Hola, my name is Alfredo Aquilar and I would like to invite you to our wonderful restaurant Las Cazuelas. Originally born in Puebla Mexico, I came to this great country when I was 4 years old. I apprenticed as a kitchen manager at another Mexican restaurant in the Old City section of Philadelphia where I learned my trade from the head chef who became my mentor. Since opening Las Cazuelas in November 1999, we have received great reviews and have been featured in many newspapers and magazines not only in Philadelphia but also around the country. Out of all my achievements, I am most proud of the fact that I have contributed to the community where I grew up. Please visit me and make sure to say hello so that I can thank you personally.

It took a while for us to order , they were really rude when we were trying to pay for our food , the owner tried to keep us in the store because there machine wasn’t reading my card , and the waitresses were paying attention to other tables more then mine .

Although we didn’t know they didn’t sell alcohol. Luckily, they allowed us to step out and bring our own. It’s BYOB. Good was great, and arrived quickly!

Outstanding service and delicious food. The Mexican hot chocolate was superb. Maybe a bit overpriced, but not horribly so.

The service is excellent, they are very accommodating and the food is tasty. My steak was a little burned and i ordered extra as i was still hungry. My husband had tacos and quesadillas which he enjoyed thoroughly. Thanks for a great night!

Our 2nd time here. Food is consistently good. Outdoor seating was nice, a little noisy being next to the firehouse but overall not bad. You’re in the city, so expect noise!

The food was not good at all. The service was horrible. We got seated on a small balcony sat there none one came to even give us water. Then they sat two other people right behind and came with water and attempted to take their order without even offering us water we had to ask for it after being overlooked. When the food finally came it was cold and not appetizing at all. Just overall horrible experience.

Great food. BYOB. Plenty of space for outdoor dining compared to eating downtown in center city or elsewhere in crowded and tight roads for outdoor seating.

Mole was delicious but chicken breast was dry. Would have preferred in an enchilada. We sat at the side table outside. Not the greatest ambiance but private. Service was a little slow at first but server was very pleasant. Margarita mix was very good. Went nicely with our BYOB tequila!

Overall nice experience. Would have been better had I known it was a BYOB but nonetheless a good experience. The food was good. The waiters seemed busy but accommodating. Would recommend not having people sit on the side of the bldg near the alley/dumpster.

Nice byob, chicken empanadas had great crust ..but the chicken was dry. The 2 sauces: sour cream-boring & Chipotle sauce was absolutely horrible tasted like char. The shrimp tacos were ok. Came as 3, 3shrimp inside nothing else, arroz de pollo was tasty but somehow has some sort of seafood in it even though the waitress assured us it was not (my partner got very sick after, as he is allergic to seafood). The churros we recieved were incorrect they were cheese cake stuffed, great idea, poorly executed. They were extremely greasy. Trashed them.We just wanted plain! Overall, would never return unless desperately looking for a byob. Dos seguedas, el camino & jose pastollas, all places I've had a much better experience at.

Food is so good! I had the guacamole, and carne asada tacos which were delicious...the churros are also really great too! You can also bring your own tequila / rum and they will add it in with the house made mixes.

I’ve usually had good experiences here, so I decided to try their brunch (avail Sat & Sun). I’ve only had their lunch and dinner before. We were a party of 10 and for most of our visit, we were the only ones there. Service was slow and some dishes came out cold. We had to send back a glass that had lipstick on it. Overall, the food was okay, but all of us agreed that we wouldn’t be back for their brunch. There are so many other good brunch spots in the area. I’ve had huevos rancheros from Front Street cafe (few blocks away) and that was 100 times better than this place and they aren’t a Mexican restaurant! The empanadas on Las Cazuelas’ regular menu were great (we ordered them as apps) - they came out hot and were delicious. I’ll be back for lunch or dinner.

Good service, intimate tables and meals. Nice for a valentines date. They didn’t let us know it was BYOB, so we were alcohol-less. Only downside really. Will go back. Good food.

The food was fantastic, the waitress was really very nice and friend but, the process with getting the food out seemed frantic. I think they had a rush or something, I feel bad even mentioned b/c she was very nice. We got there at 5:30 and needed to leave by 6:40. The food took a long time but, again, was delicious. As soon as we were done eating, we asked for the check and we ordered dessert at the same time. We paid the check which included the dessert but it was too late. We checked on it a couple of times but finally had to leave so, no churros for us :(
