The service is great. Friendly staff will get you nice meals and help you to understand the robust menu options. Mexican is good; peruvian even better. Many visits have confirmed El Tule as a top restaurant for lunch or dinner.

We had been to this restaurant right after it opened several years ago. It was so good, we always planned a trip back. We finally got there and the trip was worth it. The guac and salsa/chips was just spicy enough and very fresh. I...More

We enjoyed the Peruvian sampler and nachos at El Tule this evening and it was perfect for two people. Definitely try the Peruvian sampler if you haven't tried many of the items before! Our server (Richi) was extremely helpful with recommending items! We can't wait...More

Excellently prepared Peruvian dishes... Civiche is a must to try! Occasionally during the year, another Peruvian delicacy is on the menu: Cuy (guinea pig). There are also a number of vegetables not regularly found in US restaurants.

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
