El Rey Reviews?

So pathetically excited about the idea of some authentic Mexican food that is easily accesible in Center City, even if it is by Stephen Starr. This place is on the top of my list, but my hopes are so high I know I'm just bound to be disappointed. Has anyone been yet? I'd appreciate any reviews thoroughly!

      I haven't been to the restaurant portion yet, but the Ranstead Room in the back is terrific. Go for the food, have a cocktail in the secluded bar in the back and let us know how it is!! The tequila and honey drink is excellent.

        Have not been yet, but check out Mexico on the Square, Xochitl, and Las Bugambilias for authentic Mexican in CC. Jose's is great too if you can stomach the neighborhood.
