We visit this place on a regular basis. It looks like a house only brightly painted until you pull around back to the parking lot. Once you go in, you might think you are in Mexico. Not like in the chain restaurants, because this is family owned and operated. With little shelves of pottery and bottles from Mexico, the paintings... More

Very authentic and family owned. Menu items are homemade on premises, not a chain restaurant . Home made guacamole appetizer is a specialty for the table , ( large amount good for 2-4) Shrimp dishes are very good. Reservations will only be accepted no earlier than 2 hrs in advance .

Yet again I had an amazing meal at La Esperanza. I visited Mexico in May and was dying for some Chilaquiles Verdes, and boy did these hit the spot!! Hubby had their Mole Poblano, which was heavenly, as usual. Of course, I had to have a house Margarita--awesome! Our kids love it here as well, and were happy with their... More

We went here for our adult son's birthday with a party of 8 people including a 2 year old and 5 year old. Even though they indicated they had a child's menu, the portion for the two year old was HUGE (overwhelming for her) and when the 5 year old asked for a single soft taco, the restaurant refused and...

Took family here for combined Father's Day/Birthday celebration. Was not disappointed. Converted house, plenty of parking at rear of restaurant. Average meal was $15, house margarita $5. Family of 8 was very happy with selections. The Alex is a huge burrito that could not be eaten by one person. I will definitely return.

The place is nothing special to look at, a very simple place, but the food is great and and the margaritas are better. The fresh margarita was great! Probably a little too good. The food came in very sizable portions - the fat Alex burrito was comically big - two people split it and brought home left overs. The enchiladas... More

I have to say this place was great. We went on Mother's Day which normally I wouldn't go out for since I find most places subpar on any holiday. This was the exception. Guacamole was the best I ever had. Portions were even a little to big! All food well prepared and delivered hot. Waitress bartenders and hostess stations are... More

I went to La Esperanza Mexican Restaurant tonight with my wife, and it was great. The food was delicious and the price was reasonable. We had Watermelon Martinis, and they were excellent. Only $5 each. The staff was very friendly and the service was excellent. The atmosphere was fun, but not overdone. We will definitely be going back to this... More

Love this place! Don't be alarmed by the exterior - it's pink and in a random location. The delight is the food! The best Mexican you can have in Burlington and Camden county. The guacamole is amazing! A little pricey but the authenticity makes it worth it.
