Authentic Mexican food. Close to the Liberty bell. Service was very good, food was served hot. Very favorable fajita steak. Chips and salsa good as well. Prices are low quality is high.

“Not authentic , terrible flavor ”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

I'm from the US, my partner from Mexico. I genuinely think Taco Bell has better food. The margaritas are pure sugar (like you'd expect on an all inclusive cruise ship), the food is packed full of bland fatty ground beef, tons of melted cheese to hide the lack of flavor, and stale rice. It's really sad, because the place has a lot of character and the staff are friendly, but the good is just unacceptable. A regular dinner plate is about $16 and should cost about $4.95.

Any taco truck in Philly is hands down better. Avoid this place.

“Real Mexican food for good prices in downtown of Philly”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

We went there after a morning walk around historic sites of Philly. The restaurant looks small and not inviting from street, but inside you get really good service, authentic mexican food for good prices. We really liked original mexican limonades. I definitely recommend going there.
