Not blown away but a decent Mexican restaurant. $4 margaritas on happy hour. Tacos 2-3$. The salsa was a bit flavorless and watery.

Great drinks - get a manhattan. You can't go wrong! Flavorful shrimp tacos. Tasty beef. Spicy quacamole with just a hint of cilantro. Sit at the bar and watch the tattoo crowd drift in and out.

Let me preface this by adding When I chose to get a house it needed to be within 3 blocks of this place. (Stay with me here) Ever seen the movie Field of Dreams? That's the one with the quote "if you build it, they will come". Well when James Earl Jones walks into the cornfield and disappears in the... More

I love loco pez, great food!! It tends to be busy but it usually doesn't take long to get a seat if none are available. (Also nice there tends to be parking available as well). The chicken tacos are good and I love the tortilla soup!! some different spices in the soup but once you get past the first shock... More

Awesome place. Cash only so know that up front. Went for Sunday Brunch and it rocked. All the drinks and food have some neat twists and kicks. The portions are generous and delicious. Will be back here again for sure. Everything tastes fresh and comes out just how you want it. Great place all around.

In advance of a long evening at Festival Pier I thought it wise to have a full stomach and avoid the high prices at the venue. Loco Pez has been on my radar from some time so we entered and sat ourselves across from the bar. At first glance the place seemed small but offers ample seating in the back.... More

My 20 something daughter told me about this little place in Fishtown. She said it was amazing and she is correct. She's a vegetarian and was quite happy. Meat lovers will be thrilled at the choices you have to stuff into enchiladas, nachos etc. Lots of food to be washed down by margaritas that taste homemade--no bottle mix.

Ok, so the place we wanted to go on our way in to Philly was closed. What an amazing thing that was, because, thanks to Draft Mag, it pointed us in the direction of Loco Pez. The service was awesome, the beer selection great and the food was absolutely amazing. It's a hidden gem that I'm so glad we found.... More

I really like this place. All tacos have names that I don't rember but Guac is really fresh and Ground beef taco and Carny are great.
