El Limon is one of 3 Mexican restaurants my coworker and I frequent in the area. El Limon makes the best mole sauce and guacamole I've had! My only complaint is that you don't get complimentary chips and salsa with your meal and the enchiladas...More

If you want authentic Mexican food, this is the place to go! Finding good Mexican food in the Philadelphia area has been a struggle but El Limon fit the bill. Speaking of bills, with it being a BYOB, the cost is extremely inexpensive but the...More

Took my 4 grandkids and parents here for dinner the other night. We really enjoyed all the dishes and their service was wonderful. The shrimp tacos were really tasty and I love their hit sauce.

This is a place I would highly recommend to my ex-girlfriend!! I almost broke my tooth on the chips. Salsa was pico. Enchiladas were bland. Glad I didn't order a cervesa.

A hole in the wall with authentic Mexican food, well prepared by real Mexican servers. I lived in California, and was very happy with the selection and quality. Very inexpensive, but clean, friendly, and delicious!

We went here for lunch and got chips and salsa, loaded nachos, an asada (steak) taco, and a chorizo (spicy sausage) taco! We both enjoyed our meals! Very flavorful and authentic food, generous portions, and good service! We look forward to coming again!

Tucked away spot at the intersection of 352 and Route 30, next to a small Mexican grocery at the back of a small strip of stores. The cooking is stellar, the food is delicious. No frills in terms of décor and worth it for the...More
