We really enjoyed the food and the outdoor setting. They don't serve alcohol here, but it is BYOB so we grabbed some ciders ahead of time! Delicious guacamole and the fajitas were great!

With a varied menu and choices, El Costeno offers both indoor or veranda seating. Also, a small courtyard is available and they are all worthy for the ambience.
Some hesitancy and delay in food, but once it arrived, it was wonderful and definitely Mexican recipe oriented. Reasonable in choices for being downtown and the flavor it brings/.

Food is exceptional. Service a little slow but one server was handling the entire restaurant, and she was very pleasant and we were in no rush. BYOB too! One o my favorite Gettysburg restaurants.

We sat outside on their porch which has overhead fans and gave us a nice view of an historic Gettysburg street. Authentic family recipes and Mexican soda pop. FYI don't expect to get a Margarita there, they don't serve liqueur.

The food at El Costeno is tasty, especially the pork carnitas served with fresh tortillas and delicious spicy salsa verde. MMmnn! Service was fast, food was fresh and the covered porch offered a fun place to watch the (other) tourists go by. Parking is hit or miss, but this restaurant is spot on! It was a little on the pricey side given the area, but perhaps being in the center of the historic district it is reasonable. Nonetheless, it's a great casual come-as-you-are spot for lunch in a touristy historic area.
