Pabellon is a unique restaurant that serves both Mexican and Venezuelan cuisine at its location on Banksville Road. While Pittsburgh has its fair share of Mexican restaurants and even several Venezuelan restaurants, the combination of the two at Pabellon is special and sure to please.
Alquisiras Paleteria is an unassuming restaurant in Beechview that is known for two things- Mexican food and their namesake paletas.
