I wouldn't classify the cuisine as what you would find in Mexico since it caters to US tastes, but it has very tasty options. The chips are amazing, definitely not enough of them in one serving for two people! The dishes are decent-sized and there...More

Great and interesting food and good drinks. Not cheap, but well worth the cost. Park in the municipal lot nearby -- great for a visit to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which is down the street.

We've now been here for brunch and dinner, and both were fantastic! I can only assume lunch would be great, too. Creative and authentic Mexican cooking with super-fresh ingredients. Multiple kinds of guacamole prepared tableside at dinner are terrific as well. Kid-friendly but couple-friendly too!
