Re: “Antojitos

I work here and I love my job. I get free transportation and meals, and I still get paid a very nicely. The woman I replaced was fired after consistently showing up late, and this is why she wrote a review telling people "Do not support this business". Alex is a great guy, and I met him after watching his young children in a summer program (great kids!).

Since I get free meals, I end up eating here every single day, and I never get tired of it. All of the food is made fresh by us- chips, salsa, guacamole, even the hot sauce. Look at some of the reviews on Google Plus (4.3 Stars) and Urbanspoon (90%)

Re: “Antojitos

After reading the article published, I need to clarify few points concerning your superficial and inaccurate review of the Antojitos restaurant. First at all, as an authentic Mexican restaurant, Antojitos does not only serve Mexican foods, but also bring to Pittsburgh part of the Mexican costumes and culture. Tamales, quesadillas, tacos, burritos and tostadas, can be served in Mexico for a meal, and also as antojitos. In case you need an interesting story for the newspaper, I am telling you the story behind this name. Antojos are also cravings in a pregnant women, and when I bought the hot dog place, my wife was expecting a baby and craving for spice Mexican food, so there is a sentimental reason behind the choice of that name. I don’t think you read carefully the menu neither: our menu offers more than antojos, we also have chorizo, albondigas soup, tamales, vegetarian plates, accompanied by nachos and home made cheese deep. Probably our meals are too spice for your taste, but this is how we eat in the Barrio. Just a final point: my name is Alex Hernandez, not Alex Fernandez. I noticed the same mistake in previous articles published in the City Paper when I was running the Cozumel restaurant in Shadyside. By the way, my old customers still come here from town to enjoy my food!
