The food here is absolutely amazing. Tasty, spicy, appetizing. The tacu tacu is out of this world. The service is top notch. However, a LOUD party of 16 in that place can easily destroy any hope of enjoying your meal, as happened recently. This large...More

I would give this place 10 stars if I could! From the moment we walked in, we were impressed. We made a 6:00 reservation for 2 as we heard it gets very crowded, but the place was pretty empty when we arrived. As soon as...More

From the outside, this restaurant doesn't look like much, but step inside and the place is hopping - inside and outside seating. The walls are plastered with favorable reviews from NYC and Philadelphia and include a strong Zagat rating. The food is more Mexican than...More

I have a thing for Ceviche. El Tule did not disappoint. I ordered the Ceviche Trilogy. The flavors and textures were authentic, superb and the presentation was equal to the task. This restaurant takes me to another place. Couldn't be happier.

We were there for our first time for dinner. The ambiance inside was adorable felt like I just stepped into a Latin country. The menu was somewhat confusing and dinner was somewhat pricey. We both opted for a beef dinner and it was wonderful. All...More

If you're looking for what most people around here think of as "Mexican" food, this isn't your place. No burritos, enchiladas, and the like. This is more of a Mexican con Foodie place. Perhaps there should be more emphasis on their being Peruvian, and less...More

I was not impressed with this place. While the staff was friendly and the food fresh and was served timely, I thought that the portions were small for the price charged. The menu has changed and there are not many vegetarian options. If you like...More

I went to El Tule after reading other Trip advisor reviews. I am very glad I did. It is a very cute place with indoor and outdoor seating. It was hot, muggy and threatening to rain so everyone opted to sit inside. When I got...More

The love of family, friends and great food is a tradition for the Egoavils.Having relocated to the United States from Peru in 1992, they sought the opportunities their new home offered. El Tule was previously the home of another restaurant offering Mexican fare. The Egoavil Family has infused the eatery with a vibe all its own. El-Tule’s Mexican-Latin fusion includes traditional Mexican offerings as well as the addition of Peruvian menu items. Peruvian food has been gaining momentum among foodies across the nation, and prior to El Tule was extremely hard to find in the Delaware Valley. El Tule offers both indoor and outdoor dining. Guests may bring their own wine or alcohol of choice. Our patio is dog friendly. *Taco Tuesdays* $3 Tacos Mix & Match ... Pollo, carne asada, al pastor, chorizo, sudadero, vegetable ... Add $1 for shrimp and red snapper tacos - minimum of 2 for offer. ... *Local Wednesday* Ask for our Prix fixe three course $25
