Mexico on the Square - Pine and 15th

jaba Apr 12, 2010 04:02 PM

I had high hopes for this place as their previous incarnation as Savoy won some Philadelphia Weekly best in Philly award. Unfortunately, I just had a terrible al pastor burrito from here. Dry and bland meat and a dry tortilla. The green salsa offered on the side helped somewhat.

To top it off, I saw a woman who I assume to be the owner yelling at the line cook in front of everyone waiting for their food.

Can't imagine I'll be back.

    Too bad - I've been there twice and very happy both times. Pork Torta first. Two chorizo sopes yesterday. Good flavors, not dry at all and very pleasant people behind the counter.

      Holly, I've got the utmost respect for your reviews, so I'll give them another shot.

      I had a great lunch there the week they re-opened. My only complaint was that it took for.ev.er... But that aside, had two tacos-- pollo and carne asada, and found them both delish. I probably liked the chicken more, and still need to try to the pork.
