“South of the Border Food come North”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

I like the BYOB asspect since you can make a Margarita with real punch not. Friendly staff, average ambience, food not too spicy, nothing out of the ordianry but solid tastes and good value if you are in the area. Don't make a special trip.

“Great Mexican Food”
Reviewed June 17, 2011

This place is a BYOB. So as long as you know that if you want a cocktail. The food is to die for. The best salsa and guacamole in Philly. The portions aren't huge but if you order a few things you'll fill up. Tuesday taco nights are 13.95 for all the tacos you can eat and a $6 daily lunch special are great deals too. Sunday brunches get a complimentary cocktail. They deliver too!

“second time even better”
Reviewed May 27, 2008

I've previously reviewed this Mexican restaurant and just returned with friends. It's even better than I remember! Great food--not the rice and beans type. Well prepared and varied entrees. The tortella soup (sopa azteca) is superb. The lamb and pork dishes are slow cooked and melt in the mouth. The sides are not mere add-ons.

Get here before it's "discovered".
