Disappointed that Italios was not open tonight so decided to try Chicanos. Beef Quadidilas were tasteless, no seasoning. Hubby had shrimp burritos. Again bad. The sauce for chips was so hot we couldn't eat it. So sad. Will not return. Thank goodness Italios is around...More

Chicano’s is the best place to go for authentic Mexican food in the Scranton area. Their chicken tacos are my favorite! The restaurant is great for dining in or take out.

Very good authentic food at a great price. Don't let the building turn you away. Go in its worth it.

I eat here almost every week. The tacos are fantastic as well as the burritos. The food is authentic and well priced. The building may not look like much, but this restaurant is definitely worth a try.

Chicanos is one of my family's top 5 restaurants in Scranton and by far the most casual, affordable and family-friendly of the bunch. My husband and I were regulars at the original location when we were dating and continue to patronize the restaurant now at...More
