My daughter is going to Temple and we were down in Philly visiting. I was looking for something different for breakfast on Saturday that was fairly close to campus. I could not have chosen better, the food was plentiful and very good.

We were introduced to this great little place by our Philadelphia daughter, who'd discovered it when she worked in the area a few years ago. The food was great! We ordered sopes de carne asada, meat, black beans, and cotijo cheese on small thick tortillas;...More

A little hole in the wall establishment that serves up tasty and authentic tacos (corn tortillas, grilled meat/veggies, cilantro and lime--none of the fake American sour cream and cheese crap that's both unhealthy and unMexican) t'd other Mexican street food such as grilled corn on...More

When I was in school at Temple, I went to Taco Riendo regularly. Great tacos, tostadas, and horchata, among other things. The patio is also nice during the spring/summer.
