2538 Welsh Road, Philly. Some work friends, who do not always have the same taste in restaurants as we do, went & liked it. DH is always on the look-out for better-than-just-passable Mexican food, and thinks it might be a good place to try for dinner on Father's Day.
I need to add that we will be going with our SIL. His dad has been in the US for over 30 years, but is in all other respects a "professional Mexican". The point is that SIL knows his Mexican food better than the average bear.
Any Chow-ish input would be greatly appreciated!
I personally haven't been there but my sister was there this week and she mentioned that it reminded her of a chain restaurant. Her exact comment was "a step above Taco Bell". Not firsthand knowledge from me, certainly, but take it for what it's worth. She did enjoy her meal but those were her comments.
Is this the one right off the Blvd? I know they just opened a second location...
Anyway, I agree with phillycarol's sister - definitely a step above TB. I went there for a going away party for my husband's coworker. They all raved to him about the food beforehand and they knew I was into food so they insisted I come. I drove an hour, while 7 months pregnant, to go and was SO disappointed. I hear they have good margaritas, which I couldn't have, but the food was so bland.
