Why wait until Taco Tuesday?
El Buen Amigo serves irresistible Mexican dishes in Scranton. Dig in to all your favorites like tacos, tamales, fajitas, enchiladas, and burritos.
Freshness is the key at this eatery. Each day, they make their own tortillas, salsas, cactus salad, guacamole, and so much more.
The authentic Mexican cuisine is just the beginning. They also have a large selection of homemade pasta and other Italian classics.
You can’t go wrong with the traditional Mexican dishes. Order the soft tacos topped with fresh cilantro and onion or go for a classic quesadilla. The chilaquiles are homemade tortilla chips covered in tomatillo sauce, lettuce, onion, sour cream, avocado, and your choice of meat or egg. If the tamales are on special, you definitely don’t want to miss out.
Be sure to order a side of elote, a popular Mexican street food. It’s corn on the cob slathered with mayo, cheese, and spices.
