“The posole was disappointing...”
Review of El Tule - CLOSED

El Tule
Restaurant details
Reviewed 25 March 2013

While it is impossible to judge a restaurant by one dish, based on their posole rojo, I would not eat at this restaurant again. Posole happens to be one of my favorites and I feel I am a good judge of it's quality. At El Tule it was very ordinary and served as I've never seen it before - that is, without shredded cabbage, chopped onions, radishes, and cilantro. They instead served it with only shredded lettuce and adding all those extras is half the enjoyment. The flavor, the pork, and the hominy were all fine but it simply lacked pizazz!!

Neat small town not far from Oaxaca. Had the greenest park areas we have seen in Mexico. The Tule Tree is fabulous. Hope it lasts another 2000 years!

Great seafood restaurant right near the arches - on your left as you face the arch and the giant tree. Fireworks on the festival of candelaria are awesome...

A tree over 2000 years old - one of the oldest living things on the planet! Respect. It looks in great health and is looked after and around there are some markets - a pleasant trip

It's a very, very, very BIG tree...but I would have enjoyed it more in the middle of a forest not in a tourist attraction area...Wish it wasn't included in every single tour of the area...
