For Great Mexican Food, Head to South St – This Mexican restaurant was nothing short of magnificent. We started with appetizers: a chunky guacamole dip served with perfectly crispy home-baked tortilla chips, and a ceviche dish composed of grouper, shrimp, jicama, and mango. I was so enthusiastic about the appetizers that I could have stopped there. However, our main courses were still to come, and I

Philly's Best Surpise!! – This was an amazing restaurant. My sister and I walked down South street to find something to eat after a session at the spas, our decision was easy once we saw the plate of someone who had outdoor seating. The guacomole was delicious. I got a salad with avocado dressing, walnuts and chicken that was to die for. My sister's dish was quite tasty as well. The mojito had a tad too much liquor for me but that's a good problem to have. Great ambience, relatively cheap and amazing food.

Fresh & Wonderful – Found this little place by accident and so happy we did! Wonderful, friendly service and the best guacamole around! I know if all was made fresh to order. The vegetarian quesadilla could have used a little less chesse but all the fresh veggies were great. Tortilla chips made there, the salsas were great too. OVerall a huge thumbs up and a nice change of venue.

Delicious Mexican – We had a great meal. The food was vibrant. Those who have travelled in Mexico can relive the tastes at this restaurant. Maybe, it was the decor - it felt like I left Philly for an hour or two.

Awful – Not authentic. Burnt tortilla chips. Ceviche with water crackers. Foul tasting beef. Tasted old and reheated. COMPLAINED AND THEY CALLED POLICE AND MADE ME PAY FOR RANK FOOD I DIDN'T EAT. WORST RESTAURANT I'VE EVER VISITED. INTERIOR TACKY WITH PAPER NAPKINS. ENTRESS $18-$24. I wouldn't accept them again for free.

Authentic and Delicious!!! – Being a fan of authentic (as opposed to your typical tex mex trying to pass for Mexican!) Mexican food, I was really excited to try this restaurant. Even from the outside it seemed charming and inviting. I can honestly say this place surpassed all of my expectations. The staff was friendly and they really knew what they were talking about. If you're not familiar with the cuisine, I would really recommend asking the servers as some of the sauces I had never even heard of. They know the menu, are v... read more

Busy for a good reason... – We came here to celebrate a family birthday and had to wait 45 minutes to be seated for our 8:30 reservation, but the knowledgeable service quickly brought us to ease. Appetizer portions were on the small side but absolutely delicious, especially the queso and chorizo mini tortillas. Main plates were cooked to perfection and well-priced; it would be criminal to miss any of the buttery-cooked steaks. Overall a great experience, but be prepared to wait.

A bright and cozy Mexican eatery comes from the longtime chef of the venerable and upscale Tequilas. – In Short Despite the cumbersome moniker [something about a Mexican flower], there's nothing complicated about this warm and welcoming South Street newcomer bathed in bright hues and matched with equally sunny service. Black and white photographs of vintage South-of-the-Border film stars offer artistic balance for well-crafted cuisine such as bistec tampiquena and killer crepas.

Great Authentic Mexican Food – We enjoyed an excellent good meal in a attractive, comfortable and intimate setting. The staff was incredibly friendly, professional and attentive. The food was delicious! Three of the four in our party had the chicken, pork and shrimp specials and I had the menu's chicken enchiladas verde . All the dishes were fantastic. They came with standard sides of moist and delicious black beans and perfectly seasoned rice. The authentic Mexican menu offers extensive selections to appeal to all. They hav... read more
