Good mexican in very basic setting. Take out from here is best option

Nothing fancy. They do have good food, but it is not cheap for a glorified taco stand. It is really best for take out. The place needs a renovation to be worthy of a sit down meal or higher rating. The staff are somewhat lacidasical and service is slow and labored.

A little hole in the wall right off main street in New Hope. Usually not too crazy about places that don't have wait staff. Had to order at a window from a guy who looked less than thrilled to be there. However the food made up for it. Contrary to other reviews, the place was clean and had plenty of... More

Terrible , absolutely TERRIBLE . Kitchen looks filthy . Check out the windows in that place . The counter for sauces were empty and hadn't been wiped off , disgusting . Even if they were full I would not have come close to them . Almost slipped on the tile floor what almost appeared to be grease on them .... More

Have gotten take-out here twice. El Taco Loco was recommended by a Mexican friend, and it did not disappoint. I also like El Tule, but this is great for take-out!

This small tex-mex style restaurant is located on a side street in New Hope near the tracks of the New Hope Steam Train. BYOB. Order at the window, and pay in advance (!) and someone will bring tour food order to your table. Tuesday is all you can eat TACOS!

this is a quick fix American/Mexican food place. Cute and colorful ambiance. The food is very good. Not in any way, true Mexican. None the less, it is tasty.

Easily once a month I have a hankering for their fish tacos. $5 for a perfect rendition. Soups are also excellent.

This is very casual but the food is excellent.You order your food at the counter and pick up your plastic utensils and napkin. Don't let this discourage you!. They'll bring your food and it will be excellent We started with guacamole and crisp chips.My husband had chile rellenos which he swears are the best he's ever had. I'm always pretty... More
