Was told 40 minute wait, but was over 1 hr. Then tables were seated after us and got their food way before us. I think they forgot about us. Food was good but overall experience was bad.

When we get a chance to get together without the kids, we wanted to try a place none of us had been before. We were seated quickly, ordered quickly. House margaritas were yummy and cheap ($5). Food was good, and there was definitely enough to take home. Our waitress wasn't all that attentive, we probably would have had more margaritas,... More

Love this place. Can go for a romantic evening or a group of Friends. The food is great. Best quacamole around. The quantity of food is huge. Cannot wait for my next visit.

One of our favorite restaurants, and not just within the category of Mexican food. They serve consistently delicious Mexican dishes. The buzz is that it's "authentic," but not being Mexican, we can't vouch for this claim. However, the food is several notches above Baja Fresh or On the Border. The service is extremely friendly and accurate. Our server knows our... More

On recommendation of a friend, we tried LaEsperanza. Everything was very good down to the the dessert. We started with the cerveche which was fresh and delicious. All our entrees were great too. I would definitely recommend this place !

Food was ok. Margaritas were so so. Ordered an Octoberfest and it had a different/strange taste to it. Atmosphere is below average and the place needs some updating. El Vez in Philly is probably my most favorite Mexican place to eat so far. I think I may be one and done after my first La Esperanza experience. The server was... More

We have heard about this restaurant for years but never have tried it. Saturday we decided to give it a go. It was 5 Pm so we knew it would be crowded. It was. A twenty minute wait, which is actually not bad. We were seated in a small room down a small set of steps. The first thing we... More

I was excited to try La Esperanza because there were so many good reviews on here. I sure was disappointed! There were four of us, and we all agreed that the food was average. The worst part was the service. We waited about 40 minutes to get the food -- yes, they were busy as it was a Friday night... More
