Noisy dining, tight space. No parking

Once you get past the packed in like sardines feeling, it is excellent food. A shame they can't move a block north and triple their dining space. Met friends here and we literally sat in a bay window facing the street in front. Best Mexican food in the area, hands down

It was packed to the brim, but I guess that attests to quality of Mexican food being served. The prices range from $2 tacos to more pricey meals. My meal was small but satisfying, and loved the traditional setting.

Best Mexican food I tasted in conshocken. I'm not Mexican, but I lived in Mexico 3 years and this is the closest I found to Mexican food. El pastor is delicious even in a burrito! My wife loves this place and every time we go, between tacos and sopes she sings. Yes, she does it. Alambre is awesome, even they... More

Truly excellent authentic Mexican food. Vegetarian tacos are excellent and includes vegetables and not just mushrooms which I liked a lot the chorizo tacos are to die for. The salsas served are spicy and are brought to the table in normal squeeze bottles which shows the demand for the salsa. Husband had the Carne sops and termed it great food.nice... More

The food was good on my last visit. However, service could be better. I was not brought what I ordered, and the waitress tried to tell me what she brought me was what I ordered even though everyone at our table heard what I ordered and told her so. In the end, she brought me what I ordered but it... More

No frills but great authentic food. Quick take out but parking is not easy in that part of town. Love the enchiladas with mole sauce!

The food here is always good...but it's never, ever what we order. We used to order all the time, but now we just can't deal with the frustration of food missing, or having sauce, onions, or other items we specifically did not ask for due to food ALLERGIES. When you want the staff to repeat the orders or make sure... More

Best Mexican food EVER!!!! This is now, by far, my favorite Mexican restaurant. Shrimp tacos are my go to dish. We also get chips and salsa/guacamole to start. Sometimes it can get really crowded here, but service is always great. Servers are very attentive to every table. Bathroom could use a little TLC and maybe add some outdoor seating? And... More

Amazing authentic Mexican food at great prices. This place gets PACKED on weekends though and they don't take reservations. The wait can be quite long, so I would advise going early or ordering takeout.

El Limon has the best Mexican I've ever tried. It blows the chain restaurants out of the water. I crave the fajitas on a regular basis. I usually get take out and they are very efficient and always right. Nice people and you can eat in as well. It's at least a twice a month meal for us.
