Had a large party of 8 so I reserved a table. Upon arrival the restaurant informed us they were running behind, waited 15mins from reservation time before being sat (arrived a little late to reservation). After getting sat everything was fantastic, fajitas and shrimp enchiladas were fantastic, drinks took a little while to come from the bar but that’s the only complaint I have.

This place had so many positive reviews, I was really excited to go but the food was very average at best. The greeter (was maybe the owner) was adorable and super awesome and the ambiance of the place is fantastic. After that.... kinda went downhill.

Our server was ... OK. I'm not a demanding patron but a smile and some eye contact, as well as acting like you care that we are there would be nice.

The food was ... OK. I've had better Mexican food in Pennsylvania frankly. The ceviche was nothing to write home about (a bit bland). I had the Cuanco Bowl, which was a nice presentation (despite the offputting green rice) and good chicken but the lime vinaigrette dressing had SO, SO, SO much garlic (which I had put on before checking since it didn't mention garlic) that the food became inedible, sadly. My colleagues had fajitas and reported liking them.

The food fresh and delicious! This place should be packed. If i had any advice....tableside guacamole is a must for more upscsle spots! Tacos are remarkable...lots of food!

I thought their queso was chunky and a little stale. It came out a couple minutes after we ordered so it was probably sitting in a luke warm pot. The other food and salsa was very good. The margs were too sweet unfortunately, they tasted like a pre-made mix.

A nice casual mexican restaurant. The drinks were a bit mediocre, but the food was tasty. There are many other mexican restaurants that are as good or better, so this did not stand out in any way.

This is quickly becoming one of my staples around town. I think it is a great location for it, in hopes to revive the social hour life that travis walk once had, and started to fade. Even if it doesn't do that I am glad to have found it's good food, and good drinks! The service is always great, and I have yet to try something I didn't enjoy. I would tell you if I did. Personal favorites are the Chilaquiles and Remolino Margaritas. The guac is also very good and I always remember the mango ceviche I tried when I first went but I haven't seen it again on the menu. I can only speak for the food that I have tried, and well that includes the Mole, enchiladas, breakfast bowl, tacos and they are great. The one thing I am NOT crazy about is the queso, but I am Very picky when it comes to that.

El Vecino has some of the best Mexican food in town. The service is out of this world, and so are the margaritas. Great patio and great bartenders. This place is a neighborhood gem. If you have never tried it, do yourself a favor and eat there soon!
