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

This is a small restaurant, especially when the outdoor seating is not available due to weather. The food is great though and the atmosphere is genuine. Have always enjoyed!

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.
