Authentic Mexican across fro Exton Mall
Was out in Exton car shopping last weekend, and almost went for Capriotti's turkey when we noticed this joint right next door. We thought we'd take a chance, and it was a good bet. Buho's Authentic Mexican is very much the Puebla-style home cooking you expect in Norristown, South Philly or Kennett Square. Very inexpensive, fresh, great portions and friendly service. Carnitas were about the best I've had. Moist but not greasy. Huarache was on a tortilla that was crisp, yet still tender. Don't get up that way much, but it is definitely a return if I do.
We were in the area yesterday and stopped by for lunch - all I can say is YUM. DH had a chicken/bean burrito and a chicken taco, DS had a chicken taco and black beans, and I had tamales with refried beans and rice. We also shared nachos as an appetizer - that plate was almost licked clean, I'm not saying by who... but the salsa was delicious! The black beans were creamy and a little garlicky. The pork filling in the tamales was moist and spicy, but the masa-to-filling ratio was a bit off (too much masa, not quite enough meat). Lunch for three was about $35. We agreed that we would definitely go back.
Interesting, I just noticed this place on Monday when I had an appointment across the street. I am pleased to know that it is good--maybe I'll give it a try sometime! I confess to having been a little trepidatious at seeing the words "authentic Mexican" in that location. I live near Kennett Square and Elsmere, DE, where the surroundings just seem a little more authentic Mexican, if you know what I mean.
