Food was ok. Margaritas were so so. Ordered an Octoberfest and it had a different/strange taste to it. Atmosphere is below average and the place needs some updating. El Vez in Philly is probably my most favorite Mexican place to eat so far. I think I may be one and done after my first La Esperanza experience. The server was... More

We have heard about this restaurant for years but never have tried it. Saturday we decided to give it a go. It was 5 Pm so we knew it would be crowded. It was. A twenty minute wait, which is actually not bad. We were seated in a small room down a small set of steps. The first thing we... More

I was excited to try La Esperanza because there were so many good reviews on here. I sure was disappointed! There were four of us, and we all agreed that the food was average. The worst part was the service. We waited about 40 minutes to get the food -- yes, they were busy as it was a Friday night... More

We drive 45 minutes just to eat their food. They have great tacos and traditional Mexican dishes. Very busy on the weekends and holidays. Great Mexican candy On the counter.

We heard so many good reviews about this place. We were very disappointed with our experience. Our first impression was it was dirty. The walls were splattered with food, the glass shelves near our table were covered with dust and the table itself was sticky. The restaurant was ridiculously loud and extremely hot. I ordered chicken tacos and the chicken... More

Take everything you know about Taco Bell, Chipotle Grill, Don Pablo's and Chili's. Now forget all that and prepare to enjoy "for real" Mexican. Everything is fresh, prepared to order and like it came straight from abuela's cocina. Burritos, fajitas, enchiladas, tamales...and so much more. Waitresses are helpful and knowledgeable and can guide you through the menu if you need... More

We ordered the guacamole which was creamy but good. Huge portions: burritos are giant! The Fat Alex was amazing - the steak was tender! My daughters Chicken Burrito was huge and she enjoyed 1/3 and brought the rest home. My husband's Enchilada's Verde was delicious with just the right amount of heat. Now we have lunch for tomorrow! Service was... More
