Joe Peña's Beirut

Joe Peña’s – Amor a la Mexicana

One of the oldest restaurants to exist in the area, Joe Peña’s started in Gemmayze to move later to Mar Mikhael. You walk on the sidewalk and then you see the stairs taking you down to that vibrant place that gives the Mexican feel. One bar outside and another one inside.

They serve both drinks and food. And now they have a new service which is open nachos that you add whatever toppings you want, refined beans, cheddar, salsa, sour cream and olives. Not gonna lie, I could eat 3 plates of that.

The bartenders are the best you could meet. Just tell them what you feel like having, and they’ll amaze you with the drinks. Not to forget the oh-so-famous margarita, a must at any Mexican place and especially there. Order guacamole, that’s an experience on its own. They make it right in front of you and it tastes like everything you’d hope it would.
