Success! Thanks for posting your review of Mexican Post. You’ve done the world some good today.

mediocre at best.

Mexican Post in CC is a comfortable atmosphere and moderately fun if you are college age. The food is good, but I would call it texmex, not Mexican. Drinks are alright for the price, but I wouldn't call them great. \r \r My biggest problem with the place, however, has got to be the manager. He was consistantly rude to me and my friends as customers and to his staff, which he has no problem reprimanding in fron... view more

Totally gone downhill

Been going to both Mexican Post locations for many years. Just stopped into the Cherry Street location for an early dinner and was super disappointed. Won't be going back. The menu has been revamped and scaled way back. (After chatting with the waitress, it's evident it was done as a cost-cutting measure.) The first margarita she brought out was nothing but water. When we mentioned it, she apologized and brought a... view more

Have a drink and leave

I can't imagine why anyone who has eaten here would ever come for round two. There are so many amazing Mexican restaurants in the Phila area, there is no reason to settle for Mexican Post. The Tortilla soup looked and tasted like someone put tortillas and water in a blender and poured it in a dish. The black bean soup was thick and flavorless. The ""snapper"" tasted like it was previously frozen and was topped w... view more

Expectations not met!

I am a lover of food! Of flavor! Especially mexican food; and I have to say the BEST thing I had at the Mexican Post tonight was the Modelo Especial and the salsa :-/ My mom bought my a gift cert for dinner so we went after Christmas shopping today; a long day and, well, we were kinda, no really, let down. The service was GREAT! Fast! Pleasant! But food was...well, eh. We had to dump the salsa into the Queso to... view more

Terrible Food, Good drinks and HH

Probably the worst mexican food I've ever eaten! I ate there a year ago and forgot how terrible it was. The bread they use for all the food is very doughy and undercooked. The ground beef takes and smells like cat food, no joke. Everything has this weird sweetness to it, and no spice or flavor at all. The queso and chips were the only thing we liked, but they are very hard to mess up. We make our own mexican fo... view more

It's ok

The inside is trendy and it's always great to have the option of an outside patio. I've eaten there twice and will say that the food was only mediocre. Not bad, just not great.

Best place to drink and grab some food North of Market Street....

I have visited this location many a times. Matter of fact, I have been visiting Old City Mexican Post since 17 years. There are many reviews written about both these locations. My two cents......\r \r Old City - Been in the city for many years - Almost 20. You will see many of the same employees (Unheard of in the food service industry. - Almost makes me feel like I am in Boston at CHEERS :). They have good food, g... view more

Bar is cool, thats about it

Big mexican food fan, unfortunately have yet to have a good meal here. If you like the Mexican Post, make sure to eat at the Front and Chestnut Street location where they pay more attention to you and your food. Last time I ate here, my girlfriend's enchilada was watered down and tasted as if it had just come out of the microwave. The service has been inconsistent, although last time they were very apologetic afte... view more

Lots of food

I ordered the tamales with chicken and boy was I stuffed when I left! They were ok... a little dry for my taste. Nice decor though...
