    Enjoyed the kale salad, pork al pastor and brisket tacos. The restaurant was busy and the noise level was off the charts. Service over all good and knowledgeable - we did have to wait for an entree that caused some concern as all other (3) meals were delivered together and were nearly consumed by the time the fourth entree arrived. Probably better meal pacing and lower noise levels during week night visits.

    Great dinner at a reasonable price. Lots to choose from and lots of unusual choices so the menu invites diners to return again to try new dishes on the next visit. Even better for us, everything can be made gluten free. It was an enjoyable evening out, we'll be back soon.

    I went here for the first time a couple days ago with a friend. We were seated immediately. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. I ordered the "La Paloma" drink which was very good and we ordered chips & guac which came with salsa. The guac was amazing! I got the fish (battered tilapia) tacos for my entree which comes with two large tacos instead of the 3 smaller tacos. The fish tacos were sooo good and they give a good amount of fish in the taco. My friend got the Al Pastor tacos, which she also loved. She scraped the plate clean! We really loved the food in this place, the service was great, and I love the decor of it! I will def. be back!

    The food was awesome and authentic. I liked the decor of the place very much. But we came for dinner and it was SO dark where we were sitting! I could barely see (and I'm 24, not 84). Also don't like having to sit very close to other tables, which is what the seating is like here. And our waitress, while not rude, was much more friendly and personable with the tables around us than us.... And I know for sure because we were so damn close! And she never brought the chips and salsa she asked us if we wanted (we said yes), but brought the other two tables. We were really hoping for a seller experience since it was our anniversary dinner. We had their restaurant week selections and they were awesome. Also the food runner was lovely.

    Pros: Excellent soft, round tacos. Traditional Mexican style. I had the mushroom which was fabulous. My friend had chicken which she said was great. My friend thought the guacamole was excellent. I found it bland. Cons: It is really, really loud The chips that come with the quac and salsa aren't good AT ALL. Bland, no salt, just blah. Given how good the tacos are, it's just strange. The only salad choice was a kale salad. I love a great green salad, like the one at El Vez.

    The Feliz group of restaurants meet let me down. I have been to all three now and the La Calaca location was my favorite until we arrived at the Taqueria Feliz location on Main Street in Manayunk. These two locations take the food to another level, now I don't have a favorite anymore, I will go to either one whenever I am in their neighborhoods! Favorite dishes are as follows: Kale Salad, fish tacos, carnitas tacos, plantains and beans and rice. You must go here!

    All the food (+ margaritas!) was delicious. The lamb heart skewers are definitely something adventurous to try that won't disappoint. My only complaint about my tacos is that they were REALLY spicy- but the flavors were still great. Next time I'll ask about spice level before I order. Overall, excellent taqueria!

    I have lived in the Manayunk and Roxborough neighborhoods for the last three years and the addition of Taqueria Feliz has been one of the best things to happen to the area. I love the restaurant and the margaritas and authentic fare are great (I generally don't even like margaritas that much). This is one of the first restaurants I recommend to friends who come to visit.

    The food is prepared fresh as advertised which a cut above most Mexican eateries.The Queso Fundido appetizer, despite containing fresh peppers (which warranted an advisory from our server) was not at all spicy, although the dish was tasty. The chicken enchiladas were quite good. They were large and firm, with a sauce that tasted of fresh tomatoes. Unfortunately the Pork al Pastor tacos were not as successful. The meat was dry which was not how they are intended. The service was variable. Our server was a bit over-attentive, but took the tacos off the bill. Our entrees were quite slow to come out; we didn't need to hear the kitchen got a lot of tickets all at once. A prepared kitchen should be ready, and I have seen this place way busier.

    We meet friends often in Manayunk for dinner. We decided to check out Taqueria Feliz. The decor is funky and fun! We started at the bar. The bartenders were great with their suggestions. Margaritas were out of this world! I had the lamb tacos which were delicious. The guys had the fish tacos and devoured them quickly. My friend had the vegetarian gordita special. All of the meals were fabulous as well as the side dishes. Service was quick and attentive. A wonderful dining experience.

    Delicious. If you are gluten free, this is the place for you because there are scrumptious choices and knowledgable wait staff. The others who are not loved it just as much. I loved my fish Tacos made with corn tacos. I had one fried and one grilled. MMMMMMMMMM!

    My boyfriend and I often come here for the margaritas and the excellent Mexican food. I just wish it weren't so loud! We often find ourselves having to yell across the table to each other. And the last time we were there they were clearly understaffed. Our waitress was lovely but she was constantly running around so we had to wait 20 minutes to order.

    Went with my husband and two children for a celebratory dinner. Made a reservation the same day and seated right away. The restaurant is colorful, bright, small, but feels bigger. Nice bar area, outdoor seating, nice size tables not too close together. We ordered the fish tacos (grilled), the pork carnitas and the grilled pork tacos and one of the enchilada entrees. We ate in silence for several minutes because the food was so good. Not a bit left on our plates. Our waitress was attentive and quick and our drinks arrived quickly and we always had water refilled. Great food, great service, great dinner. We'll be back!

    Although the noise level was a distraction, our server was gracious and generous with her time to create a satisfying visit. We shared three delicious salads, kale, watermelon, and the heirloom tomato. We all agreed that the salads alone were enough for a return visit. Then we added the wonderful cocktails and tacos to our return list. This was a fun evening.

    I can eat here any night of the week, because the food is fantastic. The service is usually good, even when they are busy. This time it was even better....we were seated by two loud children, and a server must have seen my face, because she approached us and asked if we'd like to move before I asked. Thank you to that server for saving our dining experience...and my hearing!

    We went here for dinner and we were able to sit outside, which was especially nice because the inside was so loud! However, any place that is creative enough to come up with cauliflower tacos already impresses me. They were DELICIOUS! So much so I could eat them often. Others with me got mahi tacos and steak tacos. All were very pleased with their meals. Delicious red sangria and a good beer selection. We will definitely be back!

    Not only was the meal and service good, but they were glad to offer a replacement salad for one that was spicy. A bit disappointed they took that hot dog appetizer off the menu, but our server said they could probably whip it up for us - and they did. That's going the extra mile.

    We've been to La Calaca Feliz, and La Cantina Feliz (same owners) and liked them, so had to try this. We had fun. The menu was mostly tacos, but they were good, presented in an interesting way, and fun. We tried the tacos de chapulines (grasshoppers), which was not to my taste, but it was fun to say I had tried it. The service was excellent. The restaurant was just slightly over-airconditioned for us, but we didn't notice after being there for a while.

    I requested an outdoor seat and was given a one on this beautiful night. That was a good start, as the restaurant does get rather loud indoors. We enjoyed the nachos immensely. The order is huge and with the brisket topping and all the rest of the toppings layered on and freshly prepared, it was excellent. a meal by itself! The fish tacos were delicious. The chicken skin tacos were very tasty (although I felt guilty eating them at my age) and the watermelon salad, which was also very delicious. Overall, my wife and I were very happy with our dinner!It is much more casual that Cantina Feliz in Fort Washington, which we also enjoy much!!
