I have nothing bad to say about this restaurant. The food was amazing, it was definitely the best Mexican food I've ever had. They also give you chips and salsa or guacamole for an appetizer which was really good. Everything was definitely authentic. The staff was very friendly and kind as well.

We have been to the La Esperanza several times and will certainly return. The food they serve is truly Mexican and not the Tex-Mex variety that is so often represented in other restaurants. We have been to Mexico on several occasions and this is representative of the food served in the Yucatan. People we have met from California has lamented... More

It should be prefaced that there isn't a plethora of Mexican cuisine in the South Jersey area. My dilemma therefore is whether to compare this to Mexican food that I've had in Southern California and Texas vs the competition here in South Jersey. This is fairly good for South Jersey but falls short when judged against many Mexican meals that... More

There is nothing like La Esperanza's homemade guacamole. It beats any other Mexican restaurant hands down.

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
