Place to go for true Mexican food

Visited after a soccer game. Food here was spot-on, just hit the spot. Menu here has a wide variety of options not just another run of the mill taco joint. Recipes here are flavorful and really stand out nicely. Portions are good, prices are fine. When I think of going out for Mexican food... read more

We were here for lunch with the kids. Place is easy with kids, lots of little things to notice in the decor to keep the kids interested. We ordered the mimosas on special which were not so great. The oj, sparkling wine combination were both cheap quality and tasted just that but were priced pretty cheap as well so not... More

This place is our favorite local restaurant. The food is amazing. The servers are always great- and their drinks are awesome- all for a very reasonable price. We always get a "Te- kill- yu" Margarita- and split it. 45 oz. drink- can't beat it. Their Fat Alex burrito is also our favorite- we usually get the minis- as the regular... More

Very good food, good service and dynamite Margaritas. Authentic Mexican Dinning experience. Would give 5 stars but my clothes smelled of inadequate ventilation.

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
