But not out of my mind. I'm so picky about my Mexican food. Like seriously. And this place did not disappoint. Great enchiladas, even better chimichangas. And the lemonade was delicious. Small, quaint, friendly. Eat inside or out.

A group of couples decided to give this place a try and were very pleased with the night. BYOB - including tequila- is always a plus for us. The house margarita mix was good. We sat on the back patio that does not offer much...More

We tried this Mexican/Peruvian restaurant recently on the recommendation of a friend. The place has a casual friendly and vibe. Our waiter was excellent and asked us if we had ever been there before. As we had not, he spent time and explained their concept...More

Went to celebrate Father's Day...we have never been there. The food was great, the service was great too, it was just too hot to enjoy anything. The air conditioning while on...was clearly not doing the job. I was sweating while eating!

Not a 5 star restaurant, with that said, the dishes we had were bursting with flavor and the young lady that waited on us(Leah?) was delightful. I would go back.

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 is dog friendly. *Taco Tuesdays* $3 Tacos Mix & Match ... Pollo, carne asada, al pastor, chorizo, sudadero, vegetable ... Add $1 for shrimp and red snapper tacos - minimum of 2 for offer. ... *Local Wednesday* Ask for our Prix fixe three course $25
