Can you imagine a diner's life in Philadelphia without our taquerias?
I shudder at the thought. Of course, the notion that we have mole now so genuine that it's fresh off the FedEx truck from Puebla may be odd for a town that not long ago considered the Speedy Gonzales platter at Tex-Mex El Azteca to be the piata pinnacle of authentic. But in the span of less than a decade, we've seen Philly evolve a seriously sizzling salsa scene, from its high-end nuevo tequila palaces to a growing collection of humble taquerias that answer virtually every craving for genuine Mexican home cooking.

Review from di z. Philadelphia, PA 7/21/2011
"They are the best, I love them. I have had the most amazing mexican and every time I go there it comes with a side of South American TV entertainment! I can barely eat my food, Im laughing so hard! I feel like home. While I live 3 blocks away, I wish they delivered, for the lazy-me days."
Review from Leanne M. Philadelphia, PA 10/10/2011
"YUM! I must say Mexican delivery is where it's at! I wish this place was open seven days a week because it seems like I am always craving it on Monday when they are closed."
Review from Jessica E. Philadelphia, PA 1/23/2011
"I absolutely love Mexican food and am always wary of trying new places for fear of disappointment, but this place was great - the food and the service.
They didn't mind at all that we needed a table for 9 (obnoxious, I know). It's BYOB which is always a plus. The chips that they give you for free at the start of the meal have refried beans on them - really nice touch! Guacamole was definitely the best I ever had anywhere - when we ran out of chips, we were all reaching over and eating it with forks.
I got chorizo quesadillas which were a tiny bit too simple but still very well done. The most expensive things on the menu were only $12, which were huge platters that came with your main dish plus rice, salad, and refried beans.
Atmosphere is really simple and un-fancy, which Mexican places should be. Our server was fantastic. She was really friendly and patient, especially considering that there were 9 of us. She even offered to help us carry leftover beer out to the car, which was hilarious."
