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.

Great authentic food and nice wait staff. Locals eat here. Fun to sit outside it if is nice because it gets loud inside.

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

But not out of my mind. I'm so picky about my Mexican food. Like seriously. And this place did not disappoint. Great enchiladas, even better chimichangas. And the lemonade was delicious. Small, quaint, friendly. Eat inside or out.

We have gone to El Tule several times and have not been disappointed. We've had both dinner and lunch here. The seafood dishes are fantastic especially the ceviche shrimp over fried plantain and the red snapper dish. I like the fact that it's BYOB and...More

A group of couples decided to give this place a try and were very pleased with the night. BYOB - including tequila- is always a plus for us. The house margarita mix was good. We sat on the back patio that does not offer much...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
