“The food is bland and very ordinary”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

I've recently visited the place with a friend of mine. The food is too Americanized and bland for my taste. The place has a nice decor and the staff seems friendly but a bit annoying. Every time a server or a bus boy came around they called us "amigos", and this became annoying rather quickly. As for the food, the complimentary chips were great, but the rest of the food was sub-par for my taste. We've tried tamales, fish tacos and a mixed fajita. I am sorry to say but I will not be coming back since there are better Mexican places in the area.

“Hola, Hola, Hola.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

A friend of mine and I went to try this place after church one day. It is across from the Neshaminy Mall. It's near the corner, so you have to look for it. Okay, this place was a surprise, it has a really colorful vibe inside. Nice and clean, the employees were also very nice. Didn't have to wait for the food that long, since there was not many people in there at the time we went (Sunday afternoon). The food was very good. If you are looking for a little non-chain Mexican place to eat, try this.

“Awesome surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

After shopping at the mall, we were in the mood for some Mexican cuisine. Not impressed with On the Border in the past, we decided to try a small place tucked away in a strip mall by the driving license testing area. We were shocked by the colorful and festive decor! Wait staff very attentive but not overly intrusive. I tried one of their combo meals, my mate the burrito combo. All was fresh and authentic tasting. This is a byob, but we didn't know. For our next visit, we will def bring our own sangria! This place is a real gem, try it!
