I have had many meals at Herby's and it by far my favorite source of Mexican food in the Harrisburg area. Prices are reasonable, staff is friendly, and they serve Margaritas by the pitcher.

I had been here one time before, about 2 years ago. We came back as a treat for my birthday dinner. I can't say it's my favorite Mexican cuisine, however it is the BEST Mexican food that I've found in the Harrisburg area. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting flavorful, good food with an amazing friendly staff!

The food is amazing, the owner is such a wonderful person. She personally comes to your table to ensure you are enjoying your food. The service was great and did I mention, the food was amazing.

This place calls itself "real Mexican cuisine" but it truly a disgrace to Mexicans, food was disgusting. As an example, the rice... tasted like made out of a box, the guacamole taste like onions, and the margarita was sour mix. I will not desire this food to my worst enemies. It was that bad. Please, please, please save your money... More

Took my son out for his birthday on his suggestion. I was disappointed as the facility nickeled and dimed customers. Chips and salsa went for $2.99 and if you wanted a fajita served on a sizzling skillet it was $1.00 more. The food we ordered was well presented in what I considered lunch-size portions although I expect that lunch and... More

Went for the lunch buffet (Thursday and Friday). Good, real food. Friendly service. As close to authentic Mexican as you are likely to find in the Harrisburg area.

This is a place where authentic means unique delicious food. We had several dishes and all of us loved it. Simply delicious.

Had steak fajitas and was given no cheese, no sour cream and no salsa to put on them. My wife's tacos ran water and oil onto her plate when she picked them up. No chips and salsa were put on the table like other mexican restaurants. Very disappointed.

Herby's was the first place where I encountered authentic tacos in Pennsylvania (I'd been to several authentic restaurants in Tucson), and it was a delight. They had lengua tacos! And they used the authentic two soft tortillas instead of those brittle things you used to get in Old El Paso taco kits. That was 18 years ago, and it's been... More
