Good eats

Best tacos in Philly. Cheap, simple, and consistent. A must if you are in South Philly.

Amazing and affordable tacos

So far this is the all around best Taquerias in Philly I've found so far. I've tried all the others in the area of Washington Ave, and have always been really disappointed. My order of choice is the 3 tacos for $6; I usually get Campachano (mix of grilled steak and chorizo), Al Pastor (roast Pork), and Jalapeno Relleno. As with any Mexican restaurant I would highly discourage ordering chicken or any non-grilled meat.... view more

Unpretentious Mexican comfort food

Every time I come into this place and see people getting the tacos and burritos and going out of their minds over how great they are, I can't help but softly whisper ""suckerrrrrs!!"". Don't get me wrong, they're tasty, but what you should be eating here are the main entrees, like the alambre, steak with cactus, shrimp in tequila sauce, seafood stew... they will truly rock your tastebuds. They're a little more expens... view more

Great value at this byob

The food here is cheap and delicious. The carnitas burrito is stuffed with tender, tasty pork (albeit slightly greasy) and perfectly ripe avacado. The salsa verde and al pastor tacos/ burritos also keep me coming back. In response to some of the older reviews, they do accept credit cards now, and the chips are free when you dine in. They're only $1 when you order take-out. You can have a meal for under $10, and you w... view more

Nice Find on Washington Ave.

Good tacos for a great price. Also good burritto's. Cheap and Cheerful. So you can not beat it. Although they did not have pineapple juice. So why did someone say that they did? Oh well. I never thought that pineapple's were native to Mexican food anyway. Or are they? Who cares? My Boyfriend just said my review was crazy. I think he is crazy. Plus he did not even buy me dinner what is up with that? I need to play my ... view more

The best Mexican food in Philadelphia

No exaggeration, not coming from someone who hasn't dined out much. I've ate at most of the Mexican spots in Philly, and Veracruzana is always the best. Every burrito I've had there has been outstanding. The rice and beans are the best I've ever had. The service is good, the prices are reasonable, the atmosphere is relaxed, and the horchata is fresh. Not to mention the place is open late, until midnight if I'm not mi... view more

real mexican food on the east coast

unbelievable and authentic mexican food.. growing up in texas, i can tell you this is one of the few places in this city that serves real mexican food... as far as people who can't deal with the workers who don't speak as english as well... get over yourself.. don't ask for authentic good food and then be insensitive to people who come here who work hard to make a better life for themselves and in the process feed yo... view more

Authentic and great-tasting food, cheap, quick service...

I read the rest of the reviews and for quite a few, I asked myself if these people had eaten at the same restaurant as I had. American cheese? Where did that come from??? The quesadillas and whatnot appear to have Oaxaca or some other kind of Mexican cheese. Oddly enough (but in a good way), they give you extra unmelted cheese on the side for them, along with the other fixings. \r \r Chicken and shrimp as fillings fo... view more

I work at a nearby condo and ordered food from here (had never eaten their food prior to) and 2 hours later I had to walk two blocks to get my food -- it was suppose to have been delivered. The guy tried very hard, even called me twice: The problem? He could not speak English. Perhaps the restaurant could take him to an English as a Second Language class - only because their food is INCREDIBLE, their service is good ... view more

Not Great, But not Bad.

This is a decent Mexican restaurant. The portions are ok, except for the burritos that is a excelent portion. The Tortas de Milanesa are to small for the price. Do not really like that the Tacos are not sold individually. Plus the cheese they use is not Mexican cheese, its like American or Swiss which takes away from the flavor it should have. The service was OK, the food tasted good, except for the pork being extrem... view more
