Description: 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. They have now realized their family dream of owning and operating their own restaurant. 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.Subpages

“What a wonderful surprise!”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We decided to try this restaurant when we got a Groupon offer. The food choices were a wide variety of authentic meals from Peru and Mexico. When our lunch arrived it was obvious that the food was fresh and delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed it! The staff was very friendly and helpful. We'll definitely visit again and highly recommend this restaurant.

“Very exciting menu”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Great Peruvian dishes. Best ceviche I've ever had. The shrimp soup is to die for. Service is very good. This is a BYOB, which I like very much.

“A Talented Kitchen With Wonderful Ethnic Offerings”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

On a quiet Monday evening after the Super Bowl, my wife and I experienced our first exposure to Peruvian food at El Tule. Our dinner and appetizers had elements of fish, crab or beef with a wonderful medley of peppers, onion or citrus. The ingredients were fresh and the offerings were skillfully prepared. We look forward to returning for additional Peruvian dishes along with their Mexican.

El Tule does not have Mexican Restaurant competition in this area and Peruvian fare is rare. The Mexican menu draws in an crowd that can have their horizons broadened by excellent Peruvian food.

Two thumbs up!

“Lunch”
Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

Stopped there for lunch and will be back for dinner! Service and food were excellent. I had a Peruvian fish soup that was out of this world. Just what I needed on a cold day in February. My wife had a Mexican dish and loved it.
