Modern takes on classic Mexican dishes served up in a funky space with retro, faux-dive decor.- Google
"Clean and tasty dishes, totally different from the stereotypical Mexican food."
"Good tacos, although a little expensive if you get more than three."

The food was very good. Small portions and pricey for Mexican, but I consider this upscale Mexican food, not traditional or street Mexican. Awesome salsa with the chips. Very good hot sauce. Staff was attentive and nice. Would be 5 stars if not for being a bit pricey.

Best Mexican I have been to in Center City. Their Happy Hour specials ($1 tacos and more) are also the best and if you like margaritas, it is your place too !

By far best Mex in Phila., perhaps the best N.of all but a few places N of the Border, and many South thereof. Fantastic selection of Tequilas, Agave, etc. although they are quote pricey. Great atmosphere, decor, service &

Really enjoyed the place. Wait staff is attentive and appear to really enjoy serving their guests. Drey (our waiter) made sure that our experience was memorable. The margarita was one of the best I've ever had, and the zerape was awesome! I will be back!

El Rey has decent food at a good price. Their salsa is good and tastes more like bruschetta than traditional salsa. A better choice is Jose Pistolas on 15th as their food is priced similar and is superior in quality.
