Love this place! Every dish My husband and I have tried has been excellent. The selection is good and the service is great. The seating is limited but never have to wait long. There is also some outdoor seating. This is s great place and definitely worth a visit!

It had been quite awhile since I'd eaten at El Serape, and when someone suggested it my thought was Really? But a group of us went this week and had an excellent lunch. They have a lunch menu including lunch specials for $12.99 that include soup or salad, an entrée, and your coffee or soft drink. My friend and I... More

Food and service was outstanding- we went with 9 people friends my office. Our waiter recommended great apps that weren't even on the menu, entrees were amazing and real Mexican. Drinks were really good

Fair enough, everyone wants to go Mexican on Cinco De Mayo so you have to expect some delays but what they did here was way over my "acceptable" for a holiday standard. As a general rule I do not like to eat out on "special days" because quite often menus are curtailed and/or pricing reflects an up charge. El Sarape... More

This is one of our favorite local restaurants. Great margaritas and an authentic Mexican menu that never disappoints. Attentive service and reliably excellent food. You cannot go wrong with this one!

El Sarape is a very small place with nice ambiance. It is however very expensive for a Mexican restaurant. Had the Rejones Ahodhes appetizer. Taste was good but it was barely warm when it was brought out. Had the Mexican jumbo which was two very small cheese enchilada, one even smaller bean burrito and a chicken tostada. Been burrito was... More

Small = less noisy but make a reservation. Upscale = Expensive even for good Mexican food. Chips and salsa are not free. Guacamole Real or Queso Fundido = great starters. Tampiqueña = Tops for taste. Green or red hot sauce, mole sauce(the best I've had), bean sauce or mild sauce = all great. Margaritas = worth the price. The bill... More

A Mexican restaurant in Montgomery Co. Pa? That's what this restaurant is. If you want more authentic upscale Mexican food, which this place is not, you need to go elsewhere. We love Tequila's in downtown Philly. El Serape is a small place with a small bar. The people were nice but the service was not what I would expect with... More
