On a beautiful summer Saturday afternoon I took my wife and 3 young kids here. The place was roomy inside with an option for outdoor patio. Overall a great dining experience!

This is watered down Tex-Mex. The food is barely passable for Mexican, the drinks somewhat better, but my marguerita was served in a plastic cup! Never had one in a plastic cup before. It was OK but certainly far from the best. The food is...More

The food was excellent. The staff could smile a bit and be a bit more attentive, but it was St.Patricks day and they were dealing with a few rowdy customers, so they were a bit frazzled. Portions were huge and cost was good value.,

Met here as the beginning of a tour and was crowded but noticed the 2 bartenders barely made eye contact and worked at a leisurely pace. Started our night in the wrong foot. Owner needs to clean house and hire some "hungry" unemployed bartenders.

This has been a request of mine on many past Birthdays-Mexican Post in Olde City with friends. It's convenient for after if you want to take bar hoping, good food, and reasonable prices. Only draw back is it is on the cozy side so all...More

The Mexican Post on Chestnut Street near Front is one of our favorites. You get a huge plate of food for not a lot of cash and the food is good! I'm not Mexican so I can only guess that the food is authentic, but...More

Nothing special here. It is OK if you just need to grab a bite. It is too loud to have a conversation even early in the week. There is an outdoor patio but the smell of sewer gas is so strong on the approach that...More
