinctive kick, coupled with tender chunks of pork (very little fat). I tried the Chili Colorado here, and the sauce reminded me more of Chef Boy Ar Dee tomato sauce than a true New Mexican... More

I have been here several times before but admit I often forget about this place. It's a shame because it's always such good food and they always seem so happy to see me even though they don't know me. I don't come here that often. They have authentic Mexican at an avoidable price.

Not impressed with the quality of the food or the decor. The size of the portions is very good but generic. The place is very dark.

On July 4th, there 2 other Mexican Restaurants that we would have liked to have eaten at in Troy, Ohio, but they were both closed for the holiday, so we settled for Los Pitayos. It was not very good! Marguerites were weak and tasteless. Salsa was runny and not very good. Chips were just so-so. Our family of 4 ordered... More

We dine here at least once a month, whenever we are in a hurry. The service is super fast, and the food is always served piping hot and full of flavor. Margaritas are tasty, and they often have specials, so be sure to ask. Chips and salsa served almost as soon as you are seated, and they are definitely family... More

I recently stayed in Troy when unable to get a hotel room in Dayton and ended up at Los Pitayos for dinner (I love Mexican food). The food was quite good overall, except for the bland salsa. I don't know what they add to the refried beans, but they were amazing! The host could have been nicer, but I would... More

I've been coming to this restaurant for years and have never had bad service or food. You never have to ask for refills, they are there anticipating your every need. I'm from Texas and I have to say, I prefer Los Pitayos food and service over any I've had in Texas.
