    Fun, loud, great sangria. True Mexican? Not quite. Decent food? Absolutely. Want something authentic? Try the taquerias around the Italian Market. Want something a little more upscale with a liquor license? This is your place.

    Steven Starr's fabulous Mexican in Philadelphia is one of my favorites. Their guacamole choices are outstanding and their entrees are unique and delicious. Don't miss their exotic cocktails. The blood orange margarita is fantastic!

    I like El Vez! It’s a fun place; it has an interesting interior and good food. I don’t even mind that it’s a bit too noisy and can get crowded. My favorite dishes are guacamole, cactus and crab salsa, mahi-mahi tacos and Mexican chopped salad… Oh… make sure you visit their restroom downstairs. And one more thing - don’t forget to get your picture taken inside of a photo booth!

    Great take on Mexican food in the heart of Philadelphia! I loved the style and design of this place, I would love to do a photo shoot in here. The tortilla soup was fantastic.

    One of Stephen Starr's few restaurants where the quality lives up to the price
