“Real Mexican Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

El Limon is what I always look for in a Mexican restaurant--inexpensive but delicious food. Most "Mexican" restaurants in the area are really Tex-Mex, and mostly "Tex" at that. El Limon serves Mexican food the way I'm used to having it.The menu is simple, but it has all the standards. I really like the nachos (served with guacamole and a light sour cream sauce) and the green enchiladas with tinga (marinated chicken). It's not exactly a fancy dining room, but it doesn't have to be, and they offer take-out too. My only wish is that they had tamales too. Overall, it's not fancy but it hits the spot.

“A Must Try!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

If you like Mexican food, make this restaurant a must try. The menu has many, reasonably priced-options. The tacos are a must try as well as the burritos. If you like chicken, there are two options: grilled chicken or tinge (marinated, shredded chicken). If you like a little spice, the tinga is an excellent choice. Also, the Mole sauce is wonderful...a little spice with sweetness. The restaurant staff is very nice and attentive.

“Fresh & Fast Tacos in Ambler”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Just had great lunch here. The atmosphere is fast-foody, so I would prob not come for a leisurely weekend dinner, but the food was excellent! I had carnitas taco and grilled chicken taco on corn tortillas and they were huge and fresh and yummy! The home made hot sauces can't be beat!!! Prices very reasonable and complimentary Margaritas... hmmm... on 2nd thought might have to go back for dinner.
